Read full text below of 235 Retired Military Leaders' letter publicly endorsing President Trump

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Texas Insider Report) — “As senior leaders of America’s military, we took an oath to defend the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic. At present, our country is now confronted with enemies here and abroad, as well as a once in a century pandemic,” said 235 Retired Senior Military leaders in a joint letter released Monday, Aug. 14th endorsing President Donald Trump for re-election.
 
"As president, he will continue to secure our borders, defeat our adversaries, and restore law and order domestically."

The letter also takes aim at the Democrat's nominee, Joe Biden, criticizing him and former President Barack Obama for harming military strength through “a series of ill-considered and debilitating budget cuts” during their administration.

Signed by eight 4-Star and 42  3-Star Generals or Admirals, the letter calls the 2020 Presidential Election the most important since the United States’ inception.
 
“The 2020 election affords the American people an urgently needed opportunity to affirm their devotion to the Constitution of the United States and to the American way of life.

"As retired military officers, we believe that Donald J. Trump has been tested as few other presidents have, and is the proven leader to confront these dangers,” the endorsers said in their letter.

It names off list of crucial or imminent threats – such as Socialism and Marxism or defense spending cuts – as some of the most detrimental issues confronting Americans’ security and way of life.
 
“The Democrats’ opposition to border security, their pledge to return to the disastrous Iran nuclear deal, their antagonism towards the police and planned cuts to military spending will leave the United States more vulnerable to foreign enemies,” read the letter.

“The proposed defense cuts by the Democrats will, in our professional judgment, create a potentially perilous situation for the United States during a time of great external and internal threats to our Nation,” the letter states.

 
“For these reasons, we support Donald Trump’s re-election. We believe that President Donald Trump is committed to a strong America. As president, he will continue to secure our borders, defeat our adversaries, and restore law and order domestically,” the letter says. “We urge our fellow Americans to join us in supporting the re-election of Donald Trump for President.”

Open Letter from Senior Military Leaders

The 2020 election affords the American people an urgently needed opportunity to affirm their devotion to the Constitution of the United States and to the American way of life. As senior leaders of America’s military, we took an oath to defend the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic. At present, our country is now confronted with enemies here and abroad, as well as a once in a century pandemic. As retired military officers, we believe that Donald J. Trump has been tested as few other presidents have and is the proven leader to confront these dangers.

It can be argued that this is the most important election since our country was founded. With the Democratic Party welcoming to socialists and Marxists, our historic way of life is at stake.

During the Obama/Biden administration, America’s armed forces were subjected to a series of ill-considered and debilitating budget cuts. The Democrats have once again pledged to cut defense spending, undermining our military strength.

The Democrats’ opposition to border security, their pledge to return to the disastrous Iran nuclear deal, their antagonism towards the police and planned cuts to military spending will leave the United States more vulnerable to foreign enemies.

President Trump’s resolute stands have deterred our enemies from aggression against us and our allies. The proposed defense cuts by the Democrats will, in our professional judgment, create a potentially perilous situation for the United States during a time of great external and internal threats to our Nation.

For these reasons, we support Donald Trump’s re-election. We believe that President Donald Trump is committed to a strong America. As president, he will continue to secure our borders, defeat our adversaries, and restore law and order domestically.

We urge our fellow Americans to join us in supporting the re-election of Donald Trump for President.
