President Trump Denies Calling Fallen Soldiers ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’
September 4, 2020
President Donald Trump is facing backlash from families of veterans after allegations, sourced anonymously in a report from The Atlantic, that he called fallen heroes "losers" and "suckers." The uproar comes after the report said Trump told his senior staff, "Why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers," during a 2018 visit to France to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. Trump denied the claims while speaking to reporters in the Oval Office on Friday.
