Trump Accuses U.S. Vets Of Stealing Money In Iraq

Way to win friends and influence people, Donald.

At his rally tonight, Donald Drumpf accused United States veterans of stealing money meant for Iraq.

"How about bringing baskets of money into Iraq? I want to know -- who were the soldiers who had that job?," roared Trump.

“I want to know who were the soldiers that had that job, ’cause I think they’re living well right now, whoever they may be," he continued.

Hope Hicks, Trump's spokeswoman, insists he was referring to Iraqi soldiers, but if you listen to what he says, it doesn't sound like it to me.

Hicks can spin it any way she wants, but it's not the first time Trump has said this, and he was far more specific the last time he did it, back in October.

He also suggested that some American soldiers charged with distributing money to fund the Afghan and Iraqi government embezzled it instead. “I want to know who are the soldiers carrying suitcases with $50m?” asked Trump. “How stupid are we? I wouldn’t be surprised if those soldiers, if the cash didn’t get there.”

Perhaps Rick Wilson could get a journalist to ask Drumpf about this:

Drumpf's speech was in North Carolina, and it was the usual Hitler-ish hatefest we've come to expect from any of his rallies. But this is a new addition. I'm not exactly sure who he expect to attract when he attacks veterans of the Iraq war, but there it is, in black and orange.
