Trump: US Generals Have Been ‘Reduced to Rubble’
Donald Trump slammed the military on Wednesday, saying that the majority of the American military leadership has been “reduced to rubble” under President Barack Obama.
“The generals under Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have not been successful,” the GOP presidential nominee said at a military-focused forum. “Under the leadership of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton the generals have been reduced to rubble, reduced to a point where it is embarrassing for our country.”
The Hill reports:
NBC anchor Matt Lauer pressed Trump on the point, asking if he had lost faith entirely in the U.S. military.
Trump tempered his response to some degree in the follow-up.
“I have great faith in the military, great faith in certain of the commanders, but no faith in Hillary Clinton or the leadership,” Trump said. “She’s been there for 30 years, we need change, we have to have it.”
