Candidate Disinformation

Rumor:

Trump has been a strong supporter of veterans and the military.

Reality:

Trump has disrespected soldiers and veterans.

Trump has not supported veterans or the military nearly as much as he claims. Trump has called veterans “losers.” The Veteran’s Choice Program he brags about began under President Obama. He has insulted many veterans including Sen. John McCain, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, Rep. Conor Lamb, and the family of Capt. Humayun Khan. He has referred to generals serving in his administration as “dopes and babies.”
