Since Donald Trump began his presidential campaign last year, his campaign has repeatedly focused on helping America’s veterans, but we now know why the billionaire never served in the military, specifically the Vietnam War!
According to the Daily Beast, during an interview with Howard Stern in 1997, Trump said that sleeping around with lots of women was his “personal Vietnam”:
In a 1997 interview with shock jock Howard Stern, Trump talked about how he had been “lucky” not to have contracted diseases when he was sleeping around.
“I’ve been so lucky in terms of that whole world. It is a dangerous world out there. It’s scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam-era,” Trump said in a video that resurfaced Tuesday on Buzzfeed, “It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave soldier.”
It wasn’t the only time the Republican frontrunner for president would liken his personal life to wartime service: Trump has claimed that his military-themed boarding school education was essentially equivalent to having being trained in the military.
