Donald Trump recently won the endorsements from 120 retired admirals and generals who praised his support of the military and declared he had “the temperament to be commander in chief” and effectively deal with a dangerous world.
“Our foreign policy must be guided by the principle of peace through strength, and to do this we must commit to strengthening our military so that it remains the finest fighting force on the planet,” the GOP nominee said in response earlier this week.
The impressive Trump army just got a little bigger. Fourteen Medal of Honor recipients have also endorsed Mr. Trump; they hail from all four branches of the military, and served in World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the War on Terror.
“These soldiers are the personification of courage under fire; they are the best of us all,” Mr. Trump said. “Their honorable service to our country is an inspiration to every one of us. It is a reminder that America has been the world’s most indispensable nation because of the great character of our people.”
The candidate has also named James Woolsey, who was director of the CIA during the Clinton administration, as a senior adviser.
“I have been a ‘Scoop Jackson,’ ‘Joe Lieberman,’ Democrat all of my adult life, ” Mr. Woolsey said. “I am pleased to be asked to participate with others I respect in advising GOP candidate Donald J. Trump on the urgent need to reinvest in and modernize our military in order to confront the challenges of the 21st century.”
