What a ridiculous article. Just another CNN hen peckin’ and poopin’.
We have troops who volunteer in the most dangerous career in order to keep our country safe – risking their lives every day for our country while getting paid small wages and then we have sports figures drawing millions in pay to run up and down a field of dirt chasing some piece of something in order to win a game with thousands cheering in the stands – and this reporter is peckin’ about their military wages.
Does CNN think they are being paid too much? I don’t see CNN making any noise about all of those people running up and down the sports fields making way too much money.
We have to recognize that CNN is against our country and have been participating with the liberals and Obama in this Russian investigation to try to remove the President from office – so they will never stop.
Just dismiss this as just more ragging CNN chicken sh** fake news.
Trump misleads about military pay raises again
By Kate Sullivan, CNN
CNN’s Kevin Liptak contributed to this report.
President Donald Trump incorrectly told troops in Iraq on Wednesday that he gave them their first pay raise in more than 10 years — a falsehood he has repeatedly told.
Speaking to troops at Al Asad Air Base during his surprise visit to Iraq, Trump told troops: “You protect us. We are always going to protect you. And you just saw that, ’cause you just got one of the biggest pay raises you’ve ever received. … You haven’t gotten one in more than 10 years. More than 10 years. And we got you a big one. I got you a big one. I got you a big one.”
In fact, military pay has increased every year for more than three decades. It was raised 2.4% in 2018 and then 2.6% in the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act. The 2.6% pay raise is the largest in the past 9 years.
The President and first lady quietly swept into Iraq on Wednesday to pay a holiday visit to US troops — the first trip Trump has made to a war zone.
“They had plenty of people that came up, they said, ‘You know, we could make it smaller. We could make it 3%, we could make it 2%, we could make it 4%,'” Trump told the troops about the latest pay raise. “I said, ‘No. Make it 10%. Make it more than 10%.'”
“Cause it’s been a long time, it’s been more than 10 years. Been more than 10 years, that’s a long time,” Trump said, repeating the false claim.
When the President came into office the Military was in shambles because Obama tried to destroy the Military and our country. The VA, the equipment was outdated, and he removed God from the Military. Obama made them wear high heel shoes for punishment during training – this tells you how twisted Obama’s mind was.
