50 Republican National Security Officials Reject Trump

Fifty senior Republican national security officials have issued a stinging rejection of their party’s White House nominee Donald Trump, warning he would be “the most reckless president in American history” if elected.

The group, some of whom already announced they would not vote for Trump, included former homeland security chiefs, intelligence directors, senior presidential advisors and a former US trade representative. They served under Republican presidents from Richard Nixon to George W. 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 on Monday.

Their disavowal of the Republican presidential candidate was followed by another setback for Trump, when influential US Senator Susan Collins said Tuesday he was “unworthy” of America’s highest elective office, and will not receive her support.

“I will not be voting for Donald Trump for president. This is not a decision I make lightly, for I am a lifelong Republican. But Donald Trump does not reflect historical Republican values nor the inclusive approach to governing that is critical to healing the divisions in our country,” Collins wrote in an op-ed article appearing in Tuesday’s Washington Post.
