Charles Woods, the father of a former Navy Seal who died protecting the American consulate in Benghazi, is endorsing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Woods cited national security and the economy as the two primary reasons for his endorsement of Trump. “I support Donald Trump, and the main reason is national security as well as the economy are the two most important issues that voters are going to have to decide upon next November.”
In a statement to issued to the media, the Trump campaign attacked Clinton for causing the situation that led to the attack in Benghazi, Libya and for covering up the information about the attack. Clinton originally blamed an internet video for the attack that killed four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens and Tyrone Woods.
Hillary Clinton’s poor judgment led to these tragic deaths in Libya. First, her reckless decision to invade Libya unleashed radical Islamic terror groups that threatened Americans. Compounded with her failure to provide the necessary security upgrades and reinforcements cost four Americans their lives. After it all, she lied to the world about what happened to cover up the role of Radical Islam. We could have known more about her actions, but she illegally stored and then deleted 33,000 emails.
“Tyrone Woods is an American hero and his father is a tremendous person whom I have great respect for,” Trump said of the endorsement. “His support is so important to me. Together we are going to defeat Hillary Clinton in November and make America safe again.”
