Donald Trump's critics are saying what critics of Ronald Reagan said before the 1980 election, Reagan's son Michael told Newsmax TV.
During an interview on "The Hard Line," Michael Reagan said it's the same rhetoric he's heard before.
"These are the same things they said about my father in 1980. He was a cowboy, he was going to start World War III, you can't trust him with the nuclear codes, they're going to turn Iran into a parking lot," Reagan told John Bachman. "I mean these are the things that the left keeps on bringing up time and time and time and time and time again to try and detract from their lack of real purpose, their lack of foreign policy.
"You look at Donald Trump, you may be upset with his words, but I am more than upset with what Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have done to the foreign policy of the United States of America and the lack of respect America now has around the globe."

Reagan also pointed out that China and Russia are trying to expand their borders, which his father never let happen.
"You know, my father said in his final address to the nation from the Oval Office, one of the greatest things he was proud of that during his tenure as president, the Soviet Union did not expand one inch anywhere in the world. Well, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama can't say that."
On a separate thread, Reagan noted that the younger generation does not know history. He cited a 28-year-old who did not know why there was an American cemetery in Normandy, France, a German youth who blamed the Berlin Wall's construction on the United States, and the fact that many of today's youth don't know any of the U.S. presidents besides Obama and George W. Bush.
