Republican security experts rail against Trump
Aug.9, Washington: Some 50 Republican national security experts signed an open letter warning presidental nominee Donald Trump "would be the most reckless president" in US history.
The group, which includes the former CIA director Michael Hayden, said Mr Trump "lacks the character, values and experience" to be president. Many of the signatories had declined to sign a similar note in March.
In response, Trump said they were part of a "failed Washington elite" looking to hold on to power.
The open letter comes after a number of high-profile Republicans stepped forward to disown the property tycoon, reports said.
Trump has broken with years of Republican foreign policy on a number of occasions.
The Republican candidate has questioned whether the US should honour its commitments to Nato, endorsed the use of torture and suggested that South Korea and Japan should arm themselves with nuclear weapons, BBC reported.
