Trump Surrogate: Trump Sacrificed Two Marriages To Create Jobs!

As Donald Trump’s supporters defended the candidate following his repeated attacks on the parents of a deceased Muslim American soldier, one Trump surrogate went as far as saying that Trump sacrificed two of his marriages to create jobs.

Khizr Khan, the father of the Muslim soldier, said in his speech at the Democratic convention last week that Trump had “sacrificed nothing.” And Trump hit back over the weekend, saying that he’s “made a lot of sacrifices,” like creating jobs.

During a CNN panel discussion Sunday, Trump surrogate Scottie Nell Hughes defended Trump’s comments.

“Mr. Trump was responding to the fact of sacrificing. Nowhere ever did he ever say that his sacrifice was equivalent or more or even close to what the Kahn’s had given up,” she said.

CNN host Fredricka Whitfield then asked, “Is creating a job considered a sacrifice?”

“You know what, creating jobs caused him to be at work, which cost him two marriages,” Hughes said in response. “Time away from his family to sit there and invest.

Clinton surrogate Bernard Whitman jumped in to say, “infidelity cost him.”

“No, actually being away from his family, he’s admitted it,” Hughes insisted. “That is the spin of the media and ongoing bias.”
