Trump Urges Biden to Pull Ad Calling Fallen Soldiers ‘Suckers’

( – Former President Donald Trump has positioned himself as a man who loves the military. He even endorsed Sam Brown, an Afghanistan war veteran and Purple Heart recipient. The ex-POTUS has also demanded President Joe Biden take down an ad that he’s running.

In 2020, before the presidential election, a report claimed that Trump called American soldiers who died on French soil during World War I “losers.” The comments were reportedly made before he visited the Aisne-Marne Cemetery, which was later canceled because of bad weather. He was also accused of calling Marines killed at Belleau Wood, where the US stopped the German march to Paris in 1918, “suckers” for dying during the offensive. The report claimed the then-president asked, “Who were the good guys in this war?”

Trump denied ever making comments like the one in the report. His White House released a statement calling the report “patently false” and saying he held “the military in the highest regard.”

Biden has been running a campaign ad using the report and clips of Trump saying, “I like people that weren’t captured,” in reference to the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ). On June 9, Trump demanded the president take down the attack ad. At a campaign stop in Las Vegas, Nevada, he touched on the issue during his rally.

Trump told the crowd that Biden was claiming he called dead soldiers “suckers and losers” but said the entire report was “made up.” He said the president’s campaign knows the report is “phony” but they are using it in an ad anyway because they “are sick people.”

The former president also posted about the ad on Truth Social, calling it “another Democrat Disinformation ‘hit job.’” He called on Biden to “Take down the Fake Ad.” Later, he posted again and denied making the statement and told his supporters to “remember that it comes from the FASCIST SCUM that is destroying” America.
