High-level security threat
Editor: As a former Navy enlisted man and an officer I am concerned with the threat to national security President Trump poses.
His attacks on our intelligence agencies and cozy relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin are un-american.
Recently, Trump dismissed the input of his intelligence chiefs about the threats posed by Russia, China, North Korea, Iran and the Islamic State terrorist group. Trump continues to question the assessment of our intelligence agencies that Russia meddled in the 2016 election. Trump started an ongoing trade war with China, which adversely impacts the global and U.S. economies.
He erroneously believes North Korea is not a nuclear threat to the United States. He wants to pull our military out of Syria, which would allow ISIS to reconstitute itself and allow Turkey to attack our allies, the Kurds.
According to Rex Tillerson, former secretary of state, Trump doesn’t like to read. According to John Kelly, Trump’s former chief of staff, Trump shows impulsive decision making. According to White House sources, it is difficult for Trump to comprehend and process complex information, such as intelligence reports and military scenarios. He does not concentrate well on matters. He is a threat to our national security and should be voted out of office.
