‘Great danger’: Ex CIA boss warns Trump’s loose talk with North Korea could prove catastrophic

Published

The former director of the CIA and the NSA said on Monday that President Donald Trump’s “tough but imprecise” talk on the issue of North Korea is leading to an escalation that’s putting people in “great danger.”

Retired Gen. Michael Hayden appeared on CNN’s “New Day” on Monday and told anchor Alisyn Camerota that Defense Secretary James Mattis is speaking the language of diplomacy and setting clear limits on what the U.S. will and won’t do. However, Trump is complicating matters with his back-and-forth bluster toward North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un.

Mattis made “a very tough, but a very precise statement,” Hayden said. “Which is a little bit different than some of the things the president has been allowing himself to say, Alisyn, which have been very tough, but very imprecise, and that could lead to great danger.”

Trump preparing to question legitimacy of results if he loses 2020 election: Michigan lieutenant governor

Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist, D-Mich., has accused President Donald Trump of sowing doubt about November's election months before voting even begins in an attempt to question the "legitimacy of an election that he is looking to lose."

Gilchrist criticized Trump for pushing debunked conspiracy theories about voting by mail after the state sent absentee ballot applications to every registered voter amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"I think that the president wants to set us up so that there can be a conversation about the legitimacy of an election that he is looking to lose," Gilchrist told MSNBC over the weekend.
