Lieutenant Colonial Ralph Peters, who is also a Fox News strategic analyst, revealed why he is voting for Hillary Clinton not Donald Trump even though he thinks she has committed criminal acts.
â€œI donâ€™t want Moscowâ€™s man in the White Houseâ€¦ This is about the future of our country, it is about our security and hereâ€™s a guy who apologizes for everything Vladimir Putin does and makes crazy remarks about NATO, about Syria, about nukes, about the Mosul offensive,â€ he said during an interview with the FOX Business Networkâ€™s Stuart Varney.
While he is not a fan of Hillary either, he prefers her approach to foreign policy.
â€œHillary Clintonâ€™s domestic policies repel me, she is awful, but she is safer for this countryâ€™s security than Donald Trump and I think Vladimir Putin has a deep hold on Trump and we should all be much more alarmed than we are,â€ he said.
As for trade policy, Petersâ€™ has a problem with what Trump is proposing. â€œYou want a global recession? Do you want to see your portfolio really tank? Sure, just walk away from all our trade deals,â€ he said.
Petersâ€™ is also suspect of Trumpâ€™s plan to jump start the U.S. economy.
â€œWhere is the plan? Show me the plan, of course we want growthâ€¦ He is lying to the American people, he is lying to blue collar workers and that is the back ground I come from. The village blacksmith shop is not coming back. People need skills for the jobs of the future and this cult of Trump is going to lead a lot of places,â€ he said.
