Trump panders to veterans by trashing immigrants
Trump told a Memorial Day weekend rally that undocumented immigrants are treated better than they are.
Speaking at the annual Rolling Thunder motorcycle rally in D.C., Trump told the crowd that immigrants in the United States who don’t have a legal status are better cared for than American military veterans. This from a man who once criticized Arizona Sen. John McCain’s military service in Vietnam by saying, “I like people who weren’t captured.”
The Rolling Thunder rally honors soldiers who are missing in action or prisoners of war, and raises awareness about veterans issues.
Trump told the crowd, “We have a lot of things to straighten out in this country,” and, “ We need to rebuild our military.” He also reminded them of that wall he plans to build.
