Russian bounties further strain Trump's bond with veterans

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) ó They didn't like it when then-candidate Donald Trump criticized John McCain for being captured in combat. They were angrier when Trump, as commander in chief, abandoned Kurdish allies in the Middle East. And they were upset again last month when he threatened to deploy troops against American protesters.

Trump's relationship with the nation's military community has been frequently strained. But just four months before the November election, reports that he either ignored, or was unaware of, a Russian plot to kill U.S. troops could intensify the tension and create new political risks.

ďI donít think he cares about troops at all,Ē said Shawn LeMond, a Navy veteran who served his country in the Middle East and then his state of North Carolina as a Republican legislator. ďIf he didnít know about Russia, itís because he didnít do his damn homework. And thatís despicable.Ē

After sitting out the 2016 election, LeMond has withdrawn from the Republican Party and plans to vote for Trump's Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, this fall.

4. The chick's are coming home to roost.

With what Veterans and Active Duty know about the Trump-Pence Administration,how can any Veteran or Active Duty Military family vote for this ricket?

As much as he tries, Mike Pence CANNOT separate himself from the stink and corruption that is Trump. He has been kissing Trump's ass since he was selected as VP. His complicit nest in all this is on full display. The Biden campaign knows this to be fact.

6. I don't think that Putin's Bounties will help in Texas

There are a LOT of military veterans down here. If many of the older ones hated Mr. Billís parsing during the Lewinsky affair, theyíll see red when it comes to Donnie playing dumb about the Russians putting bounties on dead US troops.

8. Two of the guys I served with in the Gulf are still huge Trumpsters.

I don't anything will shake them loose.

The guy who was my tank commander re-tweeted that vile 'George Floyd' - Drug-Free For An Entire Month thing. Absolutely disgusting...

10. Just another constituency to Trump. He doesn't care about the military. Never did.
