Trump downplays troops injuries in Iran

President Trump downplayed the injuries service members suffered following an Iranian missile attack earlier this month. ’I heard that they had headaches and a couple of other things, but I would say and I can report that it’s not very serious’, Trump said. Trump added he did not consider the injuries ’very serious’. The Pentagon has said 11 troops had been treated for concussion symptoms.

The Iranians attacked a US base there were no casualties but a few soldiers walked away with at worst concussions. This is clearly a case of orange man bad! #Impeach45

I’d take a few concussions over getting my legs blown off or shot in the head. Media making mountains out of mole hills again, trying to paint Trump as uncaring. Pathetic

is it 2021 yet?

“I don’t consider them very serious injuries relative to other injuries I have seen. I’ve seen people with no legs and no arms.” Of course trump doesn’t see the brain being injured as being serious, he has never seen a need to use his.

Trump responds to agression, is call a war monger. He tries to de-escalate a situation, he's either accused of pandering to a dictator or that he doesn't support the troops.

Maybe he was “downplaying” the injuries publicly to circumvent the warhawks calling for blood. Or to paint the missile strikes as non-consequential. If he had done otherwise you know they’d be saying orange man bad because he was trying to stir up the public to vote for him out of bloodlust or something else equally stupid.
