Trump Emphatically Denies Disparaging US Military

A new article in The Atlantic makes some pretty big claims against President Trump. According to sources interviewed for the piece, the President made disparaging remarks about people who serve in the military, calling fallen US soldiers “losers” and “suckers”.

The President pushed back on the article, calling it “fake news” and boasting an increased military budget and pay raises for personnel.
