Donald Trump’s foreign policy stances continue to cost him support from his own party.

Senator Susan Collins, writing in a Washington, DC.. newspaper that if elected, Donald Trump “would make an already perilous world even more so.”

Her comments come as 50 former national security officials who worked for Republican presidents since the 1950’s released a letter saying if elected, Trump would be “the most reckless president in American history” and said they can’t vote for him.

Signers include former leaders of the CIA, Department of Homeland Security, and a World Bank president.

Trump said the people who signed that letter are responsible for why “the world is a mess.”

But stumping in the crucial swing-state of Florida, Tuesday, the Democratic Presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton tweeted: “Just imagine Donald Trump in the Oval Office facing a real crisis. We can’t afford that kind of risk.”
