GAME CHANGER: Trump Just Got Great News From The Military


Donald Trump just got some great news from America’s military leaders.

On the heels of what appears to be a Donald Trump surge in the polls, now comes this news: Trump has received the endorsement from 88 current and former military leaders – all of them generals or admirals.


The signatories come from all branches of military service and are a testament to the military’s support of Donald Trump and opposition to a President Hillary Clinton.

Here’s the full text of the letter to the American people, along with all the officers who signed it:

The 2016 election affords the American people an urgently needed opportunity to make a long-overdue course correction in our national security posture and policy. 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. For this reason, we support Donald Trump’s candidacy to be our next Commander-in-Chief.

For the past eight years, America’s armed forces have been subjected to a series of ill-considered and debilitating budget cuts, policy choices and combat operations that have left the superb men and women in uniform less capable of performing their vital missions in the future than we require them to be.

Simultaneously, enemies of this country have been emboldened, sensing weakness and irresolution in Washington and opportunities for aggression at our expense and that of other freedom-loving nations.

In our professional judgment, the combined effect is potentially extremely perilous. That is especially the case if our government persists in the practices that have brought us to this present pass.

For this reason, we support Donald Trump and his commitment to rebuild our military, to secure our borders, to defeat our Islamic supremacist adversaries and restore law and order domestically. We urge our fellow Americans to do the same.

These are the officers who signed off on the endorsement.
