Donald 'I Love The Veterans' Trump Didn't Attend A Single Veteran's Day Event
November 13, 2016

Donald Trump always says how much he loves Veterans.

Yet, his record shows he fires them for serving, fought to have them not be able to earn a living as street vendors, ridiculed a decorated war hero by saying "I like people who weren't captured", ridiculed a Gold Star family repeatedly and mercilessly, gloated when a man gave him his Purple Heart saying "it was much easier" to get it handed to him and minimized the damage IED's cause by calling them a "little ride upward."

Yeah, he loves the Vets.

Anyways, 3 days after Trump won the Presidential election it would seem fitting for him to honor the veterans in some way, right? Visit Arlington Cemetery while he was in DC meeting President Obama, go to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial or at the very least make some sort of donation or acknowledgement at a VA or Veterans center, right?

Guess how much he did.

Zero. That's right, our president elect loves veterans so much that he completely ignored the one day of the year designated as a day to honor current, past and future members of the military.

At least he sent a tweet written by a staffer that read:

"Today we express our deepest gratitude to all those who have served in our armed forces. #ThankAVet"

Just a tweet. Can you imagine the rage if President Obama did that?

Can you help us out?
