Hillary Clinton Tops Trump’s 88 With a List of 110 Generals and Admirals Backing Her

The Clinton campaign released a statement that “Earlier in the week, 95 retired generals and admirals endorsed Clinton,” and that “An additional 15 retired generals and admirals” are endorsing her tomorrow.

It was explained by Hillary for America that,

“Clinton is getting the backing of senior military service members and former officials with command and management experience because of her proven record of diplomacy and steady leadership on the world stage.”

Among the endorsements:

Major General (ret.) Peter Cooke, USAF – “Anytime anyone states says that generals are rubbish or an individual is not a hero because he or she was captured I find it appalling. I am a citizen soldier with 39 years of military experience. Donald Trump has a lack of knowledge on everything from force structure to NATO to our alliances and partnerships. I’m proud to support Secretary Clinton.”​

Major General (ret.) John Phillips, USAF – “Secretary Clinton has demonstrated the ability to conduct foreign affairs and achieve the objectives and goals of the United States. She has an incredible ability to engage with the international community and to build new partnerships and strengthen existing ones with our allies. I want a president with the ability to focus on the issues at hand that are the most important for the American people and that person is Hillary Clinton.”

A full list of the new endorsements can be found below. The previous list of 95 endorsements can be found here.

  • Edwin Leland, Lieutenant General, USA (ret)
  • Norman Seip, Lieutenant General, USAF (ret)
  • Peter Cooke, Major General, USAR (ret)
  • Randy Manner, Major General, USA (ret)
  • John Phillips, Major General, USAF (ret)
  • Christopher Cole, Rear Admiral, USN (ret)
  • Joe Sestak, Rear Admiral, USN (ret)
  • Roosevelt Barfield, Brigadier General, USA (ret)
  • LeAnne Burch, Brigadier General, USAR (ret)
  • Tom King, Brigadier General, USA-NG (ret)
  • Ronald Rokosz, Brigadier General, USA (ret)
  • John Schuster, Brigadier General, USAR (ret)
  • Paul Gregory Smith, Brigadier General, USA-NG (ret)
  • George Walls, Brigadier General, USMC (ret)
  • Gretchen Herbert, Rear Admiral, USN (ret)

Donald Trump claims he has a secret plan to defeat ISIS; he claims he knows more than our generals, and that our generals are rubbish. Trump released his list of 88 military endorsements to further that claim, and to further the illusion that our former generals and admirals support him.

Hillary Clinton has destroyed that illusion with her own growing list of endorsements, and points out that, in fact, “According to recent media reports, Trump has received more than 400 fewer endorsements than Mitt Romney received – 88 to Romney’s 500.”

The calculus of this election is unforgiving: not only does Donald Trump not have the best people; he doesn’t have as many.
