FEATURING WILLIAM ATTIG – A lengthy report in The Atlantic that revealed Trump’s attitude toward US soldiers who lost their lives has put the President on the defensive. Trump in 2018 canceled a visit to a US military cemetery during a state trip to Paris. According to 4 people who witnessed Trump’s reasoning, he apparently did not want to mess his hair up in the rain and referred to fallen soldiers as “losers,” and “suckers.”
Trump has repeatedly courted the military and veterans, lying repeatedly about his role in passing and signing into law the Veterans Choice bill – an Act that President Obama signed in 2014.
A recent Military Times poll that was done before the bombshell Atlantic article, shows Trump’s support among military personnel having dropped behind Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
