Straight from the horse's *** mouth:
After college, Trump receives a medical deferment.
Trump graduated in 1968, one of the most turbulent years of the war. He set his sights on returning to New York.
On Oct. 15, several months after his graduation that spring, Trump was granted a 1-Y medical deferment.
In an interview with the New York Times, Trump said the reason he received the medical deferment was because of bone spurs in his heels.
The National Archives and Records Administration does not specify the reason for the medical deferment, only that it resulted from a September 1968 physical exam that “disqualified” him from service.
“I had a doctor that gave me a letter — a very strong letter on the heels,” Trump told the New York Times.
Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks declined to offer additional comment about the deferment.
