Donald Trump will have the gall to stand in front of Mount Rushmore on Saturday, standing in front of American citizens and praising the military for political gain. A group of military veterans, however, aren’t buying into Trump’s show of fake patriotism.

VoteVets.org, a political action committee of military veterans, has released a new political ad sure to make the Trump administration cringe. The ad focuses on the tale of Benedict Arnold and how his name has become synonymous with traitors to the military. Now, the ad says, there’s a new name for a Benedict Arnold.
‘Now there’s a new traitor sullying those hallowed Army grounds, and no one has betrayed those in uniform like Donald Trump.’
Eventually, Trump’s pandering to Russian President Vladimir Putin was going to catch up with him. Now, just ahead of the 2020 election, it’s caught up to him in a big way. The news that Russia was offering bounties on the heads of U.S. soldiers, which prompted no action from the current commander-in-chief, is not sitting well with Americans, and most specifically not with veterans. For all of Trump’s posturing on his love for the military, the flag, the National Anthem, and the Fourth of July, his patriotism is a convenience, meant to help him win elections but easily shed for political gain.
‘This July Fourth, Benedict Arnold can step aside, because Benedict Donald is America’s number one traitor.’
Twitter responded in a big way to the damning new ad. Read some of their comments below:
