Media Attack Fail: Here’s How Many U.S. Veterans Just Came Out To Support Trump

(Liberty Bell) – We’ve had some pretty ridiculous news cycles this year, but this week might just take the cake.

As political division reaches a fever pitch across the US and the Democrats cope with the chilling reality that they’re failing the 2020 election miserably, The Atlantic just published an inflammatory piece claiming Trump disparaged American WWI veterans (as if anyone ever would, let alone a man who has consistently and unfailingly shown a distinct genuine affection for our veterans and service members).

Many have come out to refute the claim, including several who were actually on the European trip during which Trump is alleged to have called the fallen soldiers “losers.”

Now, over 700 American veterans have issued an open letter declaring their emphatic support for President Donald Trump in the face of these wild accusations.

Breitbart got the exclusive story, and they report:

This week, The Atlantic journalist Jeffrey Goldberg published a story citing anonymous sources, claiming that Trump did not want to visit the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery at the site of Battle of Belleau Wood in 2018. The story, citing those anonymous sources, claims Trump called the cemetery “filled with losers” and referred to fallen soldiers who died at Belleau Wood as “suckers.”

In an open letter obtained exclusively by Breitbart News, about 674 veterans wrote that their support for Trump, against attacks by the establishment media, remains unwavering because of his record of supporting the United States military and ending foreign wars.

“Recent baseless media attacks against President Trump from anonymous sources are just another example of the depths to which the President’s opponents are willing to descend to divide the nation and meddle in this election,” the veterans write.

“Anyone who knows President Trump has seen his love and reverence for our military and veterans. That is why we, veterans from every generation, are writing today to reaffirm our support for President Trump,” they continue:

We heard these same attacks in 2018 immediately following the President’s trip to Paris, and they are just as fake now as they were then. The false allegations center on the President’s canceled trip to a military cemetery, which has been proven to be a “bad weather call” made for safety and security reasons. This has been proven by internal White House emails from the time, as well as by documents from the U.S. Navy, which clearly described weather as the reason for the cancellation. While the media relied on four anonymous individuals to manufacture the story, many more current and former White House officials have stepped forward and, on the record, refuted these baseless allegations. These on-the-record voices include the Secret Service agent in charge of the President’s detail and John Bolton – a vocal critic of the President – who described the “bad weather call” in his book and now says he did not hear the President say the things being attributed to him. No one should take this story seriously.

Throughout his administration, President Trump has consistently stood by our men and women in uniform and cared for them once they have returned to civilian life. From groundbreaking legislation that provides veterans with real and permanent health care choice, to the largest-ever investment in the United States military, to his firm commitment to preventing endless wars and bringing troops home, President Trump has demonstrated his unwavering support for America’s service members time and time again. Moreover, he has spent countless hours as president visiting battlefields and cemeteries, honoring Gold Star families and comforting them in their grief, and praising wounded warriors and honoring their sacrifice.

The veterans condemn Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s record on military and veterans issues, writing “the Mainstream Media hurled this baseless attack against President Trump because they know Joe Biden’s record simply does not stand up to scrutiny, and they seek to distract the American people from that fact.”

The veterans continue:

Under the Obama-Biden Administration, the Department of Veterans Affairs was a disaster and our military was decimated. Today, Joe Biden is running on a radical left-wing agenda that would further weaken America’s security and standing in the world. Joe Biden’s friends in the media know he does not deserve the support of our nation’s service members, so they have fabricated a total lie in a desperate attempt to attack their opponent.

The American people have learned to discount lies spewed by anonymous sources and paraded around by a biased media bent on destroying the President. President Trump’s tireless efforts to strengthen and support the military community are a part of his indisputable record. He has done more for our nation’s service members and veterans than any previous administration. The veteran community firmly rejects these lies from the mainstream media, and we stand by our Commander-in-Chief, now, and on Election Day.

  1. Does anyone remember Obama snubbing the veterans during his inauguration night so he could be with his Hollywood and rich friends? This was a tradition for a President to attend, honor and remember veterans for their service. This disgraceful act began at the top so liberals you should be embarrassed. President Trump has always supported our troops and veterans with praise and acknowledgement.

  2. So many of us knew it was another rat tale…… But there maybe some who will believe all things said by the demonrats! YUCKING LIARS ALL!

  3. Just another Dem hit job! NO credibility left in anything they spew. Pay attention to what they are not saying – Dems are hiding their anti-American agenda! What Dems want for America would scare the hell out of every American so they resort to LIES and SCARE TACTICS. Worst of all Biden is PRO-CHINA! TRUMP is PRO-AMERICA! Save America VOTE TRUMP, Keep Senate Majority and Take Back House

  4. Trump is a cowardly draft dodger who mocked McCain when he was healthy, dying and even after his death. He has called soldiers suckers previously and this is not a story but the truth about America’s newest traitor. The record for the G.O.P. has been to cut Veteran’s benefits when they have the power to give massive tax break to the super wealthy. In the Vietnam Era Clinton was one of the very few Democrat politicians that dodged the draft the list of Republican chicken hawks is near endless with Gingrich, Rove, Boehner, Cheney, Tom Delay, and despite being swift boated John Kerry won many awards getting his ass shot at on the PT boat while George W was nowhere to be found. Former Senator Bob Kerrey of Nebraska won the Medal of Honor. Go check the Republican Vietnam Era draft dodgers and you will see the disgusting list of right wingers on there including Phil Gramm, Trent Lott and so many more.

    • Oh you are so correct! And keep in mind, Breitbart is already widely regarded as an unreliable Questionable Source (per Media Bias/Fact Check). And since I submitted this site to them as well, in the near future, it will share the same fate. An non-credible Questionable Source, and reasons abound as to why they will be!!

  5. President Trump has given at least part of his salary to the veterans. Nasty lying corrupt psychopath demon rats are a Cancer in our society.

  6. I am a USMC combat vet and support Trump as much as he has supported us. I am sick of these lying manipulative Dems and leftists. Watch for a LOT of voter fraud come this November. I hope there are those who will expose these anti-American leftists so we can keep MAGA happening.

  7. This of course is an attack job , created by running scared libs, Trump has done more for the military and veterans while in his turbulent term in office than most of the last presidents. Who would want the kind of people running our country like the ones who fabricate stories, one after another toward a man who is just trying to help keep this country prosperous .get more people working , undue some things that have not worked in the past? Some are afraid that he will show the world that what they have done in their political career has not done much for the country.

  8. Jeffery Goldberg a little liberal piss ant should be fired. the American people and my fellow veterans are so sick of these liberal lies and complete hit jobs. Trump has done more for veterans than Reagan. The next time I see an Atlantic I’ll ask the owner why he is selling it. Boycott

  9. President Donald Trump has done more for the active duty, reserve and retired military than any President since Ronald Reagan. I compare him to FDR. As a retired Naval Officer of 25 years, having served in all 9 enlisted ratings, 4 Warrant grades and 3 commissioned grades and retiring as a Lieutenantt, Limted Duty Officer in 1979, I had the displeasure of seeing my Navy nearly destroyed and then rebuilt. President Donald Trump is a supreme leader and supporter of our military services and will go down in history as such. God willing and the creek does not rise, I will be there in Nov 2020, once again voting to ‘Keep America Great Again’. FROM A PROUD AMERICAN AND RETIRED SERVICEMAN
