Former President Donald Trump stepped out to support Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller, the military officer who was imprisoned for publicly criticizing the Biden administration’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan. In response, Trump supporters raised over $2 million for the soldier.
However, Scheller has publicly denounced Trump and the support he received from him.
Per Breitbart News, “Scheller publicly denounced help from the former president and his son, saying he would ‘rather sit in jail’ than accept their support:”
While I respect your foreign policy positions, I hate how you divided the country. I don’t need or want your help. You do not have the ability to pull US together. You may even win the next election. But your generation’s time is running out. Tell your son to stop tweeting about me. Your whole family knows nothing about US or our sacrifices. I could never work with you. I’d rather sit in jail and be released with a dishonorable than make compromises in my beliefs.
The imprisoned officer also blasted Presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush and Generals Michael Flynn, David Petraeus, and James Mattis.
