U.S. TRUMP IS 'AFRAID' TO VISIT WAR ZONE COMBAT TROOPS BECAUSE 'PEOPLE WANT TO KILL HIM'

https://www.newsweek.com/trump-afraid-visit-war-zone-combat-people-want-kill-him-report-1224081?utm_source=newsweek&utm_medium=push_notification&utm_campaign=onesignal&fbclid=IwAR1gXINlMmicWHRHZE9KCD_jmB8CG4Rb2ZYfa98v3rhPviUUm7s9QGeN9js


resident Donald Trump has told aides and White House officials that he was afraid to visit U.S. troops in war zones, and didn't back the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan.

"He's never been interested in going," one unnamed former senior White House official told The Washington Post. "He's afraid of those situations. He's afraid people want to kill him."


"I think you will see that happen," Trump told Wallace. "There are things that are being planned. We don't want to talk about it because of security reasons and everything else."

Trump also expressed his regret at not having visited Arlington National Cemetery on Veterans Day, saying had been busy with phone calls.

"I should have done that. I was extremely busy on calls for the country. We did a lot of calling as you know," Trump said.

Former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel in a recent CNN interview described Trump not visiting troops in a war zone as a "failure of an obligation.

"I think it's bigger than just a misstep—I think it's a failure of an obligation, of a basic obligation of a commander in chief," Hagel said. "He's commander in chief of our forces, and not to go to a war zone where we have men and women dying, that's just wrong."

According to The Post, Trump will not be visiting troops over the Thanksgiving holiday, which he will spend at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

21. I don't see where he would get that impression.😂

He's such a dick, I'm sure more than one kid at his military school said they would frag his ass in Vietnam.

2. Uh... Why doesn't that stop him from visiting soybean country? The same rationale applies there...

Doesn't it? Or shouldn't it?

Oh, stupid me, one cannot expect rational behavior from Trump or Trump-humpers!

3. I believe this. He told a story on radio where he had no intention of helping a bleeding man

in front of him at a dinner. He spoke about it like he was disGUSTED by it and couldn't believe the soldiers that came over and carried him away were getting blood all over their uniforms.

Trump is the kind of bully that would get his friends to beat you up and then walk over and crush your fingers with his boot while lecturing you about how much he hurt you. And we made him POTUS. :/

25. No, REPUBLICANS made him COTUS

(Conman of the United States)

They gladly took Russia's help, but it was their people, the base they've been cultivating for decades, that elected him.

Russia didn't invent that, they just took the conservative programming and cloned a second set of controls.

Absolutely. Can you imagine that selfish, arrogant prick out there in a war zone? Hell, he'd be the first to go.

is that a lot of the military personnel still love him anyway. I hope this serves as a wake-up call to them.

29. Trump is no tough guy,

he is so paranoid that someone is going to poison him, he feels there is less chance to be poisoned at fast food restaurants.

I guess because there is no polonium soup on the drive thru menu?
