Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) a former Captain in the United States Marine Corps said that a lot of members of the U.S. military don’t want to meet with President Trump during an interview on Politico‘s “Off Message” podcast on Tuesday.

Politico‘s Edward-Isaac Dovere asked Moulton if it mattered that President Trump hasn’t visited the troops yet.

“I’ve talked to a lot of troops that don’t want to see him,” Moulton said.

Dovere then asked Moulton why the troops don’t want to see Trump, noting that he is their commander-in-chief.

“Well, look, I’m certainly not speaking for all the troops. I would never pretend to do that, and I’m sure there are some troops that support him,'” Moulton said. “You want to have a commander-in-chief that you can look up to. I mean, I remember that experience in the military. You want to have someone [whom], even if you don’t agree with, you can respect.”

Moulton then blasted Trump for being incredibly soft on Russia and alleged there is significant evidence that suggested Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“The point is that you’re not expected to agree with the politics of your commander-in-chief, but you ought to respect his or her integrity,” Moulton said. “We have a commander-in-chief that we fundamentally can’t trust.”
