Donald Trump is a coward. After dodging the draft to go to Vietnam, Trump now thinks he can run a presidential campaign and attack the status of John McCain as a war hero.

During a recent speaking engagement, Donald Trump remarked that he doubts whether John McCain should actually be regarded as a war hero. Instead, Trump said that he prefers soldiers who aren’t captured and disparaged McCain’s record as a student.

Trump has no intention of apologizing for his comments or pulling back in the campaign. In fact, he thinks that his criticism of John McCain will help him in the polls.
