Veterans Rally on Capitol Hill Urging Sen. John McCain to Revoke Endorsement of Trump
U.S. military veterans (including Crystal Cravens, Army, Sergeant, pictured) delivered 100,000 signatures on a petition targeting Sen. John McCain, urging the senator and other GOP leaders to withdraw their endorsement of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. The action came on the heels of Trump’s unrelenting attack on the Gold Star family of Humayun Khan, a U.S. soldier who died in Iraq.
“As an Operation Enduring Freedom veteran, I’m appalled at Trump’s disrespect for military families and his use of veterans as political props. In the army, I swore to protect the rights of every American. But Donald Trump wants to divide us, and his actions will put us in danger,” explained O’Brien in his petition on MoveOn.org. “If Republican leaders do not outright disavow Trump’s dangerous rhetoric, they are not only endorsing Donald Trump’s candidacy, but also his attacks on veterans.”
