Trump Lands Endorsement From Dozens Of Retired Military Officials

While they are important in any presidential election cycle, the endorsement of a specific candidate by members of the military are viewed as particularly important in this year’s race. According to the New York Times, Republican candidate Donald Trump has just landed the endorsement of dozens of retired military figures, including a number of generals and admirals.

A letter in support of Trump has been released that carries the signature of 88 retired military figures, which retired Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn refers to as “national security professionals for Trump.”

“As retired senior leaders of America’s military, we believe that such a change can only be made by someone who has not been deeply involved with, and substantially responsible for, the hollowing out of our military and the burgeoning threats facing our country around the world,” the letter reads in part.

The letter goes on to explain that they feel it’s time for some serious changes in our nation’s approach to national security, and that has landed them firmly in the corner of Trump for the upcoming election.

“For this reason, we support Donald Trump’s candidacy to be our next commander in chief,” the retired military figures wrote.
