'Trump Could Get Angry And Start A War': Roosevelt
The great-great-grandson of one of America's greatest Presidents has warned that Donald Trump is a danger to the western world because of his temper.
Kermit Roosevelt III, a relative of Theodore Roosevelt, told LBC that Mr Trump could start a war if something riles him a bit - and that is a huge concern to him.
Mr Roosevelt, a Professor of Law at Pennsylvania Law School, told Nick Ferrari: "It's been quite frightening to me and a little bit depressing.
"I've learned that people are much more susceptible to demagoguery and misinformation than I had hoped would be the case.
"Trump could be very dangerous. There really is no way of knowing what he would do. I have no confidence in his political principles.
"I worry that he's going to get personally upset and fly off the handle and use the enormous powers of the presidency to pursue his individual vendettas.
"I could see Trump starting a war."
When Nick Ferrari asked with whom that would be, Mr Roosevelt responded: "Anyone who tweeted something offensive about him."
