A retired four-star Army general claimed on Friday that Donald Trump is a “serious threat to US national security.”
Retired Gen. Barry McCaffrey took to Twitter on Friday to raise concern about the danger of having Trump as president. He claimed Trump is a national threat because he “is refusing to protect vital US interests from active Russian attacks.”
“It is apparent that he is for some unknown reason under the sway of Mr. Putin,” he added.
Reluctantly I have concluded that President Trump is a serious threat to US national security. He is refusing to protect vital US interests from active Russian attacks. It is apparent that he is for some unknown reason under the sway of Mr Putin.

Trump has constantly been criticized for his response to Russia’s interference in the U.S. presidential election.
Trump claimed that the investigation into Russian meddling was a “witch hunt.”
