Donald Trump strongly criticized the Obama Administration for its handling of the Bowe Bergdhal Prisoner swap while calling U.S. Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl a Dirty, Rotten, No Good Traitor. The Taliban held Bergdahl for five years in Afghanistan and turned him over to the U.S. Government in exchange for five Guantanamo Bay detainees. Berdgahl is accused of walking off his Army outpost in Afghanistan.
Turmp said 20 years ago, Bergdahl would have been shot. 40 years ago he would have been shot in the first hour. When Trump told a packed Pensacola Bay Center crowd how he would have handled Bergdahl, the crowd applauded. “Now, I would have said, Oh really, he’s a traitor? Pass, let them have him..he’s got him. Frankly, Frankly..I would take that son of a bitch..I’d fly him back and drop him right over the top. I’m telling you..I’m telling you.”
The Army plans to try Bergdahl by general court martial on charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. If convicted, he could receive a life sentence.
