“A Fox News reporter has confirmed that Trump called U.S. soldiers “suckers” and “losers.”
Fox News spent a chunk of its Friday coverage dismissing a report in The Atlantic saying President Donald Trump belittled fallen military members by calling them “suckers” and “losers.”
Then Jennifer Griffin, a national security correspondent for the network, said in a lengthy Twitter thread that former Trump administration officials confirmed the president’s remarks to her.
The Atlantic article cited anonymous sources — which Fox News said suggested the article had been falsified — but two former senior Trump administration officials verified the president’s disparaging comments to Griffin, she said.
