Outside a primary day rally event for Donald Trump in Spartanburg, South Carolina, Newsmax correspondent Dennis Lynch was tasked with asking veterans on line for the event what they thought of the candidate, given the high number of veterans among voters in the GOP contest.
There was just one problem: Lynch couldn’t find any. After asking around, he quickly found out why:
Top Right News confirmed that about an hour before the event began, a Trump staffer saw a few vets in wheelchairs, and asked them to come in early. Five minutes later at the direction of the candidate, more staff were deployed to bring every veteran inside early, some of whom got time to meet Mr. Trump before his speech.
