Fifty Republican national security officials issued their rejection of the party’s presidential nominee Donald Trump on Monday. The group said that should he be elected, he would be “the most reckless president in American History.”
The group comprised of former homeland security chiefs, intelligence directors, senior presidential advisors and a former US trade representative. All served under Republican presidents from Nixon to Bush.
“We are convinced that he would be a dangerous president and would put at risk our country’s national security and well-being,” they wrote in a statement published in The New York Times.
Experts declared the billionaire unfit for office, by saying that Trump “lacks the character, values, and experience to be president” and displays “alarming ignorance of basic facts” of international politics.
The New York real estate mogul also has shown no willingness to learn about foreign affairs or national security threats, “acts impetuously” and lacks self control, the statement said.
The group of Republicans joined members of the security establishment who have gone against the nominee, including former CIA director Michael Morell, who last Friday accused Trump of being an “unwitting agent” of Russian President Vladimir Putin. MJM
