There has been the circulating news of Colin Powell calling Donald Trump “a national disgrace and an international pariah” in his personal emails and also saying he resented Clinton’s dragging him into her email problems. “I have told Hilleary’s [sic] minions repeatedly that they are making a mistake trying to drag me in, yet they still try,” he wrote in May to former top Bill Clinton adviser Vernon Jordan. “The media isn’t fooled and she is getting crucified. The differences are profound and they know it.”
He also said”everything [she] touches she kind of screws up with hubris.” And just when we thought that was all and that it was over, all the messages were released by the hacker.
On the issue of Trump and the ‘racist’ birthers which publicly questioned whether President Obama was born in the United States, Powell said, “Yup, the whole birther movement was racist.” “That’s what the 99% believe. When Trump couldn’t keep that up he said he also wanted to see if the certificate noted that he was a Muslim,” he said in his email to journalists and former aide Emily Miller on Aug. 21.
Powell added: “As I have said before, ‘What if he was?’ Muslims are born as Americans every day.”
According to the Intercept, in August 2015 Powell went further to say : Trump “appeals to the worst angels of the GOP nature and poor white folks.
Colin Powell seems to have a lot to say about Trump as the messages just keep going on about Trump.
Powell mocks Trump’s efforts in recent weeks to reach out to African Americans, in another email to Miller on Aug. 21, saying Trump takes them “for idiots.”
“He is at 1% black voters and will drop. He takes us for idiots,” Powell writes. “He can never overcome what he tried to do to Obama with his search for the birth certificate hoping to force Obama out of the Presidency.”
Powell also blames the media for the rise of Trump: “It is time to start ignoring him. You guys are playing his game, you are his oxygen,” he wrote to CNN’s Fareed Zakaria in December. “He outraged us again today with his comments on Paris no-go for police districts. I will watch and pick the timing, not respond to the latest outrage.”
Powell goes further to call Trump a disaster and that he has no shame.
Apart from his comments on being dragged into Clinton’s email issues, he has this to say: ‘everything [Clinton] touches she kind of screws up with hubris.’ In another message to”Hillary has not been covering here [sic] self with glory,” Powell writes. “For good reason she comes across as sleazy.”
