The retired generals, including former US Army General Burwell Bell and US Air Force General Alfred Hansen, argued that Trump is committed to rebuild the US military, secure the country’s borders and defeat “Islamic supremacist adversaries.”

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is the best candidate to become the US commander-in-chief and change the country’s security posture, 88 retired generals said in an open letter on Tuesday.

“The 2016 election affords the American people an urgently needed opportunity to make a long-overdue course correction in our national security posture and policy,” the leaders stated. “For this reason, we support Donald Trump’s candidacy to be our next Commander-in-Chief.”

The retired generals, including former US Army General Burwell Bell and US Air Force General Alfred Hansen, argued that Trump is committed to rebuild the US military, secure the country’s borders and defeat “Islamic supremacist adversaries.”

Trump responded that it was a “great honor” to receive the military leaders’ endorsement.

“Under my administration, we will end the weak foreign policy of the last eight years, rebuild our military, give our troops clear rules of engagement and take care of our veterans when they come home,” Trump stated.

In July, four-star retired Marine Corps General John Allen, who used to oversee NATO troops in Afghanistan, endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
