Donald Trump just slammed the American military, complaining the U.S. doesn’t “fight to win.”
“Win. We have to win. We have to start winning wars again. I have to say, when I was young, in high school and college, everybody used to say that we never lost a war. ‘We never lost a war.’ You remember. And now we never win a war. We never win. And we don’t fight to win.”
Trump added that the war in the Middle East has gone “nowhere. Actually, if you think about it, we’re less than nowhere.”
Trump attended a military academy, but never served in the armed forces. He received a total of five draft deferments in the Vietnam War, including one for bone spurs in his heels.
Trump has been previously criticized for being insensitive to the sacrifices made by service members and their families for the country: “You have sacrificed nothing and no one,” said Khizr Khan, the father of an American soldier killed in Iraq, at the Democratic National Convention last year.
