    Donald Trump angrily slams report he called dead troops ‘suckers and losers’ as ‘LIES’

    Donald Trump angrily slams report he called dead troops ‘suckers and losers’ as ‘LIES’ as he is challenged over the military at town hall with voters – but calls Jim Mattis ‘disgruntled’ and attacks John McCain again

    • President Donald Trump angrily slammed The Atlantic’s report that said he called American war dead ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’ 
    • Trump was asked about the story by a Pennsylvania voter at ABC News’ town hall Tuesday night, to which the president said it was ‘lies’ 
    • He also gave new details about the story’s claim that he didn’t want to go to an American cemetery in France because he’d get his hair wet
    • ‘I wanted to go anyway. I said let me just go separately in a car in disguise, I don’t care,’ the president said 
    • Trump continued to complain about the late Sen. John McCain and said former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis was a ‘disgruntled employee’ out to get him  

    President Donald Trump angrily slammed The Atlantic’s report that said he called dead American soldiers ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’ after a voter at ABC News’ Tuesday night town hall asked how he’d win back military support.  

    ‘It’s easy,’ he declared. ‘Because I never made those statements. They were never made by me.’ 

    The president also gave new information about one of the most memorable anecdotes from the piece – which claimed he skipped visiting an American cemetery in France because he didn’t want to get his hair wet. 

    ‘I wanted to go anyway. I said let me just go separately in a car in disguise, I don’t care. I wanted to be there so badly,’ Trump went on. ‘But the statements never happened. They were lies.’ 

    President Donald Trump angrily slammed The Atlantic’s report that said he called dead American soldiers ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’ and told a town hall audience he didn’t need to build back support of military members ‘because I never made those statements’ 

    Alexandra Stehman asked Trump about the comments he reportedly made about American war dead and servicemembers, along with things he's said publicly about the late Sen. John McCain

    Alexandra Stehman asked Trump about the comments he reportedly made about American war dead and servicemembers, along with things he’s said publicly about the late Sen. John McCain 

    The late Sen. John McCain

    Former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis

    Trump said his feelings about the late Sen. John McCain (left) were well known, while also blasting his former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis (right), saying Mattis was among the ‘disgruntled former employees’ who lied about him 

    The president tried to suggest it was a Democratic conspiracy. 

    ‘This magazine came up. They made up this quote. It was a made up quote and you know, the gloves are off with Biden – who I’ve never respected greatly – I’ve never respected him greatly,’ Trump said, inserting the name of his Democratic opponent. 

    He asked the woman who posed the question, a Pennsylvania voter named Alexandra Stehman, ‘Do you know what disinformation is?’

    ‘That’s what it was. They made up a phony quote, and then they went with it. It was a phony deal. And then one who started it was a big friend of President Obama and Clinton,’ Trump continued. ‘And it was a phony deal from a very – not very successful magazine.’   

    Trump added that both ’25 people’ and also ’26 people’ vouched for him.  

    When moderator George Stephanopoulos pointed out that former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly didn’t come to Trump’s defense after the article was published, Trump referred to them as ‘people that I let go.’ 

    ‘These are disgruntled former employees,’ Trump said. 

    Stehman had also asked Trump about previous statements he’s made about the late Sen. John McCain, which the president admitted to doing. 

    ‘As far as John McCain, I was never a fan of John McCain. I never thought he treated our vets well, he didn’t do the job,’ Trump said. ‘I was never a fan of his. But – and I think that’s fine and everybody knows that, and I said it to his face.’   

    The president then pointed to the peace deals the U.S. brokered as part of his commitment to get the country out of endless wars.  

    ‘You know, I go to Dover and I greet, oftentimes, soldiers coming in, and they’re dead,’ Trump said. ‘And there’s no sadder thing than to sit with a widow or a mother, and watch these big massive cargo planes, and that back opens up and these incredible Marines are walking off a casket and they were killed in the Middle East.’ 

    ‘And in many ways nobody even knows why,’ Trump said. 

    He called going into the Middle East the country’s ‘worst decision.’ 

    ‘And, by the way, Iraq did not – you know, Saddam Hussein did not knock down the World Trade Center, in case you don’t know and I’m sure you do know that,’ the president said. 

    The president turned his attention back to Mattis before the end of his rant. 

    Mattis had been a source for journalist Bob Woodward’s new book that came out this week.

    Trump suggested that had Mattis remained at the Pentagon there would be no peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. 

    ‘A guy like Jim Mattis could have never done it because they were all doing it the old-fashioned way,’ Trump said. ‘They were going in the wrong outlets and the wrong doors.’
