GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump told an author of his forthcoming biography that even though he never served in the military he felt he attended a military themed school. He added that he got “more training militarily than a lot of the guys that go into the military.”
The New York Times received an advance copy of Donald Trump’s biography “Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success” written by Michael D’Antonio’s. the real estate mogul adds that his experience at New York Military Academy felt like being in the military. He added that he wore uniforms and participated in marching drills and that his instructors served in the military as well.
Trump’s parents sent him to a military school to curb his bad behavior. He graduated from military school in 1964 and joined Fordham University before he transferred to University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Finance.
Trump’s feeling about the military experience has been called to question especially during his three month old presidential campaign. Trump suggested that Arizona Senator John McCain, who had spent more than five years in North Vietnamese prison, is only a war hero because he was captured. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured,” Trump said in one of his campaigns in Ames, Iowa.
