Richard Armitage, who held top national security positions in the administrations of former Presidents George W. Bush and Ronald Reagan, said he would vote for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton over her likely Republican rival, Donald Trump.
"If Donald Trump is the nominee, I would vote for Hillary Clinton," Armitage, who served as a deputy secretary of State under Bush and as an assistant secretary of Defense under Reagan, told
Politico on Thursday.
"He doesn't appear to be a Republican. He doesn't appear to want to learn about the issues. So I'm going to vote for Mrs. Clinton."
Clinton hit Trump earlier this month on national security, saying his ideas would put America in greater danger and inspire more terrorist attacks.
"A ban on Muslims would not have stopped this attack," Clinton added on Wednesday, referring to the mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla. over the weekend.
"Neither would a wall. I don't know how one builds a wall to keep the internet out," she said. "Not one of Donald Trump's reckless ideas would have saved a single life in Orlando."

If he prefers Hillary one has to wonder. Alzheimer’s?
Good, another RINO purged.
Wow, big surprise.
Piece of sh!t traitor.
On the link-up with Saudi Arabia scale....isn’t Armitage around a ‘8’ on a one to ten scale? That would indicate to me that his opinion is pretty much bought and of no real use.
So the obvious response is to vote for a Democrat.
It’s amazing watching the big government crony elites masquerading as republicans out themselves.

The spelling in the hacked sign is better than that on the news chyron.
Hey Armitage, did you apologize to Scooter Libby, or compensate him for the time in prison he did for you?
Heavyweight? More like overaged has-been ...
Bugger off, Dick. I can understand not liking Trump. To prefer Hildebeeste, though, indicates raving madness or demonic evil.
Ah, good to see another blowhard outing himself.
Just a DC insider, trying to go with the winner. A Good Boy, willing to live on his knees.
NeoConvict supporting the number one convict in the country. One big happy cartel.
I can't say I'm the least bit surprised that he endorsed Crooked Hillary. Birds of a feather flock together.
Powell too. Though I don’t think he (Powell) will have the guts to tell it openly.
He’s so concerned about Trump’s non-Republicanism that he’s going to vote for a rabid progressive? WTF is wrong with these people?
