Garry Kasparov: I'm For Hillary as the Lesser of Two Evils

Garry Kasparov is supporting Hillary Clinton in her bid for the White House — even though the chess legend tells Newsmax TV he's appalled by Democratic nominee's past foreign policy work and believes she's "the second worst presidential candidate in history of this country."

"I have a record for years harshly criticizing President Obama and Secretary Clinton. I think the foreign policy imposed by Obama was a disaster," Kasparov said Friday on "America Talks Live" with Steve Malzberg.

"The world is not as safe as it was in 2008 but it's much less safe today than when George W. Bush left office. We need to restore American leadership. Unfortunately, we're here to choose the … lesser evil."

The Russian chess grandmaster and political activist who now lives in New York City, said his 9-year-old daughter Aida has labelled Clinton a "bum," and Trump a "nuke."
Still, he said, he'll take the "bum" over the "nuke."

"I don't see Trump as somebody who will stand his ground as a leader of the free world defending the values the way Harry Truman or Ronald Reagan did," Kasparov said.
But he adds that both the Republican and Democratic parties should be "disqualified for offering us such a horrible choice."

"[Clinton is] the second worst presidential candidate in history of this country, but she's lucky. She's running against Donald Trump."

Kasparov, who is considered the greatest chess player who ever lived, is author of the new book, "Winter Is Coming: Why Vladimir Putin and the Enemies of the Free World Must Be Stopped," published by PublicAffairs.

He said Russian President Vladimir Putin is pushing for a Trump presidency.

"Putin's goal is to undermine NATO, to destroy the European Union. He needs someone who will help him to create this instability and he sees Trump as a perfect partner for that," Kasparov said.
