Trump panned over reports he called United States war dead 'losers'”

Mr Trump went on to attack another journalist, Jennifer Griffin of Fox News, normally one of the president's favourite news outlets.

Veterans' groups are among those condemning Mr Trump, less than two months from the 2020 election.

Analysts say the comments could prove damaging with the president needing support from military voters as he bids for re-election.

The OMB awaits more detailed instruction to carry out Trump's direction, Vought said in the memo.

In his tweets Thursday, Trump said that he "never called John a loser", but he did so publicly during a presidential campaign eventin 2015.

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

Back in 2018 the White House said the visit was cancelled because bad weather had grounded the president's helicopter.

"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", Biden said in a statement released by his campaign.

What has the reaction been?

. "It is a disgrace".

Where do Trump and the USA military stand?

Three senior former US officials, all Republicans, have joined a growing chorus calling for a delay in the mid-September vote on the next leader of Latin America's main development bank, part of growing opposition to the first-ever USA candidate.

But there have been previous spats and controversies.

He even tweeted about his comments later.Trump and McCain - who served for years as a senator from Arizona and was the 2008 Republican presidential nominee - butted heads repeatedly on a number of issues.

Ms. Griffin had no immediate public reaction to Mr. Trump calling for her firing. He received five deferments from a military draft during the Vietnam War - four for academic reasons and one for bone spurs, a calcium build-up in the heels.
