Trump was in college from 1964-68 (exempt) and in 1968 he was rated "unfit for military service" due to bone spurs. HOW is he a draft dodger?

I'm with you on that ...but I have to add that "bone spurs" were never mentioned on his selective service report. He was disqualified in 1968 (
Class 1-Y, date 10/15/68-available but qualified for military only in the event of war or national emergency
Class 4-F, date 2/1/72 - not qualified for any military service.........people who are saying he was a draft dodger know nothing about the military, they are YOUNG people parroting something someone who had an agenda said, the agenda being to smear our president. Things in the military were different back during the vietnam war, and because they only called up 1/3 of those in selective service thru the draft well others were allowed to go to school. ....a draft dodger was a conscientious objector to the war who either ran to Canada after being drafted, or went AWOL to Canada, and those folks were finally pardoned September 16, 2014. If Trump were a draft dodger he would not have been in the US all those years. ..During the war they drafted guys 18-26 and Trump became 4-F (not qualified) on 2/1/72 too near his 26th birthday to be called up.

An education exemption doesn't magically mean you served.
You spent twenty years caling Bill Clinton a draft dodger for his exemption.
That is without that fake doctor's note about bone spurs, another rich kid buying his way out of Vietnam. This crippled guy with bone spurs had no problem playing sports in high school, nor was there any indication of this alleged complaint when the military rated him fit in 1968.
