Trump: It’s ‘Morally Unfair’ To Send Military To Help West Africa With Ebola
[su_right_ad]The Donald has spoken, warning of “hell to pay” if a soldier gets infected with Ebola.
Real estate tycoon Donald Trump blasted President Barack Obama on Tuesday for his handling of the Ebola crisis overseas, telling MailOnline that putting servicemen and women in close proximity to the deadly virus is ‘morally unfair to the soldiers, and to the soldiers’ families.’
The perennial Republican maybe-candidate said in an interview that exposure to Ebola is inevitable for the hundreds of U.S. military personnel serving in Liberia.
And it may be only a matter of time, he predicted, before men and women in uniform contract the disease – which kills between 50 and 70 per cent of its victims.
‘You’re going to see a whole new kind of “hell to pay” if they catch it,’ Trump said…
Speaking Tuesday before taking off for a political rally in Wisconsin, President Obama told reporters that military quarantines are handled differently from civilian situations ‘because they are, first of all, not treating patients. Second of all, they are not there voluntarily, it’s part of their mission that’s been assigned to them by their commanders and ultimately by me.'[su_csky_ad]
