One of the pillars of Donald Trump’s campaign and GOP candidates, in general, is that he talked a lot about how he was a big supporter of the U.S. military and often praised the sacrifices made by men and women in uniform. That’s why it’s rather sad, though not too much of a surprise, to find out that Trump can’t tell the difference between a Coast Guard uniform and an Air Force uniform.
The organization VoteVets recently tweeted the transcript of a conversation where Trump referred to a member of the Air Force as a member of the Coast Guard.
Unsuprisingly, many people on Twitter were frustrated with the Commander-In-Chief’s inability to to distinguish between various branches of the service. A few also expressed annoyance that Trump, rather than simply admitting he was wrong and apologizing, simply claimed that he knew he was talking to a member of the Air Force despite making frequent references to the Coast Guard.
