Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’

My name is WonYong Shim and I am the Deputy Coalition Director for North Carolina’s Veterans and Military Families (VMF) Engagement Team. 


While working for a veteran Member of Congress, I saw over and over again how President Trump would denigrate our gold star families and veterans, most infamously, Senator John Mccain and give sardonic remarks about ousting our servicemembers from his administration – General John Kelly, General Jim Mattis and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. I saw how President Trump was willing to hold our Coast Guards hostage by having the longest government shutdown in the history of our nation. I saw how President Trump was more than willing to divert $80 million of the Military Construction fund designated for the most important construction projects in Fort Bragg and Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. I saw how the President was willing to publicly contradict our intelligence agencies, state department officials and military service members to side with foreign dictators, especially those our servicemembers are working so hard to keep our nation safe from. I saw how our Commander in Chief responded with an inaction after hearing a Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing and targeting American troops. 

Many of us have known all along that we need a new Commander in Chief in the White House, but as today marks the 60th day before the most important election of our lifetime, and as Vice President Pence is visiting the state to campaign on behalf of President Trump, I wanted to share the last night’s article to reminds us why it is critical that every VMF supporter in North Carolina votes on November 3rd, 2020. 

Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’

The president has repeatedly disparaged the intelligence of service members, and asked that wounded veterans be kept out of military parades, multiple sources tell The AtlanticRead here 
In response to this enraging article, Vice President Biden released a statement last night that contradicts the vulgar tone President Trump adopted in describing our veterans and fallen soldiers. 

Statement by Vice President Joe Biden

If the revelations in today’s Atlantic article are true, then they are yet another marker of how deeply President Trump and I disagree about the role of the President of the United States. I have long said that, as a nation, we have many obligations, but we only have one truly sacred obligation — to prepare and equip those we send into harm’s way, and to care for them and their families, both while they are deployed and after they return home. That’s the foundation of what Jill and I believe. It’s why we’ve always prioritized the health and well-being of our service members, veterans, and military families. We’ve visited troops coming home wounded in Walter Reed. We’ve hosted wounded veterans in our home to share a Thanksgiving meal. And, as the proud parents of a son who served in Iraq, we’ve made supporting military spouses, caregivers, and children a focus of our service.

Generations of American troops have shed blood around the world in defense of our freedoms and to protect U.S. vital interests. From the frontlines of our own Revolution to Belleau Wood to the Normandy beaches to the mountains of Afghanistan, the sacrifice and bravery of our troops and their willingness to serve our nation should be honored. Duty, honor, country — those are the values that drive our service members. Those are the values that have formed the core of America’s defense for centuries. And if I have the honor of serving as the next commander in chief, I will ensure that our American heroes know that I will have their back and honor their sacrifice — always.

99 Reasons to Flip NC

55. TO PREVENT PARTISAN RESTRICTIONS ON EARLY VOTING

Beginning with the 2013 “monster” voter law (#97) and continuing with legislation passed just before the 2016 and 2018 elections, the NC GOP has repeatedly enacted policies designed to make early voting more difficult by shortening the number of days and sites and, in a move targeted squarely at African-American voters, eliminating Sunday voting. Thankfully, many of these attempts at targeted voter suppression have been blocked by the courts. We should be doing everything we can to make voting easier, not harder.

One Stop & Early Voting Poll Greeters

We are lucky to have five One Stop & Early Voting locations this year:

Please feel free to contact Michelle if you have any questions on how we will be ensuring no contact. If you can only do a partial shift, please let me know and I may be able to find someone to cover the rest of the time.

Wondering what you can do to help ensure local elections meet the challenges of this health crisis?

Alamance County needs election workers for the 2020 Elections!

Check this link to the Alamance County Election Official Application. We especially need elections workers during the 17-day early voting period. We have a new early voting location at the Elmira Community Center in Burlington and we have newly expanded weekend voting, including Sunday voting. This means we need more elections workers than in the past. And the COVID virus has meant that many of our predominantly older elections workers who are more vulnerable have chosen not to return to work this year’s election.

You can also fill out the NC State Board of Elections Democracy Heroes form to be contacted by BOE staff: https://www.ncsbe.gov/get-involved
