Donald Rumsfeld is a former two-time Secretary of Defense (for President Ford and Bush), and has announced that conservative businessman and GOP presidential nominee is “absolutely right” about Islamic terrorism.
Hillary Clinton is unacceptable to anyone who cares about America’s national defense, which is why Rumsfeld is enthuastically supporting Trump for the White House in 2016!
This is vastly different from the position taken by many Bush White House insiders… This is incredible:
Former Defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld said he’s “clearly going to vote” for Donald Trump for president, calling Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton, “unacceptable.”
“The way I think of it is this,” Rumsfeld said Wednesday night on Fox News Channel’s On the Record with Greta Van Susteren. “On the Democrats’ side, we have a known known. On the Republican side, we have a recent entry, who’s a known unknown.”
That line, of course, was a play on a famous series of statements uttered at a Pentagon briefing in February 2002 in response to a question about whether there was evidence Iraq had tried to supply terrorists with weapons of mass destruction.
“There are known knowns; there are things we know we know,” Rumsfeld said then. “We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say, we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns — the ones we don’t know we don’t know.”
Trump, apparently, falls into the second category, according to Rumsfeld.
Rumsfeld, who served as Defense secretary for both Presidents George W. Bush and Gerald Ford, went on to cite the reasons he found Clinton “unacceptable” for president, including her handling of the Benghazi attack in September 2012 and her use of a private email server to handle government information while serving as secretary of State.

Rumsfeld appreciates Trump’s tough talk about ISIS, as the terror network is planning on many more attacks on American soil. It takes drastic action, and powerful military intervention, to stop these deadly jihadists before they strike again, especially after the deaths in Orlando, Florida.
Thank you to Donald Rumsfeld for the endorsement. Very much appreciated. Clinton’s conduct has been “disqualifying.”
