President Trump has a long history of disrespecting American soldiers, writes Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic. Him saying John McCain was "not a war hero" and attacking the parents of Humayun Khan, who died serving in Iraq, were major insults. Particularly so since Trump avoided serving in Vietnam due to alleged bone spurs in his feet. More recently, he reportedly called US soldiers that died in WW2 "losers" and "suckers." Over the years, Trump has told many lies about his support for the military, which were easily disproven. Unlike previous presidents, Trump's disrespect for US soldiers has become crystal clear.
President Trump has always demonstrated a strong respect for America's soldiers, reports Deroy Murdock of The Spectator. The recent Atlantic story alleging certain insulting comments made in private is not rooted in reality. Several people involved in the alleged incidents called this story a falsehood. Referring to unaccountable anonymous people is not a reliable source. Another anecdote about the president refusing to attend a ceremony in honor of fallen troops during WW2 due to rain was disproven by him giving a speech in the rain the very next day. Efforts to smear the president belie his real admiration for our troops.
