“Focus on the real issues!”
During a press conference about his donations to a multitude of veterans organizations, Donald Trump lambasted the media as “disgusting” for their reporting on the issue, but not quite like one veteran who’s supporting the GOP nominee.
“I would never ever put my name on a candidate that did not, from his heart, look me in the eye and tell me he’s concerned about veterans,” said Al Baldasaro, a veteran who spent 22 years in the Marines. “That’s Donald Trump.”
Baldasaro then slammed the media for what he says is a clear bias against Trump, pointing out how the media has been focused on how the New York businessman went about donating the $5.6 million he raised for various veterans groups.
“The liberal media are the only ones that have been calling me on the foundation,” Baldasaro said. “Alright, I’m the former chairman, I’ve been dealing with this stuff for years as a veterans activist. Stop using veterans as political pawns.”
“Donald Trump is doing this from the heart,” Baldasaro continued. “You’re all focused on the way he’s raising money and you’re not looking at the 22 veterans that are killing each other everyday. You’re not concerned about the thousands of veterans that are on wait lists.
“Look at his plan on Trump’s website. He talks about medical costs,” Baldasaro ended. “He talks about the VA. He talks about competition. I think the liberal media, and I’ve been dealing with you a long time, need to get your head out of your butt and focus on the real issues.”
