Trump’s Response To 50 Republican National Security Officials: ‘They Don’t Feel Relevant’

Trump's Response To National Security Officials

Donald Trump’s response to the 50 Republican national security officials who signed a letter declaring him a risk to the country’s security was to claim they were bitter about not being involved with his campaign.

The letter, signed by top profiles in national security including Michael Hayden, former director of the C.I.A., stated that Trump “lacks the character, values and experience” to lead the country. It also asserted Trump would end up being “the most reckless president in American history.” The letter promised that none of the signatories would be voting for Trump.

Trump hit back during an interview on Fox Business Tuesday morning, claiming that the officials were bitter at not being invited to the Trump campaign.

“[…] I wasn’t using any of them and they would have loved to have been involved with the campaign,” Trump said.

He also attempted to blame the group of signatories for a number of nonspecific problems: “Look where the country is now on national policy. Look what we are in defense. Look where we are. Look at the mess we are in. Whether it’s the Middle East or anyone else.”

“Look at the terrible job they’ve done,” he continued. “I hadn’t planned on using any of these people.”

The signatories joined a growing list of Republicans refusing to support Trump, including, most recently, Sen. Susan Collins of Maine.

Trump’s response concluded by claiming the letter was a push for publicity for the signatories: “They don’t feel relevant because of that and they form a group and they go out and try to get some publicity for themselves and they hope that somebody else other than Trump wins because that way they can get a job.”

    I think those standing behind Trump are the ones hoping to land a job with Trump, that’s why they wag their tail, and lick Trumps face.

      Heeeewwwwww…. what a graphic description of something repulsive… but you might be so right.

      Yes, many of those supporting Trump are nothing more than puppy dogs!! Looking for whatever handout they can get (Christie was one of those).

          ooh Max you hold the bible of conspiracies, the book to being brain washed. Look it worked on you. You are the only idiot on this thread.

            What is your excuse? Have you been inflicted with trumpoid fever. I have a prescription for you: Stop watching Fox, Hannity and all those Utube conspiracies. Your life will seem normal after about three weeks of being clean.

          3. Max August 10, 2016

            I don’t need an excuse, I live in the real World where the Clinton crime family the Bush crime family and hundreds if not thousands of other globalist CRIMINALS get away with unspeakable crimes against the very people that support them, It’s not your fault though you have been programed since birth to be unthinking dupes, Its up to the few of us that can still think to save your DumbAsses……….

          4. jmprint August 10, 2016

            When you can come up with a conviction on Hiliiary you can call her her a criminal, but until then she is no different then you. Do you like being called a criminal without convictions? Innuendos and conspiracies do not count. Trump currently has THREE court case pending for FRAUD, RACKETEERING AND RAPE. Those are at least three reasons for calling him three different names. I’m not programmed, I follow facts. Fact is trump is a fraud, a liar and a conman. Looks like you’ve been TRUMPED.

          5. Max August 10, 2016

            Hillary’s been gaming the system for decades, And she’s been supported by lost delusional FOOL’s like you.. She is CFR and part of a Global crime cabal, not to mention the Democrat party Mob… Convictions are coming soon, what is it 5 or 6 more murders just in the past month all traceable to the Clintons, Arkancide is fast becoming Demecide…

          6. jmprint August 11, 2016

            She has been in politics for a long time, and has worked for the betterment of this world. She has had to put up with BS like yours since day one. WIthout facts and actual charges you are just pumping up the volume on conspiracies.

            Fact is trump is a fraud, a liar and a conman. Looks like you’ve been TRUMPED.

          7. Max August 11, 2016

            BS.. You just ignore the facts..
            Most liberals suffer from head inAss syndrome..
            You celebrate corruption, you see the biggest most corrupt above the LawAssholes as your Hero’s ..

            I can post dozens of these and then there’s the New one Hillary’s America go see it so you can say its just the vast Right Wing conspiracy picking on your innocent little public servant …..

            What part of NOT understanding, that I have seen all those video. Roger Stones and Alex Jones are not credible at ALL.
            Like I said before: “When you can come up with a conviction on Hiliiary you can call her her a criminal” Until then you elect to be brained washed go for it.

          9. Max August 11, 2016

            Yeah, but CNN is? You people are fcked up, big time..

            One may hear something, one never here’s anything. When attempting to change minds it is best if you do not start out attacking them. Once you have called them demeaning names and slandered their intelligence, it is a very good idea to pay close attention to spelling, grammar and word choice, just saying….

