Former US Defense Secretary Robert Gates decided to publicly attack Donald Trump who responded on Twitter earlier Saturday morning. Gates feels Trump is unqualified and unfit to be commander-in-chief. Gates has also worked “alongside” Hillary Clinton. Although he had strong words for her, he didn’t use this type of language so with that said, I take his opinion with a grain of salt.
I never met former Defense Secretary Robert Gates. He knows nothing about me. But look at the results under his guidance – a total disaster!

Anyone thinking Trump wasn’t going to respond when called out is dumber than a rock.
With all due respect to Mr. Robert Gates, Donald Trump at least has strong dedicated people advising him, that love this country and want what is best for America. That’s very important, in my opinion, when dealing with an international crisis.
Trump will listen to his advisers, and will not let others do his work, he is the man with the vision to build and change, but he doesn’t work the construction, so he will listen to the wisdom of others.
From Yahoo News:
Former US defense secretary Robert Gates issued a sharp critique of both presidential candidates in the Wall Street Journal, but blasted Donald Trump as being “unqualified and unfit to be commander-in-chief.”
Gates – a Republican who was Pentagon chief under Republican George W. Bush and Democrat Barack Obama – has worked with eight presidents and is among the most widely respected US voices on national security matters.
“I believe Mr. Trump is beyond repair. He is stubbornly uninformed” and “temperamentally unsuited to lead our men and women in uniform,” Gates wrote in an op-ed piece posted late Friday on the Journal’s website. “He is unqualified and unfit to be commander-in-chief.”
Gates worked closely with Hillary Clinton when she was secretary of state, and did not hold back on his criticism of her tenure.
A former CIA director, Gates said Clinton’s failure to predict the chaos that would follow Western intervention in Libya had raised credibility questions, as had her shifting position on the Iraq war.
Gates assailed Clinton’s opposition to a pending Asian trade agreement she once supported, said she had been vague on dealing with Vladimir Putin’s Russia, said she offered few specifics about North Korea, and had no clear strategy toward “a Middle East in flames.”
But on credibility, Gates added, “Trump is in a league of his own.”
Trump has been the boss for his business and knows how to talk to people and negotiate for the American people. As President, he will have advisors and experts to prep him on dealing with various countries. Hopefully, they will be loyal to him unlike others, I won’t mention.
Mr. Gates, we thank you for your service to this nation. Your opinion has been heard but accept that I don’t value it. Trump will be hundreds of times better for this country and the world. He has common sense and is not going to sell out the USA.
