WaPo: Trump Called People Who Served In Vietnam "Losers"
"Trump believed people who served in the Vietnam War must be “losers” because they hadn’t gotten out of it, according to a person familiar with the comments. Trump also complained bitterly to then-Chief of Staff John F. Kelly that he didn’t understand why Kelly and others in the military treated McCain, who had been imprisoned and tortured during the Vietnam War, with such reverence. “Isn’t he kind of a loser?” Trump asked, according to the person familiar with Trump’s comments."
The report by the Atlantic cites four unnamed people with firsthand knowledge of the president’s comments. The White House calls the claims ‘false.’
The Washington Post is reporting that President Trump called people who served in the Vietnam War "losers" because they couldn't find a way to get out of the war.
