Seventy-five career diplomats said in a letter Thursday that they will never vote for Donald Trump, claiming he has “insulted” America’s allies and displayed a level of ignorance that could embolden our enemies. “None of us will vote for Donald J. Trump,” declared the signatories, all of whom simultaneously endorsed the Democratic presidential ticket. “Very simply, this election is different from any election we can recall. One of the candidates — Donald J. Trump — is entirely unqualified to to serve as president and commander in chief.” Those behind the letter — including Susan Burk, former special representative of President Obama for Nuclear Nonproliferation; James Cunningham, former U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, Israel and the United Nations; Jeffrey Davidow, former U.S. ambassador to Mexico; and Thomas Pickering, former undersecretary of state for Political Affairs and U.S. ambassador to Russia, India, Israel and the United Nations — described Trump as “ignorant of the complex nature of the challenges facing our country” and uninterested “in being educated.”
