King made the statement on CNN on Thursday morning. He feels she would be the best decision maker during a nuclear attack.

King told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "New Day." "I just can't in good conscience put someone in that airplane whose coolness and patience and judgment I have doubts about."

The Independent King was also impressed with Clinton's testimony before the Benghazi committee. King didn't endorse anyone during the primary season.
