Donald Trump’s victory is still sending shock waves throughout the galaxy. The record turnout for Trump among veterans was astounding and liberal pundits are reeling as the final numbers were just revealed. Fed up with Obama’s ongoing BS and not wanting the same antics from another Democratic president, the number of veterans that came out in full force to throw their support behind Trump and vote during the election was incredible.
Bob Carey, director of Military Affairs and Veterans Engagement for the Republican National Committee, joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Wednesday’s Breitbart News Daily to talk about the record support of military veterans for Donald Trump during the 2016 election.
Carey said the 2016 election had “the highest veteran voter participation rate that [he had] ever seen,” adding, “And I went back to 1976 with the polling data.”
“Donald Trump crushed the veteran vote. They turned out record numbers for him. He had the greatest margin of victory among veteran voters, 61 percent to 34 percent. That translated into 4.8 million more votes for him. Almost two million more veterans showed up at the polls this election than 2012, despite the fact that we have about half-a-million less veterans because the World War II generation is leaving us,” he noted. “Seventeen percent of the Donald Trump voters were veterans. They only make up nine percent of the population.”
This is exactly who our veterans deserve to be leading them, a man that believes in them and wants them to have the care that they deserve. That is why they turned out in record numbers for Trump and not Clinton, they knew that under Hillary they would receive the same sub-par care they have.
Trump cares about our veterans and wants to do what is best for those who sacrifice for their country every day. I am sure that with Trump at the head things will finally change for the better.
