Trump Says Making Up for Not Going to Vietnam by Bankrupting the Nation

Cranking up the military budget makes up for it President of the Empire feels

Too chicken to face down the Viet Cong, or the Pentagon

In an interview with Piers Morgan on Wednesday, President Trump discussed his reasons for not serving in the US military, saying he was “never a fan” of the Vietnam War. He also argued he is “making up for” that by greatly increasing US military spending.

“I think I make up for it right now – look, $700 billion I gave last year, and this year $716 billion. And I think I’m making up for it rapidly because we’re rebuilding our military at a level its never seen before.”

Trump went on to suggest that he would have been “honored” to have served in some other war besides Vietnam, though naturally he never did so, and the pushes for unsustainable military spending are meant to make up for that.

That’s potentially a risky position to take, of course, especially as he’s suggested at times that the world in general is spending too much on wars and militaries, and that many could be better spent elsewhere.

Trump’s talk of spending money elsewhere is true, of course, and potentially could drive talks with Russia and China. It would, however, be difficult for him to do so while presenting the Pentagon’s record budgets as a sort of direct payola for him getting out of the draft.

The guys who died in and outta Nam , and their families and girlfriends, weren’t ” big fans of Nam ” either – Ashole. The first time I saw that 100 yard long Black Wall in Washington – dropped me to my knees !

Trump wants war with Iran for the benefit of Israhell.

The draft dodging personal coward and buffoon, can pick up an M-16 and take point in the invasion of Iran for the benefit of pedophillic Russian Expat & spawn Non Semitic Khazazrian outcaste from Steppes of Russia.

His American hating bimbo Israhell firster daughter and the Anti-American Khazarian outcaste she married, can come right behind daddy, followed by Bolton and Pompeo.
