Close to 750 military family members, together with Gold Star families, have signed an open letter to voice their support for President Donald Trump, in the face of attacks in the mainstream media on his patriotism and how he cares for the military. In your face, Atlantic.
The letter, which was obtained by Breitbart News, includes the following:
Mr. President, there are a whole bunch of hundreds of army spouses on this nation who’re compelled into the silent majority. However we do assist you. We don’t consider the lies and rumors that others strive laborious to unfold. We stand tall with you.
Those who signed the letter include Gold Star families, military spouses, military moms, military little kids, and veterans, according to the authors. The letter picked up over 700 signatures in just three days, and has continued to add more after the signature deadline, they said.
In a statement that came with the letter, the military families said they had decided to write it after witnessing left-wing military spouses appearing to speak for all of them collectively. Here’s what they said:
In the last few weeks, a false narrative has been perpetuated regarding the military community’s perception of its Commander in Chief. As conservative military Spouses, Veterans, and Family Members we refuse to remain silent in our ardent support for President Trump knowing that he holds the military community, of which we are a part, in great esteem.
Oftentimes those voices who are the loudest attempt to convince everyone they speak for all, but we are here to stand up and be counted amongst those who refuse to have our voices silenced.
You can read the letter with all the names of those who signed here.
This letter of support for the Commander-in-Chief comes after yet another “anonymously-sourced” report from the progressive rag the Atlantic that claimed the president mocked fallen service members. Even the author or the piece started to walk the story back when he said that his source may have been wrong. May have been wrong? You don’t trash the president using anonymous sources. I don’t think there’s a person reading this who believes there even are anonymous sources who told the Atlantic author this, because everyone who was there, including John Bolton, who has a beef with Trump, all said that it’s not true, the president never insulted our fallen soldiers. And anyone who knows anything about Trump knows that he adores our men and women in the military. This was just another left-wing hit job to harm Trump in November. It came from the lowest of the low.
Since that report, a number of veterans have come out to show their support for President Trump.
We reported back on September 5 that almost 700 veterans wrote a letter stating that their support for this Commander-in-Chief remains steadfast because of his past actions for supporting the military and ending foreign wars that before him never ended.
President Trump responded to the open letter in a tweet: “Thank you! As we get closer and closer to the November 3rd Election, and as my poll numbers rocket up, the attacks get more and more vicious. I love our HEROES!”
