Donald Trump: Geneva Conventions Have Made U.S. Soldiers “Afraid To Fight”

Donald Trump: Geneva Conventions Have Made U.S. Soldiers “Afraid To Fight”

Yesterday, during a contentious town hall with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews (who does NOT have a tingle up his leg for The Donald), Trump spouted yet another absurdity. This time it was in regards to a combination of foreign policy, our troops ability to engage the enemy, and other beautiful stuff.  Specifically, Trump informed us that the Geneva Conventions are a YUUUGE problem….for our U.S. soldiers.

“The problem is we have the Geneva Conventions, all sorts of rules and regulations, so the soldiers are afraid to fight,” Trump said at an afternoon town hall during remarks on torture.
“We can’t waterboard, but they can chop off heads,” Trump said, referring to the United States and the Islamic State, respectively. “I think we’ve got to make some changes, some adjustments.”

Wait what? The Geneva Conventions have made our soldiers AFRAID TO FIGHT?? Did he really just say that? Yes, yes he did.

I’m positive that is news to all our men and women in uniform!

Yes he did, and yet it is.
