Conservative national security leaders unite to oppose Trump
Donald Trump is unfit to be commander in chief, says group of influential Republicans
“Maclean’s” Magazine is a Canadian neo-con rag along the same lines as Time or Newsweek. And like Time and Newsweek, they are desperate to maintain their illusion of relevance, power and influence over their infinitesimal readership.
Scanning through the article and merely reading the names tells you all you need to know about where the story is coming from:
Michael Chertoff, Eliot Cohen, Dov Zakheim, Robert Zoellick, Richard Haass, Iva Zoric about the only name missing was Henry Kissinger…except the article also expressed concerns from the Council on Foreign Relations itself.
Republican national security leaders and experts have assailed GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump as unfit to be commander in chief, calling him dishonest and describing his positions on key issues as dangerous and uninformed.
The broadsides began Wednesday evening and carried into Thursday when Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., the chairman of the Armed Services Committee and the 2008 presidential nominee, said that Republicans should “think long and hard about who they want to be our next commander in chief and leader of the free world.” Earlier in the day, the 2012 presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, said that if the GOP chooses Trump, “the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished.”
