The Republican super PAC the Lincoln Project hit President Trump with a campaign ad released Tuesday over reports of he was briefed that Russia had offered bounties to encourage Taliban-linked militants to kill coalition troops, including Americans.
The Lincoln Project’s new ad entitled “Betrayed” features former U.S. Navy Seal Dan Barkhuff, whom the group described as just one of the current and former service members who “feel betrayed” by Trump after the Russia bounty reports surfaced.
“Any commander-in-chief with a spine would be stomping the living shit out of Russians right now, diplomatically, economically or if necessary with the sort of asymmetric warfare they’re using to send our kids home in body bags,” Barkhuff says in the ad.
“Mr. Trump, you’re either a coward who can’t stand up to an ex-KGB goon or you’re complicit,” he added.
