Donald Trump John McCain

No apology to McCain

19 Jul, 2015

Trump says that he does not owe McCain an apology saying that that vets are treated “like third-class citizens” and that McCain hasn’t done anything to help them.

People that fought hard and weren’t captured and went through a lot, they get no credit. Nobody even talks about them. They’re like forgotten, and I think that’s a shame, if you want to know the truth…I’m very disappointed in John McCain because the vets are horribly treated in this country. I’m fighting for the vets. I’ve done a lot for the vets.

He also says he received a standing ovation at the campaign event where he spoke, that nobody was insulted. On not serving in Vietnam:

If I would have gotten a low number, I would have been drafted. I would have proudly served. But I got a number, I think it was 356. That’s right at the very end. And they didn’t get — I don’t believe — past even 300, so I was — I was not chosen because of the fact that I had a very high lottery number.

Asked if he would continue name calling:

When people attack me, I let them have it back. People are constantly attacking my hair. I don’t see you coming to my defense.
