It looks like Hillary’s campaign has fully ground to a halt in recent weeks and now the CIA Director during Bill Clinton’s presidency has come out and endorsed Trump.
James Woolsey served for two years between 1993 and 1995 as the Director of the CIA and has trashed Hillary’s performance when she was Secretary of State.
He has now announced that he is endorsing Trump, He said that Hillary has:
“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.”
The Clinton campaign realized early on that her resume would disqualify her for the presidency so they instead focused on creating an image among potential voters that Donald Trump is more deplorable and poses a greater risk than she would be in the White House.
That approach has failed to convince those entrusted with protecting the country, though. Last week 88 retired generals and admirals endorsed Trump.
Now it’s Woolsey’s turn after having waited to see how Trump would handle the information he began receiving at security briefings. Woolsey had this to say about Trump:
“Trump has come out on two things that I think are important: first of all, he seems to be very much more so than his opponent in favor of a strong defense budget and we’ve got a lot of space to make up problems that have been left in defense by the Obama administration.
“The other is that he seems willing to keep a secret and not to blab everything to the public and to our opponents when he comes up with something about national security that ought to be kept quiet. I think that’s good. You can’t go yakking about everything that you’re interested in, you have to keep your counsel.”
