The Donald Trump Effect Is Killing the Coast Guard’s Ability to Protect Our Shores [Details]


Donald Trump just began his month-long summer vacation, that he surely needs after ranting and raving on Twitter for six months. The epic failure of Trumpcare took a lot out of him; his weekly weekend vacation simply won’t suffice.

Via the Washington Post:

“Trump gave up day-to-day management of Mar-a-Lago but still owns the private club, which took in $37.2 million in resort-related revenue between January 2016 and April 2017, financial disclosures show.”

Earlier this week, Trump banned transgenders from the military because of the “tremendous medical costs.” However, the Coast Guard spends more to protect Trump at Mar-a-Lago than the military spends on medical services for its transgender members.

The Post report adds:

The Coast Guard’s commandant, Adm. Paul Zukunft, testified before a House subcommittee on Tuesday that the branch was “deferring maintenance” and running cutters and aircraft long beyond their retirement age because it needed more funding.

How can anyone support this blatant level of hypocrisy?
