“I’m amazed that veterans groups are so charmed by him.”

New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton, who announced Tuesday he will resign in September, said he’s frightened by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

“Mr. Trump scares me. Scares the hell out of me, to be quite frank with you,” Bratton said Wednesday on CBS’s “This Morning.” 

“I just don’t get it, in terms of the support for him,” Bratton added. “As a veteran, a Vietnam veteran, I’m amazed that veterans groups are so charmed by him.”

Bratton said it was “appalling” that Trump accepted a Purple Heart from a veteran at a rally on Tuesday.

Bratton also discussed Trump during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Wednesday, wondering whether the presidential hopeful “has ever taken a punch in his life.”

“[Trump] talks tough, but I think a little bit about law and order and policing, I would not trust that he would be able to do much about that, being quite frank with you,” Bratton said on MSNBC.
