    Donald Trump rang in the Army’s 241st birthday in unusual fashion on Tuesday — by calling attention to theft of government funds by American soldiers in Iraq.

    “Iraq, crooked as hell. How about bringing baskets of money — millions and millions of dollars — and handing it out?,” Trump said at an evening rally. “I want to know who were the soldiers that had that job, because I think they’re living very well right now, whoever they may be.”

    Unless he has evidence, this is a shame.

    He has high support form troops. This may hurt him.

    He claims he was talking about Iraqi troops. Whether or not that is true, it is without a doubt true that US troops stole money in Iraq and were tried and convicted of it. It would be naive to believe it didn't happen.


    " Charboneau contributed to thefts by U.S. military personnel of at least $15 million worth of fuel since the start of the U.S. war in Afghanistan. And eventually she became one of at least 115 enlisted personnel and military officers convicted since 2005 of committing theft, bribery, and contract-rigging crimes valued at $52 million during their deployments in Afghanistan and Iraq, according to a comprehensive tally of court records by the Center for Public Integrity."

    And what is the point of Trump bringing up something that happened 11 years ago during the Bush administration?

    I have no idea. He says he was talking about the Iraqis. Could be.
