'If I learned anything from 25 years in the F.B.I it was to see a threat unfolding. Those of us who were part of the post-Sept. 11 intelligence community had a duty to sound the alarm about an impending threat. Now, instinct & experience tell me we’re headed for trouble in the form of white hate violence stoked by a racially divisive president.If a president paints people of color as the enemy, encourages them to be sent back to where they came from & implies that no humans want to live in certain American cities, he gives license to those who feel compelled to eradicate what Mr. Trump calls an infestation. I hope I’m wrong. Reporting indicates that Mr. Trump’s rants emboldened white hate groups & reinforced racist blogs, news sites & social media platforms; he empowers hateful & potentially violent individuals with his divisive rhetoric & his unwillingness to denounce white supremacy.'

"It doesn't really matter whether Mr. Trump is truly a racist or merely playing one on television to appeal to his base. Either way, his path can lead to bloodshed. When that happens, we will hear White House officials and the Republican leadership claim their hands are clean because malicious people can't be stopped from acting out.

Don't believe a word of it. Terrorists aren't born that way: They are inspired, cultivated and directed. Our experience with online radicalization has shown there is a clear path to violence. I fear we are on it.'
