Trump Tells Story About U.S. Troops Being Surrounded Nazis, Saying of Their Enemies: ‘Poor Bastards’

‘Our soldiers gave the last full measure of devotion for the true unity of our nation’


TRUMP: “A generation later, the army returned to Europe and embarked upon a great crusade with knives and rifles in hand. They scaled the cliffs of Normandy, the 101st Airborne leapt into the danger from above, illuminated only by enemy flares, explosions and burning aircraft. They threw back the Nazi empire with lightning of their own from the turrets of Sherman tanks and the barrels of the M1 rifle. In the darkness of the Battle of the Bulge, with Nazis on every side, one soldier is reported to have said, 'they’ve got us surrounded again, the poor bastards.' (applause) Outnumbered, American warriors fought through the bunkers of Pork Chop Hill and held the line of civilization in Korea. In the elephant grass of Vietnam, the 1st Cavalry made a stand amid a forest consumed in flame with enemies at every single turn.”
