How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Former CIA Director: Military May Reject Trump’s Orders If He Becomes President

If Donald Trump becomes president, there’s a real possibility that the U.S. military would refuse to follow his orders, said former CIA director Michael Hayden.

“I would be incredibly concerned if a President Trump governed in a way that was consistent with the language that candidate Trump expressed during the campaign,” Hayden said during an interview on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher.”

Hayden said the concern is that Trump’s increasingly heated rhetoric would represent his foreign policy decisions.

Earlier this month, Trump said “torture works” and expressed support for waterboarding and other cruel interrogation techniques to get terrorists to divulge information.

Trump went a step further to say that other methods should be employed that are “so much worse” and “much stronger.”

“Don’t tell me it doesn’t work — torture works,” Trump told the Sun City retirement community. “Okay, folks? Torture — you know, half these guys [say]: ‘Torture doesn’t work.’ Believe me, it works. Okay?”

President Obama ended waterboarding during his first term in office.

“Let me give you a punchline: If he were to order that once in government, the American armed forces would refuse to act,” Hayden suggested.
