Trump Never Enlisted, But He Did "Feel Like A Great And Very Brave Soldier"

Jul 11, 2016

Donald Trump today had a lot of lip service about his respect for American servicemembers and veterans, but his sad history with veterans and lack of military service shows it’s all empty rhetoric.

Trump has disparaged prisoners of warlied about his donations to veterans charities, and repeatedly compared of serving in Vietnam with navigating New York’s dating scene.
Trump has never served in the military, pursuing four draft deferments as a student to avoid going to Vietnam. After graduation, ABC News reports that Trump was subsequently “declared medically unfit to serve” over what he’s since called “a foot thing.”

Donald Trump never served his country but that doesn’t mean he didn’t “feel like a great and very brave soldier” facing off against sexually transmitted diseases in “his personal Vietnam,” New York’s dating scene.
This is Trump’s record of “military service”:

Trump: Avoiding STDs “is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave solider.”

Trump: “We Have Our Own Vietnam. It’s Called the Dating Game.”

Trump: “Dating Is Like Being In Vietnam.”

Trump: I Felt “A Little Guilty” For Not Serving In Vietnam Because Of My “Foot Thing.” 
Trump On Why He Didn’t Serve In Vietnam: “I Was Going To College, I Had Student Deferments. I Also Got A Great Lottery Number.”
