by Eric Mack
Doubling down on criticism of President Donald Trump as a “five-deferment draft dodger,” Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., rebuked President Trump’s partisan attacks on Democrats’ supposed lack of interest in supporting the military vs. DACA and Dreamer protections if illegal immigrants.
“He was elected, rightfully, to be president of the United States, [but] I don’t think that he has the right to question other people’s support for our military, especially those of us who have served,” Duckworth told CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday.
