Tammy Duckworth Eviscerates Trump For His Foreign Policy 'Illiteracy'
Accusing Trump of putting the U.S. at risk of entering a "reckless, unauthorized war of his own making," Duckworth, a Democrat, lambasted the president for claiming that "all is well" on Wednesday, just a day after Iran's attacks on Iraqi bases housing U.S. troops.
"'All is well.' That's what Donald Trump said just hours after a dozen missiles were fired at two U.S. military bases last night," Duckworth said on Thursday. "That's what he said as our nation careens toward a reckless, unauthorized war of his own making—borne out of his illiteracy in matters ranging from foreign policy to common sense."
Noting that, unlike Duckworth, who lost both of her legs in 2004 while serving in Iraq, Trump has never "deigned to put on the uniform," the senator said she wanted to make "something clear to him: All is certainly NOT well when war is on the horizon just because you wanted to look like the toughest kid on the playground."
