Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Thursday that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl should have been executed for leaving his post in Afghanistan.
‘We’re tired of Sgt. Bergdahl, who’s a traitor, a no-good traitor, who should have been executed,’ Trump said to cheers at a rowdy rally inside a packed Las Vegas theater at the casino-hotel Treasure Island.
‘Thirty years ago,’ Trump added, ‘he would have been shot.’
It was practically an aside in a litany of complaints at the end of a more than hourlong, free-wheeling speech that included a large dose of media-bashing and a claim that he was behind Rep. Kevin McCarthy’s decision to drop out of the race for House speaker.
Bergdahl was charged in March with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy.
The Army conducted a hearing on his case earlier this month. His attorney, Eugene Fidell, said in a statement that Trump ‘has become a broken record on this subject.’
‘If he took the time to study what actually emerged at the preliminary hearing he would be singing a different tune,’ Fidell said.
