ABC News reports:
President Donald Trump called the news that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will not be facing any prison time a “complete disgrace” today, but that’s far from the harshest comment he’s had on the issue.
His most recent previous remark came on Oct. 16, when Trump declined to comment on the Bergdahl case, saying, “They’re setting up sentencing, so I’m not going to comment on him. But I think people have heard my comments in the past.”
Trump has also called for Bergdahl’s execution, saying he “should have been executed” and that “30 years ago he would have been shot.” “You probably can’t do it, but if I win I may just have him flown back in the middle of that place and dropped, right in the middle. Let them have him, let him have them. That’s cheaper than a bullet,” Trump said at an October 2015 campaign rally.
