OH NO! New Donald Trump Campaign Video Makes a Totally Embarrassing Blunder

The Donald Trump for President campaign made a serious mistake on Friday. Viewers of a new Trump ad intending to honor our nation’s U.S. military and veterans noticed that it instead featured the wrong military.

Just last month, “The Donald” surprisingly heaped praise on Russian strongman Vladimir Putin, a dictatorial tyrant, after Putin tickled Trump’s ears, calling the bombastic billionaire and reality TV star “bright and talented.

But we had no idea that Donald Trump was so fond of the Russian military, which was featured instead of our men in uniform in the new ad — and old-school USSR commies at that.

Unfortunately, before the Trump campaign noticed the fudge, an observant Josh Perry, social media director for Ted Cruz’s campaign, captured screen shots of Trump’s Facebook post and tweeted it out for the world to see:

As The Blaze reported, the footage below that was used by Trump was traced to Shutterstock, and a video titled, Russia, TOGLIATTI, MAY 9, 2015, Victory Day: Veterans of World War II with red flowers in hand at the Military Parade, military medals.”

A real amateur move.
