Al Baldasaro, a state Rep. from New Hampshire and former Marine Sgt., has a message for the "liberal media."
AL BALDASARO: For the record, I am a state representative from New Hampshire, ten years on the Veterans Affairs Committee, 22 years in the Marine Corps... What I want to clarify here, first of all, I would never, ever in a million years put my name on a candidate who did not from his heart, look me in the eye and tell me he is concerned about veterans. That is Donald Trump. I met him over a year ago.
I've been involved with many fundraisers, there are many scam artists out there -- he did the right thing by vetting those groups. You look at some of these groups giving 20 cents, 40 cents on the dollar, spending the rest for nice lavish trips. He gave 100%.
The liberal media is the only ones who have been calling me... I've been dealing with this stuff for years as a veterans' activist.
Stop using veterans as political pawns. You got a guy outside, McCoy. Go do a Google search on him, look at his Facebook. He's out there he has pictures with the Clintons. They are using veterans as political pawns, it must stop.
Donald Trump is doing this from the heart. You're all focused on the way he is raising money, and you're not looking at the 22 veterans who are killing each other every day.
You're not concerned about the thousands of veterans that are on waitlists. Look at his plan -- on Trump's website-- he talks about medical cards, he talks about fixing the VA, he talks about competition.
I think the liberal media --and I've been dealing with you for a long time-- Get your heads out of your butts and focus on the real issues.
