A new letter bearing the names of 235 retired U.S. military leaders
supports President Trump in what is described as arguably "the most
important election since our country was founded."
Retired Army and Air Force generals and Navy admirals were among those
who signed the letter, which was released by the Trump campaign Monday.
The former leaders warned against the dangers currently facing the
nation, and claimed that President Trump is better equipped to handle
them than his Democratic opponent.
"As senior leaders of America's military, we took an oath to defend the
United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic," the letter says.
"At present, our country is now confronted with enemies here and
abroad, as well as a once-in-a-century pandemic. As retired military
officers, we believe that Donald J. Trump has been tested as few other
presidents have and is the proven leader to confront these dangers."
The letter warns that those dangers include the growing acceptance of
radical leftist ideology.
"With the Democratic Party welcoming to socialists and Marxists, our
historic way of life is at stake," it says.
