It is abundantly clear that Donald Trump is grossly unqualified to be commander-in-chief. He is clueless about international affairs and questions the NATO alliance, which has been a cornerstone of American foreign policy for almost 70 years. Trump says he knows more about ISIS than “the generals do,” but I highly doubt he could even name one United States general.
This past summer, a group of 50 highly acclaimed former national security officials, including former Homeland Security secretaries Tom Ridge and Michael Chertoff, wrote that Trump “would be a dangerous president and would put at risk our country’s national security and well-being.” Truer words have never been spoken. Perhaps one day the Republicans in this region will also have the courage to speak out against their presidential candidate.
