Trump claims parents of Korean War vets lobbied him during 2016 campaign. There's just one problem

"They said, 'when you can, president, we'd love our son to be brought back home' -- you know, the remains."

AARON RUPAR JUN 14, 2018, 9:14 AM


During a Fox News interview that ran on Wednesday evening, President Trump touted an aspect of his agreement with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un that will allow for repatriation of the remains of American soldiers who died during the Korean War.

“One of the things that really I’m happy is that the soldiers that died in Korea, their remains are going to be coming back home,” Trump said. “And we have thousands of people that have asked for that — thousands and thousands of people.”

It’s true that there are families of veterans who fell in Korea who are still trying to recover remains. But Trump then told a story about parents of Korean War veterans who purportedly approached him during the 2016 presidential campaign.

“So many people asked when I was on the campaign,” Trump said. “I’d say, ‘wait a minute, I don’t have any relationship’ — but they said, ‘when you can, president, we’d love our son to be brought back home’ — you know, the remains.”

5. The number of parents of Korean War veterans who are still alive is

almost certainly near or at zero. Trump's an idiot.

7. He'll ignore it and after Steve Miller does the math, the Mouth of Drumpf of the Day will claim...

"Fake news! What he really said was he heard from a group of sons of Korean War vets wanted their parents remains back, but as usual, you all wrote it down backwards to make him look stupid!"

10. My father

fought in the Korean War. His father died in 1942 and his mother died in 1970. My dad died 20 years ago. Trump is a liar and a bad liar at that.
