Donald Trump lashed back against the 50 Republican national security officials who petitioned against support of their party's presidential nominee Monday, issuing a statement which thanked those "failed Washington elite" for outing themselves as the cause of America's current problems.

"The names on this letter are the ones the American people should look to for answers on why the world is a mess, and we thank them for coming forward so everyone in the country knows who deserves the blame for making the world such a dangerous place," Trump stated in his response.

"They are nothing more than the failed Washington elite looking to hold onto their power, and it's time they are held accountable for their actions."
 

 

Trump's 50 Republican critics said their party's presidential nominee "would be the most reckless president in American history," according to reports, although they declined to endorse a vote for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

"These insiders – along with Hillary Clinton – are the owners of the disastrous decisions to invade Iraq, allow Americans to die in Benghazi, and they are the ones who allowed the rise of ISIS," Trump's statement read.

"Together, we will break up the rigged system in Washington, make America safe again, and we will Make America Great Again."
