50 republican foreign security experts have signed a document to denounce Donald Trump from his presidential candidacy. These same republicans are vowing to not vote for him as well in this upcoming election.
Many of the GOP’s against Trump are former foreign security experts. These are men that have served the Nixon and George W. Bush administration. That’s a pretty big deal.
These were the same dudes running things during the 9/11 attacks. They were also there at the start of the Iraq war. If foreign security experts are telling us that we shouldn’t let someone run our country, shouldn’t we listen?
Especially if these experts were around at the beginning of this war. The GOP is literally telling us that Donald Trump can’t handle being under pressure during times of crisis.
Here’s a quote from the letter
” From a foreign policy perspective, Donald Trump is not qualified to be President and Commander-in-Chief. Indeed we are convinced that he would be a dangerous President and would put at risk our Country’s national security and well-being”
Michael Hayden, the former director of the CIA added his signature to the letter. Michael Chertoff and Tom Ridge, former homeland security officers signed their names as well due to Trumps behavior. A lot of these foreign security experts wanted to stay loyal to their party.
The GOP tried to give Mr. Trump a chance to prove his worth. Unfortunately for the them he did not come through. You need more than speaking your mind and winning popularity contest to be the President.
Foreign security experts such as John Negroponte, former Director of National Intelligence and Deputy Secretary of State signed the letter as well. So did Eric Edelman, who was the national security adviser to former Vice President Dick Cheney. These are just a few out of the 50 that have signed and agreed.
