Just in from the Lincoln Project:
The Lincoln Project’s latest video, “Betrayed,” released today, lays bare the thoughts of former U.S Navy Seal Dan Barkhuff and his feelings towards the President. Many current and former American service members feel betrayed by Donald J. Trump. Navy Seal Barkhuff is just one story. We now know Trump received written briefings as early as 2019 outlining the conclusion that the Russian military had secretly offered and paid bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
Trump, through his cowardice, has put the U.S military and armed forces lives in danger. “Any commander-in-chief with a spine would be stomping the living shit out of Russians right now, diplomatically, economically or if necessary with the sort of asymmetric warfare they’re using to send our kids home in body bags,” Barkhuff says in the ad. “Mr. Trump, you’re either a coward who can’t stand up to an ex-KGB goon or you’re complicit,” he added.
