“I don’t vote, so that’s an easy answer,” Petraeus told ABC’s “This Week.” “And I also did not support him nor did I oppose him. Nor did I support or oppose any other candidate. I’ve truly tried to be apolitical, nonpolitical,” he said Sunday.

Petraeus met with Trump last week, as the president-elect considers the former CIA director for secretary of State.
