Knudsen also refused to speak out for Montana veterans, nearly a week after reports surfaced that President Trump described fallen service members as “losers” and “suckers.” His silence comes as no surprise, given his long history of antagonizing veterans in his own community and voting against their interests as a legislator. In 2011, Knudsen voted to kill the veterans home in Butte, and in 2017 he voted against a bill to lower the cost veterans pay out of pocket to purchase a home.
“Montanans have a right to hear from Knudsen himself why he’s going out of his way to block local veterans from their own park,” said MDP Communications Director Nathan Stein. “Knudsen’s antagonizing of veterans is out of step with Montana values, and a slap in the face to the nearly one in ten Montanans who served.”
