Trump gets support of 88 retired generals and admirals

Donald Trump got the backing of 88 retired U.S. generals and admirals Tuesday.

“It is a great honor to have such amazing support from so many distinguished retired military leaders,” Trump said in a statement. “Keeping our nation safe and leading our armed forces is the most important responsibility of the presidency.”

The list of admirals and generals who signed the letter includes four 4-star and 14 3-star flag officers.

Trump has made veterans affairs a central theme of his campaign. However, he got into hot water this summer after insulting the family of a fallen soldier.
