President Donald Trump announced his arrival in Vietnam on Tuesday morning, only to be greeted with mockery and ridicule about his bone spurs and dodging the draft during the Vietnam War.
Trump traveled to Vietnam for a second summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un this week where it is feared he will agree to concessions in a desperate effort to get a mere pinky swear that North Korea will denuclearize even though his own intelligence chiefs have warned that Kim Jong Un has no intention of giving up his nuclear arsenal.
Upon landing, Trump announced his arrival on Twitter.
Just arrived in Vietnam. Thank you to all of the people for the great reception in Hanoi. Tremendous crowds, and so much love!

His arrival to Vietnam, however, is 51 years too late.
In 1968, Trump was a college graduate and an athlete. Yet, he somehow got diagnosed with bone spurs, which he used as his reason to get out of being drafted for military service during the Vietnam War. Thousands of American men fought and died in the war as Trump stayed home, including the late-Senator John McCain, who would be tortured as a prisoner of war. In fact, Trump received five deferments to avoid it.
Even the daughter of the doctor who diagnosed Trump has come forward to say that her father helped Trump dodge the draft as a favor to Trump’s dad, a wealthy businessman who had deep enough pockets to make such an arrangement.
In response to Trump’s tweet, Twitter users mercilessly mocked him for his cowardice 50 years ago.

This is a violation of international law: US is dropping Agent Orange to Hanoi.

This is Trump’s first time in Vietnam since he dodged the draft for his fake bone spurs. Congratulations! Hope he brought along the Purple Heart he snatched from a veteran on the campaign trail. Yoink!

Since your arrival in Hanoi, Vietnam is about 50 years LATE, folks just wanted to get a look at the buffoon coward with bone spurs up close…
…before you’re behind bars.

It’s nice to see your bone spurs didn’t keep you out of Vietnam this time.

Welcome to where you should have been 50 years ago, Cadet Bone Spurs.

Donald’s bone spurs must be throbbing like crazy now he’s in Vietnam
It’s a miracle how he’ll even be able to dry hump Kim’s leg at all
Thoughts and prayers to him ???

Make sure you stop by the Hanoi Hilton Prison where John McCain, a hero, was tortured for years.

You’ve “just arrived in Vietnam.” Tell that to the men who went in your place. You’re DECADES late. When called upon, you were busy fighting a “personal Vietnam:” trying to avoid contracting STDs while sleeping around. Remember that? Fu¢k you, #CadetBoneSpurs. pic.twitter.com/zyV963OQOW

Trump only has himself to blame, not only because he dodged the draft, but because he drew attention to his cowardice by hypocritically attacking Vietnam veterans like McCain and whining about alleged lies by others about their own service.
In the end, Trump could have held this summit with Kim Jong Un anywhere but Vietnam to avoid the inevitable ridicule. Unfortunately, it looks like America is going to surrender to the enemy in Vietnam again.
