MADISON – It’s been two weeks since 50 GOP national security officials signed a letter saying Trump “would be the most reckless President in American history,” and yet Mike Gallagher continues to stand by his stated support for Donald Trumpeven suggesting he should start naming his foreign policy team.

“For years, Mike Gallagher lived in a high-end neighborhood in Washington, working for the politicians who run the place,” Brandon Weathersby, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, said on Monday. “With top national GOP leaders calling Trump reckless and dangerous, it’s astounding that “DC Mike” is willing to put his party over his country by not outright rejecting a presidential candidate so unfit to serve.”

Despite the outcry from our country’s top military officials, Mike Gallagher seems to be comfortable with Donald Trump being in control of our military and the nuclear codes. Gallagher has tried to cover his bad judgement by saying Trump will “put the best people around him and listen to their advice and council.” However, GOP leaders disagree, stating he will be unable to listen to his advisers or encourage conflicting views.

“Mike Gallagher’s support of Donald Trump is dangerous for Wisconsin and our country. We deserve better than another Trump apologist representing us,” Weathersby concluded.
