Donald Trump stays in controversy as he claims he’s been misinterpreted again.
This time he has angered US military veterans activists for allegedly commenting on Tuesday that the U.S. Troops stole millions of dollars that were designated for the rebuilding of Irag during the war. The Presidential Candidate was in North Carolina giving a campaign speech about cutting Government waste and getting more out of tax payer dollars. He then went on to talk about the costly money pit in the Middle East. “Irag. Crooked as hell,” he said. ” how about bringing baskets of money, millions of dollars and handing it out?” “I want to know who are the soldiers that had that job because I think they’re living very well right now, whoever they may be. Think of it, the money that went out.” Trump’s campaign later issued a statement saying the comments were directed at Iraqi troops, not U.S. troops. He was referring to the Iragi’s Military Fanatics that had oversight on managing the hundred million plus dollars in rebuilding Irag. Misappropriation of funds? Officials from VoteVets.org said the comments were just the latest in offensive comments about the military and he should be disqualified from running as President. “Trump’s attack against the courageous American men and women who heroically worked to restore law and order in Iraq is at once uninformed and irresponsible,” said retired Maj. Gen. Paul Eaton, senior adviser to the group.
