Trump Denies Account of Him Disparaging U.S. War Dead, McCain

Sep.04 -- President Donald Trump, speaking to reporters at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on Thursday night, strongly denied a report that he had belittled Americans who died in the nation’s wars. According to the article in The Atlantic, Trump skipped a planned 2018 visit to the graves of American Marines killed defending Paris in the closing days of World War I, saying: “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.” The account also contained allegations that Trump referred to the late Republican Senator John McCain, a longtime prisoner of war in North Vietnam, as a “loser.”
