FACTS

    The Atlantic published an article last week which stated, according to four anonymous sources, that President Trump has repeatedly degraded and belittled fallen soldiers in both word and action. Atlantic editor-in-chief and author of the article Jeffrey Goldberg wrote, among other things, that Trump skipped a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in a 2018 trip to Paris because he “did not believe it important to honor American war dead.” The article continued, stating that Trump asked, “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.”

    LEFT

    The Left believes the claims to be true and vehemently condemns Trump. It was noted that his past words and actions are damning against him.

    “Trump’s insistence that he would never say anything disparaging about a military veteran or the military more generally is belied by, well, facts.”

    Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large

    It is pointed out that even right-winged Fox News reporter Jennifer Griffin confirmed the accounts. Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden stated “I’ve just never been as disappointed in my whole career with a leader that I’ve worked with, president or otherwise.” The Left believes the article will help win over military members and their families for Biden come November. Goldberg insisted that media outlets are regularly forced to “use anonymous sources, especially in a climate where the president of the United States tries to actively intimidate.”

    RIGHT

    The Right is skeptical of the article’s claims and defends the president. Both National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo rejected the accusations against the president as false, and Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper stated, “President Trump has the highest respect and admiration for our nation’s military members, veterans and families.” President Trump called the accusations disgraceful and unthinkable.

    “This report is false. President Trump holds the military in the highest regard. He’s demonstrated his commitment to them at every turn: delivering on his promise to give our troops a much needed pay raise, increasing military spending, signing critical veterans reforms, and supporting military spouses. This has no basis in fact.”

    It was also noted that The Atlantic will soon be hosting a “virtual festival” with speakers including Hillary Clinton, herself a war criminal.
