Trump attacks Blumenthal over his military service

Trump attacks Blumenthal over his military service

Trump also used Twitter to insist his support is stronger than ever, despite a report that some Republicans are weighing a 2020 presidential run without him.

Never in U.S.history has anyone lied or defrauded voters like Senator Richard Blumenthal.

Earlier Monday, Blumenthal appeared on CNN to express concern over the Department of Justice's probe into those leaking classified information.

Blumenthal came under criticism for remarks he made about having "served" in Vietnam despite never leaving the United States when was in the Marines.

"He cried like a baby and begged for forgiveness like a child", Trump continued. Repeating his attacks, Trump accused Blumenthal of devising "one of the greatest military frauds in US history" and argued the senator "should be investigated for his acts".

"Empaneling the grand jury shows that Bob Mueller is pursuing this potential wrongdoing by the Russians, the attack on our democracy, seriously and diligently - and there is no minimizing or underestimating that attack by the Russians", Blumenthal said. Judging from Blumenthal's comments, it appears that at least one Senator believes that's what he's trying to accomplish. He said Mueller's investigation must be pursued. "Now he judges collusion?"

In a tweet , Trump said, "Consumer confidence is at a 16 year high.and for good reason". At the time, the automaker was considering making cars for the USA market in Mexico.

"Watching Senator Richard Blumenthal speak of Comey is a joke", Trump tweeted on May 10, a day after firing Comey.

But the truth about Blumenthal's military record might be a little more nuanced than Trump let on.

Though the senator initially said that he served in the conflict, it was soon discovered that he received several deferments.

The president was referring to a controversy that arose during Blumenthal's 2010 campaign, when he claimed that he served in the Vietnam War. Trump also tweeted about Blumenthal's military service in February during the confirmation process for now-Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.

"President Trump has to tell Putin, who is an adversary not an ally, that Russian Federation will pay a price if Russian Federation repeats this kind of meddling in our election", Blumenthal said earlier in July.

Blumenthal and Trump share a dishonorable history with Vietnam service. "And what you should do is ask Senator Blumenthal about his Vietnam record that didn't exist after years of saying it did", he said.
