Washington - A group of 50 former GOP national security officials has signed an open letter opposing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Those who signed worked for former presidents Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George HW Bush and George W Bush and say they are convinced that Trump would be "the most reckless president in American history".

The letter is similar to one issued by some of the same Republican former officials and foreign policy experts in March.

The letter released on Monday does contain some new names, however, including former UN ambassador John Negroponte, former CIA director Michael Hayden and former secretary of homeland security Tom Ridge.

None of the living former Republican secretaries of state signed the letter, although Condoleezza Rice's ex-chief of staff, Brian Gunderson, is among the signatories.
