Trump calls wounded and killed American soldiers "losers" and "suckers"

Please share this informative article with friends, especially Trump supporters who are vets or now serving in the military.  

It's enough to make you weep 😪.... what must the veterans and present military troops who support him think of these contemptuous comments byTrump?  Or do they even know about it?  This article in the respected magazine The Atlantic tells many facts about Commander-in-Chief Trump's true feelings about the military (which he never served in because of 5 deferments for his claim of a "heel spur").  He revealed his disdain for military heroism in public when he said about John McCain,  "He's a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren't captured. The following article tells more verifiably witnessed facts about the president's disrespect and contempt for the military. He has repeatedly disparaged the intelligence of service members, and asked that wounded veterans be kept out of military parades, multiple sources have told The Atlantic.   I hope more of our troops hear of this as they get ready to vote.

As for Trump's heel spurs, many reports have now come out that he never had any. As he said scornfully to his lawyer, "I'm not dumb. Do you think I was going to go to Vietnam?"  See:   and

EXCERPT from article:  When President Donald Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, he blamed rain for the last-minute decision, saying that "the helicopter couldn't fly" and that the Secret Service wouldn't drive him there. Neither claim was true.

Trump rejected the idea of the visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain, and because he did not believe it important to honor American war dead, according to four people with firsthand knowledge of the discussion that day. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit, Trump said, "Why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers." In a separate conversation on the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as "suckers" for getting killed.
