Trump Vs. The Chump

The Donald Says He’ll Pay For Fallen Warrior Burials Cut By Obama’s Shutdown

From Clash Daily:

Billionaire Donald Trump has offered to pick up paying a “death gratuity” to families of four soldiers and a Marine who died in combat in Afghanistan over the weekend after the Pentagon announced it is suspending immediate payments to families of combat fatalities because of the government shutdown.

When service men and women are killed in combat, the Pentagon normally pays families $100,000 to cover funerals and the cost of families to travel to receive the remains of their loved ones.

The Pentagon suspended those payments after the government shutdown, stirring outrage on Capitol Hill.

The House is expected to take up a bill today that would have the payments resume.

In the meantime, Trump has offered to step in, and other private groups have said they will also lend a hand.

UPDATE: The House on Wednesday unanimously passed a bill that would restore the payment, according to The Hill. The bill must now be approved by the Senate and signed by President Obama before it can take effect.

—oo—

$100 says the Chump won’t sign it even if passed by the Senate because he vowed to veto “any” piecemeal budget amendments.

I find it deplorable that every Lefty troll wraps themselves in the Flag while proclaiming their love of country and supporters of the military then pissing on the troops when the camera is turned off.  

In the meantime, this administration can spend millions to barricade our National Parks and Monuments.  My head wants to explode.

Kudos to Trump for embarrassing the Chump and the Left et al.

    What would REALLY be nice, if the goddamned morons who keep voting these democrat asshats into office, realize just WHICH political party is the REAL children here. And, REMEMBER that next November. Good for Trump. He is an asshole at times, too, but I see NO democrat offering to step up as Trump has.

    They only started wrapping themselves in the flag when it became hazardous to their health to piss on our soldiers.
    I remember Viet Nam.

    The real question is this: will Hairball Reid sign the bill and give it to 0bonga, or will the hairball continue to probe his own scrotum and fling more poo.

    The Resident, et al cannot have private citizens doing ANYTHING that will help these folks as it will highlight that the national government really isn’t necessary in so darned many things.

    Thanx for the update, Hardnox.

    Good for Trump! These families deserve better from the government. It’s ok for our guys to keep fighting and lose lives, while DC’s on shutdown, but to not pay the death benefits, is just the absolute lowest. Without cussing, I’m running out of words to describe just how disgusting they are.

      Fisher House has stepped up to the plate. They will be reimbursed once the shutdown is over.

      The spigot for Foreign Aid is open however. It is difficult to keep a civil tongue these days.
