Former CIA and National Security Agency head Gen. Michael Hayden tells Newsmax TV he isn't sure who he should vote when looking at the two major party candidates.
"The discussions of Ukraine and what's going on there by one candidate [Republican Donald Trump] was totally fact-free, and discussions of the emails over here by the other candidate [Democrat Hillary Clinton,] the system she set up for anyone like me was inconceivable, and the later explanations of it were incoherent," Hayden said Monday on "The Hard Line."

Trump said over the weekend he would prevent Russia from invading Ukraine, though he was challenged by ABC's George Stephanopoulos that Russia already had invaded Crimea, which is part of Ukraine.
"I'm over 70 years old and this is the most difficult election I've ever faced because, like most of America, I've got strong disapproval fractions for both candidates," Hayden told Newsmax TV's Ed Berliner on Monday. "This is something that I've not yet decided. I'm pretty much convinced that Mr. Trump just doesn't have the tools to lead America when it comes to national security, but that in no way suggests that I'm prepared to vote for Secretary Clinton either. I think I'm like a whole bunch of other Americans facing quite a dilemma."
