Donald Trump and Sarah Palin are both blaming President Barack Obama for the arrest of Sarah's eldest son, Track Palin on charges of fourth-degree assault and gun possession while under the influence of alcohol.
When asked by CNN's Don Lemon if it was "fair to link the president with her son's issues," the Republican presidential hopeful said:
"Oh, I think so," Trump, 69, replied. "Look, everything starts at the top. He's the president. And I think you can certainly do that. And all you have to do is look at the Veterans Administration, and look at the bad, the horrible care our vets get. One of the many things I'm going to do is I'm going to straighten that mess out."
Track, 26, was arrested on Monday, January 18, in Wasilla, Alaska, on multiple charges including assault. The U.S. Army veteran reportedly held an assault rifle during the incident and threatened to kill himself. He allegedly told officers, "Do you think I’m a p---y?" and "Do you think I won’t do it?"
Palin, who endorsed Trump for president on Tuesday, January 18, addressed the incident early Wednesday at an event in Tulsa, Oklahoma. "It's a shame that our military personnel even have to question, have to wonder if they’re respected anymore," the former Vice Presidential candidate said. "It starts from the top."
Both Palin and Trump have been critical of the president on numerous occasions.
