Trump: Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’

The president has repeatedly disparaged the intelligence of service members, and asked that wounded veterans be kept out of military parades, multiple sources tell The Atlantic.
Jeffrey Goldberg
5:32 PM ET

When President Donald Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, he blamed rain for the last-minute decision, saying that “the helicopter couldn’t fly” and that the Secret Service wouldn’t drive him there. Neither claim was true.

Trump rejected the idea of the visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain, and because he did not believe it important to honor American war dead, according to four people with firsthand knowledge of the discussion that day. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit, Trump said, “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.” In a separate conversation on the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as “suckers” for getting killed.

From the April 2020 issue: The president is winning his war on American institutions

Belleau Wood is a consequential battle in American history, and the ground on which it was fought is venerated by the Marine Corps. America and its allies stopped the German advance toward Paris there in the spring of 1918. But Trump, on that same trip, asked aides, “Who were the good guys in this war?” He also said that he didn’t understand why the United States would intervene on the side of the Allies.

Trump’s understanding of concepts such as patriotism, service, and sacrifice have interested me since he expressed contempt for the war record of the late Senator John McCain, who spent more than five years as a prisoner of the North Vietnamese. “He’s not a war hero,” Trump said in 2015 while running for the Republican nomination for president. “I like people who weren’t captured.”

The Atlantic story is completely false. Absolutely lacks merit. I’ve been by the President’s side. He has always shown the highest respect to our active duty troops and veterans with utmost respect paid to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice and those wounded in battle.

One of the things Obama did was remove a law about slander on public figures.  THAT IT SHOULD BE, ALLOWED.  HERE IT IS.  TOTAL LIES.  This article is so disgusting and untrue. 
I remember that.  It WAS RAINING. There is a video and SS did not want him attending as there was a 'hit' out on POTUS.THESE PEOPLE NEED TO BE SUED.  SS did not tell POTUS or public about the attempt.  Why would they?

Neither claim was true.= ARTICLE BOLD FACED LIE.    BOTH CLAIMS WERE CORECT.  Zero to do with his hair.  We have seen it fly in the wind.

The hatred is consuming these Democommies.  For Biden to meet with a follower of Farrakan is insane, but reveals just how desperate they are.

Biden basically is the leader of the anarchists, because he has never denied them.

The Atlantic Peddles Total Fake News to Smear Trump and Torpedo His Relationship with the Military

Quote
I mean, are they this desperate? Is the liberal media that nervous about Trump winning again? Because it would seem that they are throwing all the things against the wall to slow the momentum. The Atlantic is the first batter up, peddling a totally unverifiable story that President Trump has mocked and denigrated those who have served and died for this country. Yeah, they actually thought this would stick. The U.S. Military loves Trump, by the way. I don’t really see the point behind this story other than some pathetic attempt to smear the man yet again. Oh, and we have the anonymous sources, those shadowy folks with “firsthand knowledge.”

The desperation is transparent in the media’s 5-years long GET TRUMP OUT OF OFFICE campaign. They think we’re stupid. Their propaganda isn’t working like it used to.

Bolton

Bolton, himself refuted it in his book:

Bolton who is a prominent Trump critic, months ago in his memoir “The Room Where It Happened.” On the canceled trip to Aisne-Marne he wrote:

On Saturday, I went to the U.S. Ambassador’s residence, where Trump was staying, to brief him for his bilateral with [French President Emmanuel Macron]. The weather was bad and [former Chief of Staff John Kelly] and I spoke about whether to travel as planned to the Chateau-Thierry Belleau Woods monuments and nearby American Cemeteries, where many U.S. World War I were buried. Marine One’s crew were saying that bad visibility could make it imprudent to chopper to the cemetery. The ceiling was not too low for Marines to fly in combat, but flying POTUS was obviously something very different. If a motorcade were necessary, it could take between ninety and a hundred and twenty minutes each way, along roads that were not exactly freeways, posing an unacceptable risk that we could not get the President out of France quickly enough in case of an emergency. It was a straightforward decision to cancel the visit but very hard for a Marine like Kelly to recommend, having originally been the one to suggest Belleau Wood (an iconic battle in Marine Corps history). Trump agreed, and it was decided that others would drive to the cemetery instead.

Bolton continued:

The press turned canceling the military visit into a story that Trump was afraid of the rain and took glee in pointing out that other world leaders traveled around during the day. Of course, none of them were President of the United States, but the press didn’t understand that rules for US presidents are different from the rules for 190 other leaders who don’t command the world’s greatest military forces.

Okay, this is just flat out disgusting bulls**t!

How do we know? Anyone who has ever been to a Trump rally has seen how @realDonaldTrump always makes a huge deal if he spots a wounded vet in the crowd.

But since Jeffry is an Obama shill he probably never attended a Trump rally.
