CVA Condemns Donald Trump’s Disgraceful Attacks on Senator McCain’s Military Service and Record on VA Reform
Senator McCain Served With Honor and Has Been A Leader In The Fight To Fix the VA
Arlington, Va. – In response to Donald Trump’s disrespectful and blatantly false attacks against Senator McCain’s military service and record on VA reform, Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) CEO Pete Hegseth issued the following statement on behalf of CVA:
“Donald Trump’s attacks against Senator McCain today are the height of arrogance and reveal that he has no understanding of what our Vietnam POWs endured and the honor they displayed during their captivity – Senator McCain among them. A man who received four student deferments to avoid service in Vietnam has absolutely no credibility to attack someone like John McCain, who volunteered to serve his country and suffered 5 ½ years of torture as a result.
