Trump on not serving in the military: I think I'm making up for it now

Trump was asked in an interview with Piers Morgan on “Good Morning Britain” about his lack of military service as the president prepared to attend a ceremony commemorating the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

“I would not have minded that at all,” Trump responded when asked if he wished he’d been able to serve his country.

“I would’ve been honored. But I think I make up for it right now… and I think I’m making up for it rapidly because we’re rebuilding our military at a level that it’s never seen before,” he added, citing defense spending increases under his administration.
