Veterans named as Donald Trump supporters say they were not consulted

Donald Trump to moderate Republican presidential debate; The debate is set for Dec. 27, one week before the Iowa caucuses.

Several people listed as part of the “Veterans for Trump coalition” formed by Donald Trump following his incendiary comments about John McCain’s war record have denied they are part of the group, the Guardian has learned.

A number of people were named as members of “Veterans for Trump” on Trump’s election website. “These veterans have pledged their support to Mr Trump in the primary, and they will be advocating for him,” a press release said.

But when the Guardian contacted several claimed Veterans for Trump members on Friday, three said they had never heard of the organisation and had not signed up as members.

    how many several (hundreds?) did they have to contact to find THREE who’d claim having no affiliation with Trump Coalition? do they say such but still agree mcInsane is a treasonous POS?
    enquiring minds want to know (lmao).

    PS.. it is KNOWN he went to Syria to show support for terrorists but he’s a possible presidential candidate exactly HOW?! this is no doubt good reason to review ALL “presidential pardons” as potentially criminal acts to REVOKE, as well as reviewing all of DC’s voting records trying to pass unConstitutional crap for charging them with treason, AND same charges being applied for swearing oath to izrahell..
    aint gonna be my fault if they’re ALL found guilty and hanged, but I might cheer when!

    Why did the “Guardian” contact specific individuals to verify the statements of Trump´s campaign managers ? Does the Guardian wish to discredit Trump´s charge against McCain, in order to maintain the farce that John McCain was a VietNam war hero?
    Snitching for the enemy did not qualify comrade McCain for “war hero” status.

    This is most curious. Donald Trump speaks the truth without realizing it, and the media freaks out, but yet they don’t know the truth either. They just have themselves convinced that they are knowers of all things, or maybe almost all things, wherein their friends fill in the gaps of knowledge. Or something.

    Then Trump reaches out to vets whereupon a British paper pounces. Clever? Yep — clever as their American counterparts. Why did they jump into something they don’t understand? It would seem that the Brits have the same nonexistant knowledge.

    So Trump more or less modifies his statement, while the commentators reinforce theirs. The chatterboxes have not modified, researched, or confirmed anything, and remain in the same fog. It’s like they are all hypnotized. What is so difficult about going over old records? They will be so sorry in the end when they find out how they voluntarily threw themselves under Jail Bird McCain’s bus.

    It seems like Trump is also unaware, which is understandable since he is primarily focused on business. He is quickly learning the strange ways of politics. If he assigns two or three researchers to the McCain myth and they get to the bottom of it one way or another, he will have the last laugh. And the media will remain in a fog.

    Suspicious how that could happen. Trumps comment aside, McCain’s war record is what was incendiary on his first carrier. And 60 American jets.