          11. Max August 11, 2016

            spelling, grammar? Ha ha Liberals, So predictable..
            Thanks for the advice, I’ll try to do better next time..
            Can’t you see I’m just having a little fun with the people who have ruined this country, its too late now so we might as well have a little fun, Gallows humor don’t ya know.. Who ever gets the presidency is screwed, we the people are screwed, the USA is over, we are now a corrupt banana republic that uses all its agencies to further political agendas, and as long as its your side doing it WELL it’s just fine and its not even really happening.. here no EVIL, see no EVIL, speak no EVIL……

            1984 is here BIG TIME.. Thanks to you fcking IDIOTS..

          12. Joan August 11, 2016

            Don’t bother on my account, you few. Really, like I would trust someone who treats http//stateofthenation2012 as though it were the bible. No reason for you or any of the other ” few” ( thank goodness it is just a few) to miss any medical or psychological appointments. My ass which you find dumb but others have found shapely will be just fine without you.

          13. Max August 11, 2016

            I’m sure many have enjoyed your ass, And in no way did I treat a single “state of the nation” article as the Bible, Typical liberal overreaction and obfuscation..

          14. Joan August 11, 2016

            Oohs big words, I am cowered. So I have over acted – but not the guy who posts a link to the ” not bible” in multiple posts. My poor idiot, unenlighted ass just can not understand how my snark could be equated with rendering your post obscur, confusing, muddled blurred or any other synonyms for obfuscate. Commenters as advanced, knowledgeable and intelligent as yourself obviously do not need my help to render your post muddled murky or obfuscated.

          15. Max August 11, 2016

            Obscure, you forgot the E dumbAss, See I can do it too.. Obscure? I think not .. A quick search of Clinton scandals produces over 20 million results, apparently it’s only obscure if you keep your head up your shapely ASS most of the time…

          16. Joan August 13, 2016

            Your delusional, with excellent spelling

          17. Max August 13, 2016

            I guess coming from a insane person I can consider that a complement, Thank you very much..

            But really I am terrible at spelling, Even in my advanced years, and many many decades of writing letters papers proposals etc etc I still rely heavily on spell checkers, that is these days I rely on spell checkers, in the old days if I had to leave a note at work or write a letter papers proposals etc etc I would use phone books dictionaries or even the news paper anything lying around with writing in some kinda alphabetical order as a spelling crutch, But every Liberal I have ever argued with acts like every typo or misspelled word is a sure sign of ignorance and or stupidity, Something I have always taken issue with..

            I like what Thomas Jefferson said

            “I have nothing but contempt for anyone who can spell a word only one way.”
            Variations:
            #1
            “You should never trust a man who has only one way to spell a word.”
            #2
            “Pity the man who can spell a word only one way.”

            #3
            “I never met a man so narrow that he can spell a word in only one way.”

          18. Max August 11, 2016

            Liberals on lying spinning and obfuscation..
            I think this clip says it all…
            I know another obscure news source, I could of got it off of youtube but they are all too long and we all know how short a liberals attention span is..
            So here’s a nice short to the point clip…

    LOL. Donnie you little liar. You have told some pretty funny lies but this one is hilarious. You can’t seriously believe that these people fear having you as their next president because “…..I wasn’t using any of them and they would have loved to have been involved in the campaign.” You nut Donnie. You really are delusional aren’t you.

    Poor Donnie. When he finally passes on, they should donate his cranium (I refuse to say brain) to science and study it for abnormalities.

    So, the Trumpeter’s intention is to run around the white house naked telling everybody, “YOU’RE FIRED!!” .. Very good, they deserve it, but… Who will he replace them with? ‘Top Men’..? Top men? Are there still such humpers in politics or is he referring to his 1% corporate b’ness buddies? Hitler did a similar thing in his time.. pathetic butt sniffers who obeyed his every wish and why not? By proof at their trial they thought they had an out as they’re common excuse was, “I was just following orders” Yes, but with gusto and what we may get in Trumps favor may just turn out worse than what we have now. Who could actually be worse leaders than our current mouth breathers? The Trumpster won’t tell.

    So much for his earliest lie–that he’d consult experts.

    If people are not afraid every time Donald opens his mouth, something is seriously wrong with our society. Bigotry, hate racism and any sh!+ he can muster he throws out and hope it sticks. He is becoming more frightening every time he opens his mouth. Pay attention people.
