Donald Trump has continued his long attack, via disrespectful and asinine comments, on America’s veterans and military personnel in general, including a remark insinuating that veterans suffering from PTSD and other emotional/psychological disorders are “weak.”
Many people took issue with Trump’s comments and took to Twitter to blast the GOP candidate. Trump said to a group in Northern Virginia, “When people come back from war and combat, they see things that maybe a lot of the folks in this room have seen many times over, and you’re strong and you can handle it, but a lot of people can’t handle it,”
Add this to his past remarks insulting John McCain for being a POW, insulting a Gold-Star family whose son was killed in combat, claiming the risk of STDs while having sex with multiple women was his own “personal Vietnam,” among dozens of other comments, all while avoiding the draft himself as a young man, and you have a president that is certainly not endearing himself to the military community.
Here are some of those Tweets:
We need a president who understands the needs of our veterans and supports our military. Donald Trump is clearly not that person.
