Trump always wants to have the last word. Whether or not that last word is correct matters a whole lot less to him, however. That’s why he blew it at the candidate forum on military issues on board the USS Intrepid.
Rachel Fredericks specialized in aviations operations in the Marine Corps. She lost two friends to suicide, and she herself has post-traumatic stress disorder. During the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America Commander-in-Chief Forum Wednesday night, Fredericks asked Trump what he was going to do to stop 20 veterans a day from killing themselves.
“Actually, it’s 22,” Trump replied. “It’s almost impossible to conceive that this is happening in our country.” Of course, even some cursory research showed that Fredericks was correct. Trump has some innate need to argue, whether or not he’s correct. Especially when it’s a woman that he’s talking with!
