Fox Confirms Trump’s Disparaging Remarks About Troops And Veterans
Fox News national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin reported Friday that she had confirmed much of Jeffrey Goldberg’s recent reporting in The Atlantic on President Trump’s disparaging comments about U.S. service members and veterans.
A former Trump administration senior official told Griffin that Trump said of the Vietnam War “was a stupid war” and “anyone who went was a sucker.” The source also said Trump would say about American veterans, “What’s in it for them? They don’t make any money.”
The source told Griffin: “It was a character flaw of the President. He could not understand why someone would die for their country, not worth it.”
Griffin also confirmed reporting on Trump’s decision to skip visiting the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery, saying the president simply did not want to go.
