Vets cite Heck’s trust of Donald Trump with America’s nuclear codes as evidence he doesn’t have the judgment to be a U.S. Senator
LAS VEGAS, NV – Today, veterans from across Nevada launched a campaign blasting Rep. Joe Heck for boldly declaring he “trusts Donald Trump to have his finger on the nuclear button.” As part of a jaw-dropping CNN interview, Heck even went so far as asking the reporter “Why wouldn’t I?”
The campaign — a collaboration between For Nevada’s Future, Common Defense PAC and MoveOn.org — will remind Joe Heck just how much Donald Trump is temperamentally unfit and dangerously unqualified to be commander-in-chief. As part of that effort, the vets also unveiled a web video and petition demanding that Heck immediately, “disavow Trump and reject his reckless approach to foreign policy.”
The petition is authored by Senior Airman Eric Sutton, a veteran of the United States Air Force, who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Senior Airman Sutton is a Nevada native and Las Vegas resident.
“It is frankly scary that Joe Heck, who I respect for serving his country, would support such a man to lead the most powerful military on Earth,” said Sutton, E4 Senior Airman USAF Iraq, and Afghanistan. “Anyone who has held the responsibility of a General knows that Donald Trump lacks the judgment to engage our armed forces.”
