President Trump sent a hilarious trolling tweet to Democratic Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal on Wednesday morning. Trump sent out a tweet claiming he has officially spent more time in Vietnam than ‘Da Nang Dick.’
Blumenthal committed the criminal act of stolen valor claiming he fought in Vietnam when he clearly did not. This was a massive embellishment of his military record that constitutes as stolen valor.
Trump tweeted, “I have now spent more time in Vietnam than Da Nang Dick Blumenthal, the third rate Senator from Connecticut (how is Connecticut doing?). His war stories of his heroism in Vietnam were a total fraud – he was never even there. We talked about it today with Vietnamese leaders!”
President Trump made this statement due to his visit to Vietnam for a trade meeting and and his eventual meeting with North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un.
