Trump: I Never Called Dead Soldiers ‘Losers and Suckers’

( – Former President Trump once again denied calling deceased U.S. soldiers “suckers” and “losers” after Joe Biden visited the cemetery in France that Trump skipped during his 2018 trip.

“Obviously, I never said that dead Soldiers are ‘losers and suckers.’ Who would say such a thing?” Trump posted on Truth Social and labeled the claim as “made up disinformation” from his opponents.

“Anytime you see that despicable FAKE statement used, remember that it comes from the FASCIST SCUM that is destroying our Country,” he added.

Trump’s words came after Biden’s visit to Aisne-Marne American Cemetery, where over 2,200 U.S. soldiers from World War I are buried.

While Biden did not mention Trump during his visit, the stop was seen as a subtle rebuke to the former president and likely 2024 GOP nominee.

During his 2018 France trip, Trump canceled a visit to the same cemetery due to bad weather.

The Atlantic reported in 2020 that Trump asked, “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.”

The magazine also wrote that Trump referred to war dead as “suckers” for getting killed. Although Trump has denied these remarks, his former chief of staff John Kelly said that the alleged remarks were true.

During a recent rally in Las Vegas, Trump called the alleged comments “disinformation” reported by the “fake news.”

“Think of it from a practical standpoint, I’m standing there with generals and military people, in a cemetery and I look at them, I say, ‘These people are suckers and losers,’” he said.

“Now, think of it. Unless you’re a psycho or a crazy person or a very stupid person—who would say that anyway—but who would say it to military people?” he added.

Biden and his campaign have repeatedly referenced the alleged comments on the campaign trail to portray Trump as disrespectful of veterans and military service members.

Since Trump is ahead of Biden in key battleground states, a campaign ad from the Democrat showed side-by-side footage of fallen American soldiers returning home with Trump’s alleged.
