Trump accuses US Soldiers of Stealing Iraqi Funds

By John Lee.

Donald Trump has accused US soldiers of stealing millions meant for the reconstruction of Iraq.

Describing Iraq as “crooked as hell,” the presumptive Republican nominee said:

“How about bringing baskets of money? Millions and millions of dollars and handing it out ... I want to know. Who are the soldiers that had that job? Because I think they’re living very well right now, whoever they may be.”

According to Politico, Trump "appeared to be referring to the many known instances in which members of the American military members skimmed U.S. government cash intended for reconstruction projects or otherwise engaged in theft or bribery".

    Trump is a hateful, divisive, ill-informed person. All the people I know agree and would never vote for him under any circumstances! Iraqi people are good folks just like most Americans. I wish your country good fortune and an end to the war there and in Syria.

    Am I reading this right? I wonder what companies owned by Trump the chump scammed money earmarked for reconstruction. This guy doesn't pay his bills and hes accusing soldiers of theft. This guy needs to get his foot out of his mouth and shove it up his ass because he doesn't have a clue about whats going on over there. How many trips has he made to go see for himself. What service did he serve in? Oh that's right daddy paid off everybody so that Donald Duck Trump doesn't have to serve his country. But he doesn't hesitate to steal their hard earned money for his own personal gains. Get out of politics Don Stick to pulling the handle on one of your quarter rides on the boardwalk.
