Letter: Trump has no business handing out war medals

Trump has no business handing out war medals

How many people were thinking the same thing as I was when President Trump presented the Medal of Honor to James McCloughan, a Vietnam survivor who risked his life to save others? I was thinking Trump is a man who was a draft dodger by receiving five deferments during that conflict. He did all he could to avoid serving. He said John McCain was a war hero only because he was captured, and he did not like men who were captured.

Now we see Trump standing next to McCloughan and acting like he was entitled to present this honor to this war hero. As Prince Abdullah said, “No shame, no humanity, no morals and no principles.”
