“I THINK WE CAN SEE THERE’S A PATTERN IN DONALD TRUMP THAT’S ANTI-FEMALE. HE’S BEEN SO VULGAR WITH HISPANIC AND FEMALE VOTERS. WOMEN AND COUNTRY DESERVE BETTER THAN TRUMP.”

FORMER WHITE HOUSE DIRECTOR OF MEDIA AFFAIRS
(JANUARY 2017 – AUGUST 2018)
THE TRUMP FAMILY HAS NO RECORD OF MILITARY SERVICE IN 5 GENERATIONS, 2 WORLD WARS, AND OVER 150 YEARS.
[…] How many of the Trump family has served in the US Armed Forces? None, nada, zero……In fact, the Trump men have had a reputation for avoiding military service. Friedrich Trump- Is Donald Trump’s grandfather. When he realized he was close to the age of compulsory military service in the Bavarian army, he emigrated to the United States. After making his money off of the gold miners headed to the Yukon, he returned to Germany to get married. When authorities found that he had emigrated when young to avoid fulfilling his military service, he lost his Bavarian citizenship; he and his family returned to the United States. Frederick Christ Trump Sr. – Is Donald Trump’s father. Trump was investigated by a U.S. Senate committee for wartime profiteering (1954), and by the U.S. Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division for civil rights violations (1973). Trump’s reputation as a landlord inspired a critical song by tenant and folk singer Woody Guthrie. For decades after World War II Trump told friends and family that his family was of Swedish origin, to avoid confrontation with the largely Jewish tenant population living in his rental properties. He had three sons; Frederick Christ Trump Jr., Donald Trump, and Robert Trump, none of which served in the military. Donald is famous for taking multiple deferments, because of bone spurs. He has argued that his time at the New York Military Academy should count for something. Let’s keep in mind he was there from the age of 13 to 18, so middle school and high school. His father sent him to the Military Academy “to straighten him out” because he was a bit of a problem child. While at school, he was removed from a position as a company commander and placed into a position on the administrative staff (he will also argue that he was “promoted”). but it was actually because of his ineffectiveness as a leader and manager. Donald’s Sons have not served or do I expect them to ever do so […]
