Gates called Trump out yesterday as being a danger to the United States. Trump responded by calling him "a nasty guy," an "absolute clown," and "dopey."

 

Trump: "Believe me, I am so much better at what he’s doing than he is, you won’t even believe it."

 

Can you imagine listening to this idiot for four years? And he would be the voice of the USA! omg.

Yesterday former Defense Secretary Robert Gates slammed Trump saying that "Trump is beyond repair" and "The world we confront is too perilous and too complex to have as president a man who believes he, and he alone, has all the answers and has no need to listen to anyone," Gates wrote. "A thin-skinned, temperamental, shoot-from-the-hip and lip, uninformed commander in chief is too great a risk for America."

 

Today, Trump shot back.

 

Donald Trump carried his attacks on former Defense Secretary Robert Gates from Twitter to a rally in Colorado Springs, Colo., Saturday night, calling Gates a "nasty guy."

“We had a clown today, an absolute clown. Robert Gates — he’s supposed to be an expert; he’s been there forever," Trump said.

"Never met the guy, never saw him. I saw him on television, didn’t like him. The end result is look where we are. He’s a mess, OK? He’s a mess, so he goes out and he says negative things about me. I never met him; I never talked to him. Believe me, I am so much better at what he’s doing than he is, you won’t even believe it."

"He’s a nasty guy. Probably has a problem that we don’t know about," he said.

Gates specifically ripped Trump for “naive and irresponsible” expressions of admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin and for a Middle East plan he called a “dangerous approach oblivious to the reality” of the region. Trump fired back on Twitter, calling Gates "dopey."
Trump said at the rally that Gates's leadership — he was in office from 2006 to 2011 — left the world worse off and cost trillions of dollars and many lives.

"We're dealing with incompetent people. We're dealing with stupid people. We're dealing with people like Robert Gates that don’t have a clue, and then when they leave office, they criticize everybody," Trump said. "I don’t like critics. I don't like critics. I like the people that get it done and get it done right."
