Donald Trump also lashed out at the shameless liars and sleazeballs in the liberal media.
On Tuesday Crooked Hillary Clinton continued to attack Donald Trump on his $5.6 million in veterans donations.
Clinton said Trump does not deserve much credit for the donations.
(Hillary and her husband have only given $70,000 to veterans from their controversial foundation.)
Hillary Clinton’s campaign on Tuesday will launch a multi-pronged communications effort to trash Donald Trump’s record on veterans’ issues and undermine the billionaire’s news conference touting the money he’s raised for veterans’ causes in recent months.
The campaign will host a national press call, release statements and unleash surrogates in key battleground states armed with talking points and opposition research to highlight Trump’s past disparaging remarks about veterans, his Veterans Administration reform plans, and his months-long refusal to fully account for the funds he raised in January for veterans’ charities, according to plans the Clinton campaign shared with CNN.
The plan is the Clinton campaign’s most targeted effort yet to disrupt a Trump-organized event that the billionaire hopes will earn him hours of free — and largely positive — media time. And it comes on the heels of the Clinton camp’s week-long effort last week to knock Trump off-message and discredit the presumptive Republican nominee by hammering him over a series of comments he made about the 2008 financial crisis.
“In January, Donald Trump skipped a debate to hold an event at which he boasted they had raised $6 million for veterans charities and organizations, including a $1 million personal donation from Trump himself,” the Clinton campaign said in a statement. “After securing the headlines he wanted, it became clear that Trump had not actually delivered on his claims. Under mounting pressure after months of dodging questions about where the money had gone, lying, and failing to follow through on his own $1 million promise, he is set to finally answer those questions.”
The statement added, “Trump will surely brag, as he always does, about his supposed generosity and appreciation for our veterans, but nobody should be fooled by this stunt, only completed under immense pressure. The truth is, throughout this campaign and his entire career, he’s shown veterans an incredible amount of disrespect.”
Hillary Clinton has never given veterans a dime.
