Duckworth Rips Trump as a Draft Dodger

Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), who lost both of her legs during an explosion in Iraq while serving in the U.S. Army, blasted President Trump as a “five-deferment draft dodger” during her remarks on the Senate floor, WTVR reports.

Said Duckworth: “I spent my entire adult life looking out for the well-being, the training, the equipping of the troops for whom I was responsible. I will not be lectured about what our military needs by a five-deferment draft dodger.”

She added: “I have a message for Cadet Bone Spurs: If you cared about our military, you’d stop baiting Kim Jong-un into a war that could put 85,000 American troops — and millions of innocent civilians — in danger.”
