Draft-Dodging Trump: ‘If You Don’t Want To Fight For Our Country, Leave’
Donald Trump, who dodged the military draft multiple times because of “bone spurs,” told reporters on Wednesday that if people don’t want to fight to protect the United States then they can leave the country.
“If people want to leave our country, they can,” Trump said. “If they don’t want to love our country, if they don’t want to fight for our country, they can [leave]. I’ll never change on that, no.”
The irony in this statement is out of this world. Trump’s father was able to get a doctor to diagnose him with bone spurs that prevented him from being able to go to war in Vietnam. Former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey accused Trump of lying and dodging the draft with a fake diagnosis.
“He said, ‘I wasn’t eligible to go to Vietnam because I had bone spurs.’ You don’t grow out of bone spurs. I call on the president, get your feet x-rayed. Let’s see those x-rays. I want to see,” Kerrey said in an interview in March.
