Republicans for Clinton: Why we oppose Trump

Actually, few, if any, anti-Trump Republicans oppose him because they think he can’t win. We are motivated, in large part, by the fact that if Trump has a 1 in 30 chance of being president, we are not comfortable with those odds. But he is not running as a fringe third party. He is on the Republican ticket and his chances are far better than 1 in 30.

More to the point, we oppose him because, for example, “he lacks the character, values, and experience to be president” and that he “would be the most reckless president in American history.” Those are comments from a letter signed by 50 national security experts who served in Republican administrations, including two former Homeland Security secretaries, two former deputy secretaries of State, a former CIA director, and so on.

On trade: Sure, I’m troubled by Trump’s protectionism. So is Steve Moore. A year ago, he and Larry Kudlow wrote a piece in the National Review, criticizing what they call “Trump’s Fortress America Platform,” finding the candidate’s trade policies similar to those of Herbert Hoover, and positing that the “recent panic in world financial markets is in part a result of the Trump assault on free trade.”
