Colin Powell Calls Trump A “National Disgrace” In Personal Emails

https://www.buzzfeed.com/andrewkaczynski/colin-powell-calls-trump-national-disgrace-in-personal-email?utm_term=.vyjZjgzrgp#.bubOePNEPd
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell, a retired four-star general who served under three Republican presidents, slammed GOP nominee Donald Trump as a “a national disgrace” and an “international pariah,” according to his personal emails seen by BuzzFeed News.

The remarks came in a June 17, 2016, email to Emily Miller, a journalist who was once Powell’s aide. In that same email Powell also said Trump “is in the process of destroying himself, no need for Dems to attack him. [Speaker of the House] Paul Ryan is calibrating his position again.”


And in an Aug. 21 email from Powell to Miller, he blasted Trump for embarking on a “racist” movement that believes President Obama was not born in the US.


So how bad do you think the Trump response going to be?

3. Powell will always regret making the wmd case for W but

 

I always thought he was a stand-up guy, nonetheless. I'm sure he's not the only former SoS who thinks Trump is a national disgrace.
