Veterans call on Trump to show respect
The very need for veterans to make this statement about a presidential candidate shows how unsuitable he is for the job.
More than 50 veterans released a statement Sunday calling on presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump to show respect for the country’s veterans and donate the millions of dollars he allegedly raised during a fundraiser several months ago.
“Donald Trump recently discovered a new love for America’s veterans, promising that a Trump administration will ‘treat them really, really well,’” the statement released by Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton’s campaign said.
“Yet after a publicity stunt earlier this year when he ditched a GOP debate to hold an event on behalf of veterans, his campaign still hasn’t distributed more than half of the $6 million dollars it allegedly raised.”
The statement signed by veterans, including Democratic Reps. Ruben Gallego and Seth Moulton, said Trump’s campaign doesn’t even know where the money raised during that event went.
