You Will Not Believe What Trump Said About How He has Sacrificed for His Country

(Before It's News)

Standing on a stage in front of America, Khizr Khan slammed Donald Trump, saying his son sacrificed his life for the Constitution. “You’ve sacrificed nothing,” he said directly to Trump from that stage. Donald Trump has responded to the speech and of all the ways to respond to something like that, he took what was arguably the most Donald Trump route possible.

Speaking with George Stephanopoulos, Trump seemed to try to empathize with Khan before going on to say that Khan’s wife had nothing to say and may not have been allowed to say anything (he cites “several people” who have written that claim because sure why not), as though that might be reason enough to completely disregard what Khan had to say. Stephanopoulos asked him if he had sacrifices, and this happened:

Pressed by Stephanopoulos to name the sacrifices he’d made for his country, Trump said: “I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard. I’ve created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures. I’ve had tremendous success. I think I’ve done a lot.”

Just so we’re clear, that is Donald Trump saying his years spent as a business man means he has made sacrifices like the type Khan was referring to. A man gave his life for his country while serving overseas, and Donald Trump believes that his efforts to make himself rich are comparable. One soldier made the ultimate sacrifice and one egomaniac gained money and influence. That’s his argument.

Getting richer is a pretty big sacrifice, you guys. And only someone as great as Donald Trump is willing to make that sacrifice.

He did add that he has donated millions to veterans groups, but we know how rarely that seems to pan out. But, by and large, Donald Trump believes that doing things that make yourself richer are sacrifices equal to giving up your life for your country.
