Retired Military Leaders Decry Trump Over Attitude Toward Women

Posted October 18, 2016 at 3:43pm

The Wall Street Journal reports that “more than 50 retired general and flag officers have signed a letter denouncing Republican Donald Trump’s candidacy to be commander in chief, saying he is unfit because of his attitudes toward women and sexual assault.”

“A chief concern is that his election could imperil progress in long-running efforts to stem the problem of sexual assault in the U.S. military.”

“’This behavior renders him utterly unworthy of being commander in chief and president,’ said the open letter signed by 55 general and flag officers and provided to The Wall Street Journal. ‘If given such power, Donald Trump would create a command climate intolerant of women and incompatible with a trained, ready and honorable military.'”
