VoteVets Statement on Donald Trump’s Speech to the American Legion

Cincinnati, OH -(ENEWSPF)–September 1, 2016.   The largest progressive veterans group in America, representing over 400,000 veterans, military families and civilian supporters, released the following statement regarding Donald Trump’s speech to the American Legion, today.
Jon Soltz, Iraq War Veteran and Chairman of said:
“Donald Trump isn’t fit to lead our military, and he definitely isn’t fit to address our veterans.  He can pay all the lip service he wants, but at the end of the day, he smeared a Gold Star family, he insulted POWs, he fought tooth and nail stop disabled veterans from working as vendors in front of his buildings, he stiffed veterans groups of money until he was caught, he threatened NATO and Japan, he insisted that the military will follow illegal orders that he plans to give them, he’s made our troops’ jobs harder by sending out virulently anti-Muslim messages, to the glee of ISIS, and his campaign suggested that he’d move veterans care to a private insurance model.
Donald Trump is in the midst of pulling off his biggest scam yet – making the American people believe he cares about them, and this country.  Part of that is selling the idea that he cares about our veterans and military.  The record is clear on that question – he doesn’t.  Not one ounce.  Veterans aren’t fooled, and the American people aren’t fooled.”
VoteVets PAC has spent millions of dollars in advertisements against Donald Trump, and promises to spend even more.  You can view the group’s ads here:
