A team of veterans opposed to President Donald Trump unveiled a new video calling him out over stories that the U.S. govt knew the Russian armed service paid out bounties to Afghan militants for killing American troopers.
On Friday, The New York Periods noted that Trump was briefed on the situation in March, but took no action against Russia. To the opposite, Trump explained he would like to invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to the next G-7 meeting in September.
Trump said on Twitter that he was not briefed about the alleged bounties, named the Times “fake news” and claimed “nobody’s been tougher on Russia” than his administration.
VoteVets ripped into him.
“Putin owns Donald Trump,” the business wrote on Twitter, alongside with the #TRE45SON hashtag that went viral above the weekend. The group also launched a new online video:
“Intelligence reports on his desk. He suggests nothing to his learn. Usually takes no action to protect us,” the voiceover stated. “If you are likely to act like a traitor, you really do not get to thank us for our service.”
