    Trump dismissed US war dead as ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’ – report

    Sep 4th 2020 6:36AM
    Donald Trump made multiple disparaging remarks about members of the US military who had been captured or killed, and referred to the American war dead at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in France as "losers" and "suckers", according to reports.

    The president said the story, first reported in The Atlantic, is "totally false".

    A senior Defence Department official with first-hand knowledge of events and a senior Marine Corps officer who was told about Mr Trump's comments confirmed some of the remarks to the Associated Press, including the cemetery incident.

    The officials said he made the comments as he begged off visiting the cemetery outside Paris during a meeting following his presidential daily briefing on the morning of November 10 2018.

    What animal would say such a thing?

    Staff from the National Security Council and the Secret Service told Mr Trump that rainy weather made helicopter travel to the cemetery risky, but they could drive there. He responded by saying he did not want to visit the cemetery because it was "filled with losers", the official said.

    At the time the White House blamed the cancelled visit on poor weather.

    In another conversation on the trip, The Atlantic said, Mr Trump referred to the 1,800 marines who died in the First World War battle of Belleau Wood as "suckers" for getting killed.

    He denied the Atlantic report, calling it "a disgraceful situation" by a "terrible magazine".

    Speaking to reporters after he returned to Washington from a campaign rally in Pennsylvania, Mr Trump said: "I would be willing to swear on anything that I never said that about our fallen heroes. There is nobody that respects them more. No animal — nobody — what animal would say such a thing?"

    He also reiterated the White House explanation of why he did not visit the cemetery. "The helicopter could not fly," he said, because of the rain and fog.

    "The Secret Service told me you can't do it. They would never have been able to get the police and everybody else in line to have a president go through a very crowded, very congested area."

    White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said: "It's sad the depths that people will go to during a lead-up to a presidential campaign to try to smear somebody."

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, whose son served in Iraq, said: "If the revelations in today's Atlantic article are true, then they are yet another marker of how deeply President Trump and I disagree about the role of the president of the United States.

    "Duty, honour, country — those are the values that drive our service members. I will ensure that our American heroes know that I will have their back and honour their sacrifice — always."

    The defence officials also confirmed to the AP that Mr Trump, on Memorial Day 2017, had gone with chief of staff John Kelly to visit the Arlington Cemetery gravesite of Mr Kelly's son Robert, who was killed in 2010 in Afghanistan, and said to Mr Kelly: "I don't get it. What was in it for them?"

    The senior Marine Corps officer and The Atlantic, citing sources with first-hand knowledge, also reported that Mr Trump said he did not want to support the August 2018 funeral of Republican senator John McCain, a decorated navy veteran who spent years as a Vietnam prisoner of war, because he was a "loser".

    ..Country, had to be approved by me, as President, & I did so without hesitation or complaint. Quite the contrary, I felt it was well deserved. I even sent Air Force One to bring his body, in casket, from Arizona to Washington. It was my honor to do so. Also, I never called..

    ....John a loser and swear on whatever, or whoever, I was asked to swear on, that I never called our great fallen soldiers anything other than HEROES. This is more made up Fake News given by disgusting & jealous failures in a disgraceful attempt to influence the 2020 Election!

    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 4, 2020

    The Atlantic reported that the president was angered that flags were flown at half-mast for Mr McCain, saying: "What the f*** are we doing that for? Guy was a f****** loser."

    Trump acknowledged Thursday he was "never a fan" of McCain and disagreed with him, but said he still respected him and approved everything to do with his "first-class triple-A funeral" without hesitation because "I felt he deserved it."

    In 2015, shortly after launching his presidential candidacy, Mr Trump publicly criticised Mr McCain, saying: "He's not a war hero," and adding:: "I like people who weren't captured."

    The magazine said Mr Trump also referred to former president George HW Bush as a "loser" because he was shot down by the Japanese as a Navy pilot in the Second World War.

    Trump is shutting down the military's Stars and Stripes newspaper because he doesn't like that they report facts that make him look bad. The Stars and Stripes has been in operation since the late 1800s, and Trump wants to shut it down for political reasons.

    Those of us who have lost family members in military are disgusted by this. I understand why bush doesn’t support him. The fake news rhetoric he is spouting is getting old fast

    I think it's hilarious, whether true or not. The similar things he's said, on tape, make this comment true to his beliefs. I still hate it that we're now down to two old, white, male, draft dodgers for a choice. And, Biden's reaction is simply typical. Hey, he sacrificed because his son served. Really? That entitles him to get USAA insurance, right?

    What Trump is purported to have said is completely consistent with everything else we’ve been hearing and reading including the president’s comments about John McCain,
    Marla Maples prenuptial agreement in which Trump warns her that if their daughter joins the peace corps or the Military she will not have access to their bank account,
    to his dislike of Stars and Stripes newspaper because it's independent, and of course Mary Trump’s tell-all book in which she states that Don Jr. would be disowned by
    the family if he joined the Military.

    Two, three, and four star generals today have come out and publicly stated that President Trump is not fit to be the commander in chief.
