On Tuesday, Aug. 9, Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric interviews Kori Schake, former White House director for defense strategy at the National Security Council, about why she and dozens of other prominent Republican national security officials signed a letter opposing the Republican nominee Donald Trump. Other well-known Republicans who signed the letter include Michael V. Hayden, a former director of both the CIA and the National Security Agency, and Tom Ridge and Michael Chertoff, both former secretaries of homeland security. The letter argues that Trump “would be the most reckless president in American history” and states that “none of us will vote” for Trump.
Schake gave Couric three reasons why she signed a letter along with 49 other foreign policy experts to sign a letter condemning Donald Trump. Schake, who served under President George W. Bush and was an adviser to the McCain-Palin campaign, one of her major concerns was Mr. Trump’s “erratic” behavior.
Schake told Couric that she was disappointed when Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) endorsed Trump for president.
Additionally, Schake told Couric that she was concerned about Trump’s “impulses” when it came to nuclear weapons.
Finally, Schake told Couric, that she expects former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to speak out at some point about the 2016 election.
