Former Secretary of State Colin Powell called Donald Trump a “national disgrace” in a series of private emails reviewed by BuzzFeed News. Powell also said in an email that Trump “is in the process of destroying himself, no need for Dems to attack him. [Speaker of the House] Paul Ryan is calibrating his position again.” Additionally he called the birther movement, which Trump popularized in 2012, a “racist” movement.
