Trump never called fallen American Soldiers “losers and suckers”.
Trump personally denounced a story published by The Atlantic, which cited anonymous sources that claim Trump described America’s fallen heroes as “suckers” and “losers.”
“It’s a total lie; it’s fake news. It’s a disgrace, and frankly it’s a disgrace to your profession”
Several members of the White House team, who were present for the trip, also publicly denounced the story on Twitter.
“The Atlantic story on Donald Trump is total BS,” wrote former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders. “I was actually there and one of the people part of the discussion – this never happened.”
Jordan Karem, the president’s body man during the trip, also weighed in on Twitter.
“Again, this is 100% false. I was next to the president the whole day!” he wrote. “The President was greatly disappointed when told we couldn’t fly there. He was incredibly eager to honor our Fallen Heroes.”
Former National Security Advisor John Bolton has disputed a story in The Atlantic claiming that President Donald Trump called fallen World War I soldiers “losers.” Bolton told the New York Times Friday that “I was there” and “I didn’t hear that.”
