Because he is questioning Pres. Biden's patriotism. I come from a military

family. I have stood for the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. It is one of our nation's most hallowed, sacred grounds.
But when Trump visited Arlington on Memorial Day with General John Kelly to see the grave of Kelly's son, who gave his life in Afghanistan, Trump's comment was that he didn't understand what was in it for them. Kelly did not deny the comment. So, what we have is a series of extremely disrespectful actions towards our Armed Forces and the memories of those lost in battle. Extremely disrespectful -- except that 62 Buff for some reason is a Trump supporter who wants to chastise Biden for his lack of respect for our armed forces. That makes no sense whatsoever.
Seriously, who goes to Arlington and says ( or even thinks) "What's in it for them?" On Memorial Day? To a 4 star general who lost his son? His son died in battle, and that is Trump's comment? And 62 is a Trump supporter? That makes no possible sense. - B4E
