On August 6, 2010, after defusing 40 bombs in just five days, Jones’ life forever changed after stepping on an IED while clearing a minefield. The incident, which triggered a massive explosion, resulted in the loss of both his legs above the knee and severe damage to his right forearm and both wrists.

On Thursday, after Trump launched the MOAB and many on Twitter lost their minds, Jones set out to explain the reality of the situation.

“We begged to use bombs on the minefield ghost town I lost my legs clearing. But by all means-continue your rhetorically righteous tweeting,” Jones asserted in a tweet.

Jones stated that it is important to allow generals who are on the ground, not the public, to make decisions that will benefit troops — as well as keep them safe.

The former-Marine also explained that the Obama Administration using all of the tools that they had available to them may have prevented his injuries, and the injuries of others.

Speaking to Big League Politics, Jones elaborated that the reason why it was so much more dangerous for our troops under the Obama administration was that “all tactics, policies, and procedures seemed so reliant on whether or not it would be a bad PR move, instead of whether or not it would save Marine lives.” He explained that the situation became so bad, that they eventually stopped bothering to call in air support, even when it was needed.

“We win wars because we own the air, and we own the night,” Jones said. “In 2010, military tactics were based on domestic politics instead what would be the best and safest tactics, because the New York Times commentary was a higher risk to the administration.”

Jones continued on to say that had this administration, with a higher priority on Marine lives than what the press will say, been in power, “I guarantee more of my buddies would still be alive.”

Since the incident, Jones has continued to be an inspiration, dedicating his life to helping other veterans.

“Determined to make the road to recovery easier for his fellow wounded veterans, Jones founded a peer visit program at Walter Reed, providing opportunities for others recovering to mentor and encourage newly-injured patients,” Jones’ biography reads. “His dedication and relentlessness led to an unprecedented year-long fellowship on Capitol Hill with the House of Representatives Veterans’ Affairs Committee, his work resulted in the creation of an annual fellowship for a wounded Marine.”

President Trump Confirms Support of Republican Party, Slams Biden’s Open Borders in Wide-Ranging CPAC Speech

The Republican Party is Trump’s party.

President Donald Trump refuted reports that he plans to start a new political party in a wide-ranging CPAC speech, going on to deliver a thorough criticism of his successor’s “America Last” approach to governance.

Trump pointed to the notion of creating a “Patriot Party” as a “stupid idea,” arguing that it would divide the votes of nationalists, conservatives and America First patriots who support his political movement. He confirmed that he intends to lead the Republican Party, and that only the GOP could effectively stand up to Biden’s liberal-globalist establishment vision.

Trump pointed to Biden’s disastrous first month in office as the worst for an American president history, citing the establishment Democrat’s dismantling of US borders and immigration system, destruction of the energy industry, and mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic and vaccine delivery program.

Trump focused more on Joe Biden’s open borders immigration policies than any other speaker at CPAC, recounting how Biden had dismantled much of his own America First policy reforms in his first month in office. Biden has terminated wall construction, administratively abolished ICE, opened the asylum system to economic migrants, and endangered American communities at a moment in which incoming ‘caravans’ of illegal aliens pose a potent threat to deliver the coronavirus.

The 45th President suggested he might run for the office again in 2024, potentially becoming the first president since Grover Cleveland to serve non-consecutive terms in the White House.

The former President summarized many of his policy accomplishments while in office, contrasting them with the Biden approach. Among the points Trump touched on include the reopening of schools(delayed by Biden), his dealings with Iran.

With support for President Trump’s political movement as potent as ever, it remains certain he’ll remain the de facto leader of the Republican Party in the years to come. Polling conducted at CPAC reveals that Trump easily leads polling for a 2024 Republican primary should be run again, with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis leading with a plurality in the event the 45th President decides not to run again.
