President Donald Trump is angrily denying a report that he made disparaging remarks about U.S. service members who have been captured or killed, including that he described American war dead at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in France in 2018 as “losers” and “suckers.”
The allegations were reported in The Atlantic. A senior Defense Department official with firsthand knowledge of events and a senior U.S. Marine Corps officer who was told about Trump’s comments confirmed some of the remarks to The Associated Press, including the 2018 cemetery comments.
In another conversation on the trip, The Atlantic said, Trump referred to the 1,800 Marines who died in the World War I battle of Belleau Wood as “suckers” for getting killed.
Then Jennifer Griffin, a national security correspondent for the network, said in a lengthy Twitter thread that former Trump administration officials confirmed the president’s remarks to her.
The Atlantic article cited anonymous sources â€” which Fox News said suggested the article had been falsified â€” but two former senior Trump administration officials verified the president’s disparaging comments to Griffin, she said.
who was told about Trump’s comments
This 'report' is hitting the media by storm at the moment, which is surprising for me considering that I don't typically expect anonymous sources to gain that much steam in this political era....?

You go ahead and double down on this lie.
I'm sure after you get schooled hard, again, you'll be right in here to admit how wrong you were like all the other fake news you so vehemently spread and defend.
