Across the U.S. and here in Page County, Americans serving to protect and defend our country disapprove of our current President and support Joe Biden as our next Commander in Chief.
A majority of active military, up and down the ranks, support Joe Biden and disapprove of the current President, according to the recent survey in the Military Times. https://www.militarytimes.com/news/pentagon-congress/2020/08/31/as-trumps-popularity-slips-in-latest-military-times-poll-more-troops-say-theyll-vote-for-biden/
And now nearly 500 U.S. military, intelligence and diplomatic leaders —Republicans, Democrats and Independents — have united to form National Security Leaders for Biden. For the sake of our nation’s security, they recently issued an “Open Letter to America,” endorsing Joe Biden for President. https://www.fox5dc.com/news/we-are-republicans-democrats-and-independents-489-retired-military-leaders-endorse-joe-biden
After extensive dealings with our current President, former Secretary of Defense Marine General James Mattis resigned and now calls the President “a clear and present danger” to our country. Many other leading Republican military and intelligence figures endorse Joe Biden, including former Secretary of State General Colin Powell, former Director of the CIA Michael Hayden, former vice chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Air Force General Paul Selva, and scores of others who signed the Open Letter.
Page County’s own retired Two-Star Army General, Randy Manner, recently explained his support for Joe Biden in an interview on the Luray Greenway. Formerly Deputy Commander of the 3d U.S. Army in Iraq and Kuwait and Acting Director of pandemic planning for the Department of Defense Threat Reduction Agency, he dealt first-hand with Joe Biden. He emphatically endorses Joe Biden as the leader with the experience, wisdom and steady hand to defend our nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic. See the first installment of Major General Manner’s interview on the Page County Democrats’ Facebook page and watch for future installments.
