More and more people are jumping abroad the Trump Train. Just like the wide appeal of Ronald Reagan led to the phenomenon of “Reagan Democrats,” the populist appeal of Donald Trump has attracted him support of many Democrats. I’m sure his opponent being the most disliked candidate in history isn’t hurting either.
In the Republican field there was a short-lived “Never Trump” movement, but as candidates dropped out, support consolidated behind Trump, for the most part. The same can’t be said among Bernie Sanders supporters, a third of which aren’t expected to vote for Hillary at all.
Bill Clinton may have ruled as a moderate-Democrat, but Hillary is anything but. She’s promised to continue the policies of the Obama presidency, and I think we’re all aware that we can’t afford a third (and potentially fourth) term of that. Now, even some of those who were once in her husband’s camp have turned against her.
Former President Bill Clinton’s one-time CIA director James Woolsey is officially working for the Donald Trump campaign as senior adviser, coming out against his old boss’s wife, Democratic nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton.
“I have been a ‘Scoop Jackson,’ ‘Joe Lieberman,’ Democrat all of my adult life, but I am pleased to be asked to participate with others I respect in advising GOP candidate Donald J. Trump on the urgent need to reinvest in and modernize our military in order to confront the challenges of the 21st century,” Woolsey said in a statement released by the Trump campaign.
“Trump’s commitment to reversing the harmful defense budget cuts signed into law by the current administration, while acknowledging the need for debt reduction, is an essential step toward reinstating the United States’ primacy in the conventional and digital battlespace.”
Woolsey, who served as Bill Clinton’s first CIA director from 1993 to 1995, says that as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, “demonstrated a complete lack of understanding and an inability to lead the agency she headed in such a way as to maintain its mission and security.”
“Based on the emails thus far released we know that Secretary Clinton also lacks the ability to lead her senior managers while complying with and maintaining the basic protocols designed to protect our government’s sensitive and classified information,” Woolsey said. “Trump understands the magnitude of the threats we face and is holding his cards close to the vest.”
Woolsey also appeared on CNN to push his decision to advise the Trump campaign against his old bosses.
Liberals will tell you that Hillary has the foreign policy record that Trump lacks, and while Trump lacks a foreign policy record, Hillary boasts one of disaster. The foreign policy community doesn’t want her anywhere near our military – and for good reason! Get the word out, share this post on Facebook and Twitter.
