A Veterans group just released an ad telling Donald Trump to act like a US President



A progressive veterans group has become so frustrated and disillusioned with President Donald Trump’s lack of action on campaign promises — such as setting up a 24-hour hotline to report problems with care from the Department of Veterans Affairs — that the group is personally attacking the POTUS.

The group has created a touching and powerful ad that it is now running on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, a news program the US President reportedly watches every morning.

In the ad, created by the group VoteVets, an Afghanistan War veteran who lost his leg in the war is doing squats on one leg in his garage.

“President Trump,” the veteran proclaim a voice-over. “I hear you watch the morning shows. Here’s what I do every morning. Look, you lost the popular vote, you’re having trouble drawing a crowd, and your approval rating keeps sinking. But kicking thousands of my fellow veterans off their health insurance by killing the Affordable Care Act and banning Muslims won’t help, and that’s not the America I sacrificed for.”

The ad then ends by noting that Donald Trump lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by nearly 3 million votes — a fact he is reportedly sore about.

“You want to be a legitimate President, sir?” the veteran says in the ad. “Then act like one.”

VoteVets Vice Chair and Navy veteran Peter Kauffmann says they chose the TV show to target because of what Donald Trump watches.

“Since the White House comment line is down, and Donald Trump hasn’t set up that veterans hotline he promised, we’re going to go where we know Donald Trump is listening – Morning Joe, and the other shows that he obsesses over,” Kauffmann said in a statement. “He’s going to hear the message of this ad again and again. We’re officially putting Mr. Trump on notice,” he said.
