MADISON — This morning, in a cruel attack on our veterans, Donald Trump suggested veterans suffering from PTSD are not “strong.” The comments are just the most recent of Trump’s hateful rhetoric about veterans. In the span of the campaign Trump has lashed out against gold star families and claimed that Senator John McCain was not a war hero because he was captured.

And for months, Senator Johnson has stayed silent, content with Trump demeaning and insulting veterans. Rather than condemn Trump, Sen. Johnson has condoned him over and over again. Johnson has even said he trusted Donald Trump as commander-in-chief and trusted him with the nuclear codes. So the question is: how can Senator Johnson continue to support a possible commander-in-chief who insults veterans? Will he consider pulling his endorsement of Trump? And if not, why?

“For months Senator Johnson has stayed silent as Donald Trump insulted veterans and their families. Johnson keeps reminding voters that he cares more about staying in Washington than he does about veterans. Wisconsinites want to know how can Sen. Johnson support a candidate for president who insults veterans?” — Harry Hartfield, spokesperson for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin.
