Just keep talking.
Donald Trump did not serve in the military, but according to a report, the Republican presidential candidate and multibillionaire business tycoon said in a forthcoming book that he still “always felt that I was in the military” because he attended a military boarding school and “dealt with those people.”
According to an upcoming biography and interview excerpts shared with The New York Times, Trump said that his five years at the New York Military Academy provided him with “more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military.”
“After the Vietnam War, all those military academies lost ground because people really disrespected the military,” Trump told the author in an excerpt shared with the Times. “They weren’t sending their kids to military school. It was a whole different thing, but in those days — 1964 I graduated — that was a very good thing or tough thing, and it was a real way of life at military academy.”
So much hardship it’s a wonder he survived.
@TheRickWilson Makes sense now. McCain being a POW. Trump enduring fancy prep school. Same thing really. BOTH are heros!
