Ralph Peters: Clinton is a Safer Bet Than Trump

Fox News strategic analyst Lt. Col. Ralph Peters said when it comes to foreign policy he prefers Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.

“I’m much more alarmed and concerned about Donald Trump’s adoration of Vladimir Putin and Putin’s… intent to do all he can to help Trump get elected,” he told the FOX Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo.

Peters said while the military is divided, the people close to him “fear Trump” deeply.

“I detest Hillary Clinton, I find her despicable. But I still think she’s a safer bet for President than Donald Trump. His attacks on NATO, crazy statements on Aleppo and Syria about Iran, his insistence that he knows more about ISIS than the generals… I just can’t swallow that,” he said.

He added, “I’m not getting on anyone’s bandwagon but when asked a question by God… I will give the American people my honest view… On foreign policy and national security Hillary Clinton is clearly preferable to the irresponsible and madcap Donald Trump.”
