Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram have banned former United States President Donald Trump from their platforms, but he still finds ways to stay in the public eye and be part of the political conversation.
Touting his support for America’s military, Trump posted a video on Rumble on Wednesday to recognize Veteran’s Day.
“On this Veteran’s Day, I’d like to pay tribute to all of those incredible people, and you are indeed incredible people, who serve so well and so strong and so powerfully in the United States armed forces,” Trump’s message begins.
Trump references the Biden Administration inadvertently by saying, “The last period of time has been very, very tough,” before promising, “[O]ur country will be back, we’ll be back stronger than ever.”
Trump previously questioned Biden’s leadership of military forces after what many referred to as a disastrous pull-out of Afghanistan.
The abrupt exit resulted in the deaths of 13 service members, in addition to the loss of more than a billion dollars worth of weaponry and infrastructure, the stranding of Americans and service animals in Afghanistan, and the alienation of key allies.
The New York Post reports that Trump’s assessment of Biden as Commander-in-Chief is that he should “resign in disgrace.”
Biden has had multiple conflicts with the military. In 2016, the Right Wing Tribune referred to Biden as “an arrogant SOB” after he said that servicemen were “stupid bastards” and referred to them as “a dull bunch…[who] must be slow…” because they did not clap when he thought they should have.
In recent months, Biden has received sharp criticism for seemingly disrespecting the military. In August, Biden repeatedly looked at his watch while military personnel removed slain service members from a plane at Dover Air Force Base in a solemn ceremony.
In September, top military leaders at the Pentagon contradicted statements released by the White House regarding several key aspects of America’s role and plans in the Middle East.
The Washington Post reports that “hundreds of thousands of troops” are resisting Biden’s vaccine mandate and that tension in the ranks is increasing.
While Trump posted a video on Rumble, many were happy to see President Biden commemorating Veteran’s Day by honoring fallen soldiers today at Arlington National Cemetery.
ABC News reports that the Biden Administration is expected to announce a plan to assist veterans who were exposed to burn pits and other contaminants while serving overseas.
