This week in 2017, Florida Congresswoman Frederica Wilson confirmed then-President Trump told the widow of deceased Army Sergeant, La David Johnson, that her husband “knew what he was getting into.”
In recent weeks, retired four-star U.S. Marine Corps general, and Trump’s longest-serving White House chief of staff, John Kelly confirmed to CNN he witnessed Trump make numerous offensive comments attacking U.S. service members and veterans.
American Bridge 21st Century Presidential Campaigns Communications Director Brandon Weathersby released the following statement in response to the anniversary of Trump’s infamous remarks:
“We can’t have another four years of a president who has zero respect for U.S. service members or their families. To paraphrase General John Kelly, what more can be said about Donald Trump’s record of insulting our military that hasn’t already been said? The bottom line is that Trump’s own disgusting rhetoric and attitudes towards members of our military should disqualify this fucking guy from assuming the title of commander-in-chief ever again.”
American Bridge’s “This F*cking Guy” campaign is reminding voters of key moments from Trump’s presidency as he pursues the GOP nomination in 2024. Our Trump Research Book website exists to help allies find the research needed to defeat Donald Trump. The site is organized into multiple reports designed to help tell the full story about Trump’s failed presidency and make the case against his 2024 campaign.
