WATCH | At a Virginia rally on Monday, Donald Trump implied American military veterans commit suicide because "they can't handle" the horrors of war.
They see things that maybe a lot of folks in this room have seen... and you're strong and you can handle it but a lot of people can't handle it.
Trump made the comment in the midst of a long-winded answer during a panel interview at the Retired American Warriors PAC in Herndon, Va.
'POWs aren't real heroes'
Trump supporters, including retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, said the media had misconstrued his remarks.
"Mr. Trump was highlighting the challenges veterans face when returning home after serving their country," Flynn said.
But critics, such as VoteVets.org's Jon Soltz, called the comments "horrible."
"We're talking about a person, in Trump, who believes that POWs aren't real heroes," Soltz said in a statement.

Meanwhile, some observers weren't impressed with Trump at the rally.
His comments on political correctness may be tied to a new policy on transgender people.
