Tester Statement on Trump Disparaging American War Heroes

U.S. Senator Jon Tester, Ranking Member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, released the following statement on reporting that President Donald Trump insulted, disparaged, and belittled Americans who lost their lives in war:

“Our nation’s fallen servicemembers gave their lives to defend the freedoms that all Americans, including the President, share today. This President’s attack on our men and women in uniform, and those who made the ultimate sacrifice, is offensive and deeply unbecoming of America’s commander in chief. It is a slap in the face of our servicemembers, veterans, and military families who have given everything to their country.”
