Former psychiatrist and conservative pundit Charles Krauthammer has died. He was 68.
Krauthammer released a letter on June 8 stating that his battle with cancer was drawing to a close.
Krauthammer was a Harvard-educated psychiatrist who was paralyzed in a diving accident. After practicing for only a few years, he began to write a column for the Washington Post. It was for this column that he received the 1987 Pulitzer Prize. His 1990 book, "Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes, and Politics" became a New York Times bestseller, remaining in that position for 10 weeks.
While Krauthammer was a staunch conservative, he did not shy away from criticizing Donald Trump and stating that he would not vote for him.
Krauthammer is survived by his wife Robyn and his son, Daniel.
