Former director of the CIA under former President George W. Bush who also served as director of the National Security Agency, Retired General Michael Hayden, on Tuesday night endorsed Joe Biden, warning that “if there’s another term for President trump, I don’t know what happens to America.”
“I’m supporting Joe Biden. Biden is a good man. Donald Trump is not,” Hayden said on The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC.
Hayden, who spent 40 years in the military, said he was worried about the damage Trump has done to America’s alliances around the world. adding that he felt it was important to speak out because the truth is “really important.”
Hayden who had a stroke in 2018 and suffers from aphasia said Trump “doesn’t care about facts. President Trump doesn’t care about the truth.”
Hayden added that Trump also “doesn’t listen to his experts. The FBI says white nationalism is a real problem and the FBI wants to do something about it, but the president doesn’t want to talk about that. He doesn’t keep the country safe. It’s unbelievable.”
