Trump: The oldest man who never grew up

A year ago, in August 2015, this column called “The Donald” the Democrats’ Trump card. It is hard to imagine any other Republican candidate who could rescue a thoroughly discredited Hillary Clinton from a devastating defeat in this year’s election.
Now 50 prominent Republicans with foreign policy and national security experience have taken the unprecedented step of publicly and collectively announcing that they cannot vote for Donald Trump because they believe that he would be “the most reckless president in American history.”
Why? Not only because he has “demonstrated repeatedly that “he has little understanding” of the nation’s “vital national interests” but because “Mr. Trump has shown no interest in educating himself.”
Indeed, Donald Trump has shown little real interest in anything besides Donald Trump.
His response to these criticisms has been completely predictable. Trump has not even tried to answer the charges or to assure the American people on something as important as their survival and the survival of this nation. Instead, there is the standard Trump tactic of launching unsubstantiated charges against his critics.
Even if all his charges against his critics were 100 percent true, that is no assurance to the American people on the vital issues they raised – and for which there are innumerable examples of Trump’s own words and deeds to make people worry about what he would do in the White House.
