Trump blasts media, Democrats over report he disparaged USA troops

Trump blasts media, Democrats over report he disparaged USA troops”

Almost 700 American veterans signed a letter in support of President Donald Trump after it was reported that he allegedly disparaged World War I veterans in 2018.

"They will say anything, like their recent lies about me and the Military, and hope that it sticks. But #MAGA gets it!"

The White House fiercely rejected the article after it was first published Thursday.

It alleges that Trump said: "We're not going to support that loser's funeral", and grew angry when flags were lowered to half-mast in McCain's honour. "Guy was a f***ing loser", he supposedly said. She also said her sources claimed the president objected to including "wounded guys" in a parade, saying it wasn't "a good look", and that Americans "don't like that". Kelly himself declined to comment on that claim.

"It is a commander in chief proud of his troops", she said.

Trump's next target was journalist Jennifer Griffin, the national security correspondent for Fox News - once considered one of the most pro-Trump stations.

President Donald Trump on Sunday called on his fans to inundate The Atlantic's co-owner, Laurene Powell Jobs, with messages after the magazine reported that he once called American soldiers killed in combat "losers" and "suckers".

Several of Ms Griffin's colleagues at Fox have publicly defended her on Twitter, along with Republican congressman Adam Kinzinger, who called her "fair and unafraid". "Anyone who went was a sucker". Trump avoided being drafted to fight in Vietnam after he was diagnosed with bone spurs in his heels. "I've never seen that". I thought it was a awful war.

The president, seeking re-election on a promise to restore "law and order", told Fox News the plane was "completely loaded with thugs wearing these dark uniforms, black uniforms with gear and this and that", adding, "Here were like seven people on the plane like this person and then a lot of people were on the plane to do big damage".

"Not every line of The Atlantic article did I confirm", she admitted. Numerous reporters, however, have come out to confirm the piece.

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, a Republican, told "This Week" that in his experience, Trump has "been extremely respectful, exactly what you would respect a president in regard to any reference, any conversation, you know, in regard to the military".

"It never happened. I talked to the president that day".

Regime change in the USA?

"It's mortifying, it's embarrassing and it's risky", Biden said.

"I've been with this president coming on four years".
