The presumptive GOP nominee has struggled to win over some conservatives who are concerned with his lack of foreign policy experience. Brent Sowcroft, who served as an adviser to former presidents Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush, and Richard Armitage, deputy secretary of State under ex-President George W. Bush, have said they'll back Clinton over Trump.

Kagan wrote a Washington Post op-ed last month disputing Trump’s credibility for holding the nation’s highest office.

“The Republican Party’s attempt to treat Donald Trump as a normal political candidate would be laughable were it not so perilous to the republic,” he wrote on May 18. “This is how fascism comes to America, not with jackboots and salutes (although there have been salutes, and a whiff of violence), but with a television huckster, a phony billionaire, a textbook egomaniac ‘tapping into’ popular resentments and insecurities, and with an entire national political party – out of ambition, or blind party loyalty, or simply out of fear – falling into line behind him.” 

Clinton, the likely Democratic presidential nominee, leads Trump by 6 points nationwide.
