Washington (CNN) A good Illinois Democrat who was seriously injured in Iraq derisively referred to Leader Donald Trump’s draft deferments right after Trump called Democrats “treasonous” because of not clapping during his State from the Union speech.
Duckworth, an Army veteran who else lost her legs while offering in Iraq, appeared to be referencing Trump’s draft deferments. Trump received 5 draft deferments throughout the Vietnam Battle, and on one occasion, Trump received a deferment
because of bone spurs.
Upon Monday, Trump called out Democrats’ behavior at his speech a week ago.
“They had been like death and un-American. Un-American. Somebody said, ‘Treasonous. ‘ I am talking about, yeah, I guess, why not, ” Trump said, adding, “Can we contact that treason? Why not. ”
That isn’t the first time Duckworth has pointed out Trump’s draft deferments. Last month, the lady brought it up on the Senate ground.
“I spent my entire adult living looking out for the well-being, the training, the particular equipping of the troops for who I was responsible. I will not be lectured about what our military needs with a five-deferment draft dodger, ” Duckworth said at the time.
