Fox News Joins AP, WaPo In Confirming Bombshell Report That Trump Derided Veterans, Military Service




Fox News has joined the Associated Press and The Washington Post in confirming portions of a bombshell report published by The Atlantic on Thursday that claimed President Donald Trump, in multiple instances, made disparaging remarks about members of the U.S. military who have been captured or killed, including referring to the American war dead at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in France in 2018 as “losers” and “suckers.”

“The Atlantic Magazine is dying, like most magazines, so they make up a fake story in order to gain some relevance. Story already refuted, but this is what we are up against,” Trump falsely claimed Friday morning.



But now, Fox News has corroborated details in a thread posted by Fox News National Security Correspondent Jennifer Griffin.




The president also said he would “swear on whatever, or whoever, I was asked to swear on” that he never called McCain a “loser.”

That claim is unequivocally false and easily debunked by looking at Trump’s own Twitter timeline.

Trump also called McCain a “loser” on video, as part of his remarks disparaging McCain in 2015 for being captured during the Vietnam War.

“He’s a war hero because he was captured,” Trump said. “I like people that weren’t captured.”
