A longtime Republican and former top adviser to Gen. David Petraeus in Iraq said Wednesday that he was voting for Hillary Clinton because "Donald Trump is not fit to be president."

"He would be a dangerous person in that office," retired Army Col. Peter Mansoor told Anderson Cooper on CNN. "He would alienate many of America's long-standing allies, can't be trusted on the nuclear trigger, lacks character — and the foundation of knowledge necessary to be an effective president."

Mansoor, 56, was Petraeus' executive officer throughout the war in Baghdad, particularly the 2007 troop surge. He now is an associate professor of military history at Ohio State University.

He ripped Trump on many fronts, saying that the presumptive Republican nominee "opposes free trade among conservative economics — and he would diminish the moral standing in the world with his stance on Muslims and Mexicans and women.

"I cannot support him as president nor would I want him in office.

"My conclusion is I have to vote for the person that has the best chance of beating him," Mansoor said. "I think that's Hillary Rodham Clinton."
