“He’s a war hero because he was captured—I like people who weren’t captured, okay?” Trump said, provoking the ire of numerous Republicans. Trump has yet to apologize for the for one of the most ignorant, hateful comments ever uttered by a US Presidential candidate.
“I think he may owe an apology to the families of those who have sacrificed in conflict and those who have undergone the prison experience in serving their country,” said McCain.
A 5-time draft dodger, Trump himself did not serve in the military. The VFW called his comments “despicable.”
