Defiant Trump Won’t Back Down, SLAMS McCain for Failing America’s Veterans


by Jason DeWitt | Top Right News

If the GOP establishment (and their media allies) thought they had buried Donald Trump over his controversial comments about John McCain’s war record yesterday — they thought wrong.

As Top Right News reported last night, Trump’s words were likely misquoted, even distorted, by the Washington Post and others, according to veteran former CBS News journalist Sharyl Attkisson, who detailed what Trump actually said, word-for-word.

In the wake of that revelation, and in response to the massive attacks against him all weekend, Trump has come back swinging in an op-ed piece in USA Today this evening, taking new aim at McCain’s dreadful record on veterans and immigration, and reminding folks that McCain is the one who started this feud — attacking Arizonans who came out against illegal immigration as “crazies.”

Here is Trump’s post in its entirety:

John McCain has called his own constituents who want a secure border “crazies.”  No one in the news media or the establishment, including the Republican National Committee, criticized the senator for those comments.

Now, as respected reporter Sharyl Attkisson has proved point by point, the news media are also distorting my words. But that is not my point. McCain the politician has failed the state of Arizona and the country.

During my entire business career, I have always made supporting veterans a top priority because our heroes deserve the very best for defending our freedom. Our Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals are outdated dumps. I will build the finest and most modern veterans hospitals in the world. The current medical assistance to our veterans is a disaster. A Trump administration will provide the finest universal access health care for our veterans. They will be able to get the best care anytime and anywhere.

Thanks to McCain and his Senate colleague Bernie Sanders, their legislation to cover up the VA scandal, in which 1,000+ veterans died waiting for medical care, made sure no one has been punished, charged, jailed, fined or held responsible. McCain has abandoned our veterans. I will fight for them.

The reality is that John McCain the politician has made America less safe, sent our brave soldiers into wrong-headed foreign adventures, covered up for President Obama with the VA scandal and has spent most of his time in the Senate pushing amnesty. He would rather protect the Iraqi border than Arizona’s. He even voted for the Iran Nuclear Review Act of 2015, which allows Obama, who McCain lost to in a record defeat, to push his dangerous Iran nuclear agreement through the Senate without a supermajority of votes.

A number of my competitors for the Republican nomination have no business running for president. I do not need to be lectured by any of them. Many are failed politicians or people who would be unable to succeed in the private sector. Some, however, I have great respect for.

My record of veteran support is well-documented. I served as co-chairman of the New York Vietnam Veterans Memorial Commission and was responsible, with a small group, for getting it built. Toward this end, I contributed over $1 million so our warriors can be honored in New York City with a proper memorial. I also helped finance and served as the grand marshal of the 1995 Nation’s Day Parade, which honored over 25,000 veterans.  It was one of the biggest parades in the history of New York City, and I was very proud to have made it possible.

I will continue to fight to secure our border and take care of our veterans because these steps are vital to make America great again!

    Trump may be rough around the edges when it comes to diplomacy, but we are WAY past needing another smooth talking PC politician in America! “Tell It Like It Is Trump” in 2016!

    tired of the same old retoric coming out of the house and senate time to literally clean house set term limits and tell the ones still there to find solutions quit backing failed policies and quit wasting taxpayer dollars. throwing money at problems is proven ineffective, look at the WAR ON POVERTY throw money at it and create more DEPENDANTS……GOVERNMENT SLAVERY! No more LAWYERS IN CONGRESS or THE WHITE HOUSE!

    Liking Trump more and more. Right now, he’s one of 2 people I’d vote for. The other person being Ben Carson.

    Trump understands what is important. The truth, not political correctness. Taking care of THIS country and it’s citizens.He doesn’t have to be bought off by big business and special interests. It’s time for a real change in this country and I believe Trump may just be that needed change. McCain is and always will be a hack and should have been voted out in the last election. As a veteran I’m proud that McCain served, but his actions as a Senator are in contrast to what this country needs. Trump 2016.

    • USMC and America proud

      McCain’s not really a veteran to be proud of….
      This is just one of many diatribes on the man from those who knew him when..

    McCain needs to retire and fade away.

    Political Correctness = Social Terrorism

    Trump is fighting back against the Social Terrorists!

    Conservatives are ignoring this possibility: That Trump is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.. That his endgame may be to run 3rd party to ensure the conservative vote splits and hand the white house to the liberal democrats.. We can’t put blinders on now, just because a person comes along speaking things people like to hear.. We hafta keep this possibility in the back of our minds, please, for God’s sake.. You can’t script a better fox in the henhouse, Perot-esque, situation to backdoor a liberal democrat into office..
