Jindal for President

 

BATON ROUGE – As Donald Trump prepares to give his first speech on foreign policy today, his sources of information and advice have been revealed in a new web video from the Jindal Campaign.

The secret as he prepares? Television shows.

In the video, Trump tells CNN’s Chris Cuomo that he watches "all of the shows" and finds it to be a “really fascinating subject." He says that seeing Generals and "all sorts of people” and "the Colonel stuff” has allowed him to learn a lot.

Trump goes on to reveal that his reading material includes “the various newspapers and magazines."

The web video also shows a sneak-peak of Trump watching some of his favorite military documentaries.

Jindal Campaign Manager Timmy Teepell said:

“As The Donald has himself told us, he’s 'the most militaristic person ever,’ and now we know why."

“We can look forward to a spellbinding speech, knowing that Donald Trump has been briefed by the finest foreign policy minds in hollywood and the media."

banner

WASHINGTON. D.C. – On January 12, Congressman Frank Guinta voted in support of the Clay Hunt SAV Act, a bipartisan bill to improve mental health care and suicide prevention resources for American servicemembers.  Following the Senate’s passage of this legislation on February 3, Congressman Frank Guinta released the following statement: 

 

“Far too often, our veterans return home with wounds in mind and body.  In New Hampshire, we have one of the highest veteran populations per capita in the nation -  we know all too well how difficult a veteran’s transition into civilian life upon returning from overseas can be.  I was honored to support this legislation and with the Senate’s bipartisan passage of the Clay Hunt SAV Act, we as a Congress have taken an essential step towards ensuring our service members have the very best care and resources to assist them.  We must continue to find these common sense, bipartisan solutions.  Our nation’s heroes deserve nothing less.” 

 

The bill now awaits the President’s signature to become law.

Senator Shaheen: I don’t think we want tens of thousands American troops as an occupying force for 60 years as we had in Korea. 
 
George Stephanopoulos: Let me pose that to you Senator Brown because I was speaking to Speaker Boehner a couple of weeks ago and he did say that American troops would have to go in on the ground if other countries did not step up. Do you agree?
 
Senator Brown: I want to rely on the generals on the ground and that is the problem.  The President and Senator Shaheen already taken the greatest fighting force off the table, while ISIS is not taking anything off the table and with respect to Senator Shaheen,we are a liberating force we are not an occupying force, Senator. And I and every other person.
