Who explained on the air that the Nazis killed their four grandparents.
“If you are allowed to continue on this nonsensical path, Trump will cause lasting damage to American society and our reputation in the world.” In his words and actions, Trump puts our national security and our collective future at grave risk, “added Brennan .
