Allegations of former President Donald Trump’s dislike for wounded military personnel have resurfaced, drawing attention to his interactions with Army Captain Luis Avila and General Mark Milley. Here’s the whole story.
The article detailed an incident during General Milley’s 2019 welcome ceremony. Trump reportedly objected to Captain Luis Avila, a severely wounded soldier making public appearances.
The War Hero
Avila, a war hero who had completed five combat tours, suffered severe injuries, including losing a leg in an IED attack in Afghanistan, two heart attacks, two strokes, and brain damage.
Represented the Heroism
Despite his injuries, Avila was chosen to sing “God Bless America” at the event, as members believed that he “represented the heroism, sacrifice, and dignity of wounded soldiers.”
Is Trump a Hypocrite?
However, Trump’s reaction appeared to be at odds with this sentiment.
After Avila’s performance, he reportedly congratulated the soldier but later questioned General Milley’s decision to include him.
No One Wants to See That
Trump had asked, “Why do you bring people like that here? No one wants to see that, the wounded.”
Ban From Public Events
Trump had allegedly instructed Milley not to allow Avila to “appear in public again.”
Another incident highlighted in the profile involved General Milley attempting to explain the concept of war crimes to Trump.
Going to Die Anyway
The discussion arose when Milley reportedly tried to “intervene” in military legal proceedings after Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher, now retired, faced charges under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
“He slit the throat of a wounded prisoner,” Milley said, to which Trump allegedly responded that the prisoner “was going to die anyway.”
Military Ethics and Laws
“Mr. President, we have military ethics and laws about what happens in battle. We can’t do that kind of thing. It’s a war crime,” Milley replied.
Combat Soldiers Are All Killers
But Trump responded by suggesting that combat soldiers are all “just killers” anyway.
This Is Not the First Time
These allegations are not isolated incidents, as Trump has faced previous accusations of displaying insensitivity toward military members.
Cemetery Filled With Losers
In 2018, he reportedly canceled a planned visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery, where numerous U.S. soldiers are buried, allegedly citing his reluctance to visit because the cemetery was “filled with losers.”
During the same trip, he was also reported to have referred to nearly 2,000 deceased marines as “suckers.”
Twitter Users Expressed Their Views
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.
One Twitter user wrote, “A bold statement indeed, particularly from someone who hasn’t walked the path of military service.”
Trump Doesn’t Care About Them
Another user added, “This is why I will never understand how vets can support him. He doesn’t care about them, it would be nice if they would stop voting against their own interests.”
A third user commented, “This is the person they want as our commander in Chief! Wow… Absolutely ridiculous. Shame on all of his complicit MAGA Cult!!!”
Maybe Milley Is Lying?
A fourth user added, “That’s not true. Not a Trump fan and not a never-Trump-er either. I’ll call it like I see it. That’s nonsense. Judge a man by his actions, not by what others say. And based on this video, I’d say he was very supportive of this wounded vet.”
