Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) used his experience as an Iraq War veteran to respond to a comment a Fox News anchor made suggesting the Trump family has done more for the country than any Democrat.

“Totally remember the Trump brothers laying down suppressive fire for me in Anbar,” Gallego tweeted Sunday.

Gallego was responding to a statement made by Jesse Watters, a host of Fox News programs “The Five” and “Watters’ World.”
