SO IS THIS.


Which part is the BS part? Or is all of it BS? Did he not even say he got them a 10% pay raise? Did he not even say it was the first raise they'd gotten in ten years, more than ten years? If he didn't say it, what's your take on the video of him saying it?

Or did he say it, but it's entirely true? So is the DoD lying about the percentage the raise actually is? Is the DoD lying about what years raises have happened?

I'm just really trying to parse out what it is that's "BS" about this story.

“They had plenty of people that came up. They said, ‘You know, we could make it smaller. We could make it 3 percent. We could make it 2 percent. We could make it 4 percent.’ I said, ‘No. Make it 10 percent. Make it more than 10 percent.’ Because it’s been a long time. It’s been more than 10 years. It’s been more than 10 years. That’s a long time. And, you know, you really put yourselves out there, and you put your lives out there. So congratulations.”


the troops should hold him to it.

now that that is out of the way lets hear your opinion on this lie*

*could be yuge fake news


We can say he is lying and then sing kumbaya together...lol Or we can say Trump wants them to have a big raise, 10% is not workable no matter what the President wants since Congress sets the amount. The deal is Trump did push for a very large military budget and got it and this means the Military is getting its largest pay raise in 9 years....

Trump speeches are always over the top, so yes he pretty much lies then in everyone if that is how you want to view them...

the military is getting a raise. AmIrite? But still Huffpo finds a way to turn it into a hit piece.

Then the minions go spread the obvious BS hit piece that he doesnt care about the troops.

When he is bringing them home to their families.

I guess I missed the part of the OP and the sources provided that said Trump claimed a raise being given when no raise is being given? Can you point that out for us? All I saw was the part where specific statements made were challenged as being factually wrong, not that no raise whatsoever was being given and he said it was.

Oh, wait, you're doing that thing where you attack points that weren't even made because you can't attack the points that were actually made, and then declare yourself the victor. Got it.


But go figure you iberals dont think its enough


As I've explained to you time and time again before, not being a right-wing mouthpiece like you doesn't make me a liberal. It just makes me not a right-wing mouthpiece like you.

The issue here is that trump said 10%

No such pay increase took place.

The other issue seems to stem from him saying that it was the largest in 10 years.

The only reason thats true is because of taxation wiping those raises our like mine were. This pay raise will NOT be wiped out thanks to tax cuts.

This story is a mixed bag filled with nuance that would escape most here.
