    And again... so many military have died under trump it is sad and a disgrace and no one seem to be outraged. Two more died run over by own military truck.. when will the blood shed end. News media cover this more please, these men and women are dying unnecessarily and too often. But the right wanted to destroy hillary for one man death in benghazi. The usa flag is not worthy of any honor or pledge.
