At a campaign event in Ashburn, Virginia, GOP nominee Donald Trump received a Purple Heart from a veteran in attendance.
After receiving the Purple Heart medal, Trump remarked: “I always wanted to get the Purple Heart. This was much easier.”
The Purple Heart is the decoration awarded to those killed or wounded while serving in the U.S. military.
“Trump did not get the Purple Heart, and there’s no ‘easy way’ to get it,” a spokesman for the Military Order of the Purple Heart told CBS News.
