The former US President Donald Trump on Sunday lauded the heroism of veterans of the Vietnam War who have died in battle, despite the fact that they were the ones who fought in Vietnam.
“I’ve never seen a more inspiring group of people.
They’re doing something that I’ve never even seen in my life,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Cincinnati, Ohio.”
They’re standing up for their country, standing up and saying we have to do something about this.
We’ve got to get the vets out of the military.
And they’re standing by, and they’re going to do it.
And we’re going have to get them out of there.”
The President said veterans are “some of the bravest people you’ll ever meet” and they deserve the respect they are getting.
“We’re going through some tough times, but we’re also doing great things,” Trump told supporters.
“It’s like a war.
We’re losing it all.
We have to win it.
It’s like it’s a war.”
The Republican nominee was speaking at a rally in South Carolina, where he defended his comments in August that he would “absolutely” make a pardon for those who have served in the military, saying he doesn’t want to “get into a war of words” with veterans.
“You know, you’ve got some veterans out there who are very angry.
And I’ve been in wars that you’ve never heard of, and I’ve always said that I don’t want a war,” Trump explained.”
So, you know, we’re not going to have a war with these people, but, you look at the vets, they’re very emotional.
They feel the pain.
I’ve seen that on television.
You know, they’ve been there for eight years, they feel the agony.
They’ve been through a lot, but they’re doing great, and the vets are very proud of them.”
Trump said that when it comes to veterans, “they are some of the best, the most honorable people that you’re going in front of.
And so, you can’t put them in a bad light.
But, you have to respect them.”
He added: “I’ll be doing that.”
The comments came amid an outcry from veterans’ groups and Democrats who say the President’s comments have been divisive and divisive for many veterans and that he should have never said such things in the first place.

Trump has made the comments on a number of occasions, including one time in the last week where he called the American Legion a “disgrace”.
He has also repeatedly used the phrase “the most honorable Americans” in reference to Vietnam veterans.
In response, some veterans’ rights groups said Trump’s remarks were wrong and that the American Veterans Act, passed by Congress in 2017, should be amended to address the issue.
The VA is currently looking at ways to change that legislation, the Office of Inspector General said in a report.
A report released by the VA on Monday said that while the bill does not specifically address Trump’s comment, it should be changed to address his comments.
The report found that the VA should create a system to report veterans who have received dishonorable discharges for their service in the armed forces, or those who are deemed “a flight risk,” as a direct result of the comments made by the President.
The bill also says that the Department of Veterans Affairs must create a mechanism to determine whether veterans are being treated unfairly in the Veterans Benefits Administration, and that there must be an independent investigation into the comments of the President, according to the report.
The Veterans Affairs Committee also voted on Monday to release the report into Trump’s statements, and on Tuesday, the Senate passed the VA Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act of 2017, which would establish a process for VA to investigate and discipline those who make false claims about VA.

I want to take a stand for veterans, to hold the President accountable, and to make sure we don’t have another President who tries to hurt their families, their country.
I will not stand idly by as we
