Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Anti-Trump brigade rushes to school president over misleading clip implying he said Desert Storm op was in ‘jungles of Vietnam’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
A short clip circulating on social media seemed to suggest that Donald Trump mistakenly said that Operation Desert Storm – an offensive against Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein in the 1990 Gulf War – actually took place in “the dense fields and jungles of Vietnam” during his July 4 address.
Some Twitter warriors quickly jumped in to blast and mock the president for what looked like an embarrassing gaffe on Independence Day.
“Trump’s cognitive decline is incredibly concerning! Besides mumbling like he has dementia, he thinks Vietnam and Operation Desert Storm are somehow the same thing,” one critic wrote.
Another wrote that he “prefers” presidents who do not confuse Vietnam with the Middle East. Some even flaunted their “master’s degree in military history” to debunk Trump.

This video is grossly misleading.President Trump did not say Operation Desert Storm is in the jungles of Vietnam.All this person had to do was back-up the video some 15 seconds. https://t.co/UutDyocboxpic.twitter.com/axUaA91LK9— Giancarlo Sopo (@GiancarloSopo) July 5, 2020
