Trump needs to re­spect our mil­i­tary

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

Don­ald Trump claims to be a big mil­i­tary ad­vo­cate and even planned a pa­rade to feed his ego while of­ten crit­i­ciz­ing Pres­i­dent Obama’s mil­i­tary record.

Af­ter al­most two years in of­fice, though, he hasn’t vis­ited the troops in Iraq or Afghanistan and didn’t visit Ar­ling­ton Ceme­tery on Vet­er­ans Day. While in Paris to cel­e­brate 100 years of the end ofWWI, he failed to even visit the Amer­i­can graves.

Obama vis­ited the troops in Iraq af­ter only three months in of­fice dur­ing his first term. He also vis­ited Ar­ling­ton Ceme­tery ev­ery Vet­er­ans Day while in of­fice. That’s a leader.
