Hayden: Trump’s ‘Troubling’ Statements ‘Show a Lack of Understanding’

Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” former director of the NSA and CIA Gen. Michael Hayden said Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s foreign policy statements “shows a lack of understanding.”

Host Joe Scarborough asked, “From everything you’ve seen from Donald Trump, the front runner right now in all the States but Iowa, do you think Donald Trump has qualified to be the next commander-in-chief?”

Hayden said, “I don’t know Mr. Trump personally. I am troubled by a whole series of his statements. It shows a lack of understanding, maybe a certain shooting from the hip that would make me uncomfortable for that to continue if he were president.”
