A Great And Very Brave Soldier?: Draft Dodger Trump Says Sex In The Eighties Was 'His Personal Vietnam' During Howard Stern Interview in 1997

Hannah Parry at the British newspaper the Daily Mail offers a piece on Donald Trump's outrageous statements on the Howard Stern radio program in 1997.

Donald Trump - who dodged the military draft -  said that dating in the Eighties was his own 'personal Vietnam'.

The Republican presidential candidate told shock jock Howard Stern that he felt 'lucky' not to have picked up an STD while sleeping around during the decade.

Trump added that he felt like a 'great and very brave soldier' when he appeared on the show in 1997, re-posted this week by Buzzfeed.

... The billionaire real estate mogul was granted medical deferments from the military draft at age 22, and told reporters this year that it was because of bone spurs in both heels.

During his campaign for office, Trump has declared himself a devoted supporter of veterans and insists he would do the most for their causes if elected president.

He even admitted to New Hampshire voters last December that he feels 'a little guilty' for not serving in Vietnam.

But during the 1997 interview on The Howard Stern Show, he appeared to trivialize the war and those who fought for their country - comparing it to his sex life.

'I've been so lucky in terms of that whole world,' he said of sexually transmitted diseases. 'It is a dangerous world out there,' he said. 'It's scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam-era.' 

'It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave soldier.'
