Trump called fallen soldiers “suckers” and “losers”

The COVID Diaries 154 – 4th September

There has been outrage in the United States as former members of President Donald Trump’s administration confirmed details of a bombshell report in which Trump referred to fallen soldiers as “suckers” and “losers”.

The Atlantic magazine ran a story on Thursday based on four sources close to the president who said Trump cancelled a visit to pay respects at an American military cemetery outside Paris in 2018 because he thought the dead soldiers were “losers” and “suckers” and he did not want the rain to mess up his hair.
