When President Donald Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018, he blamed rain for the last-minute decision, saying that “the helicopter couldn’t fly” and that the Secret Service wouldn’t drive him there. Neither claim was true.

Trump rejected the idea of the visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain, and because he did not believe it important to honor American war dead, according to four people with firsthand knowledge of the discussion that day. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit, Trump said, “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.” In a separate conversation on the same trip, Trump referred to the more than 1,800 marines who lost their lives at Belleau Wood as “suckers” for getting killed.

From the link:
Alyssa Farah, a White House spokesperson, emailed me this statement shortly after this story was posted: “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.”

“ Again, this is 100% false. I was next to @POTUS the whole day! The President was greatly disappointed when told we couldn’t fly there. He was incredibly eager to honor our Fallen Heroes.” - Jordan Karem (Trump’s personal aide)

I wonder if Farage was thinking of these instances when she claimed Trump holds the military in the highest regard

“He’s not a war hero,” said Trump. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

Hahaha stupid freaking Farage in my autocorrect. I just can’t stop hate-tweeting at him, though.

it’s insane that he’s trying to take credit for the Veteran’s Choice healthcare program when that was 1. signed into law by Obama in 2014 and 2. written by McCain

"I was never a big fan of John McCain, disagreed with him on many things including ridiculous endless wars and the lack of success he had in dealing with the VA and our great Vets, but the lowering of our Nations American Flags, and the first class funeral he was given by our Country, had to be approved by me, as President, & I did so without hesitation or complaint. Quite the contrary, I felt it was well deserved. I even sent Air Force One to bring his body, in casket, from Arizona to Washington. It was my honor to do so. Also, I never called John a loser and swear on whatever, or whoever, I was asked to swear on, that I never called our great fallen soldiers anything other than HEROES. This is more made up Fake News given by disgusting & jealous failures in a disgraceful attempt to influence the 2020 Election!" - Donald Trump

i for one am shocked that the white house spokesperson and his aide denied this rather than just owning up and i think that certainly casts a very dubious light on these claims
i mean who would know better than them?

that seems pretty convincing
that's a big oath to take

i feel like someone wouldn't say something like that if they weren't being genuine

noldor, do you believe that he never called mccain a loser?

I mean it’s literally on video
but do you not believe your very eyes and ears?

I just looked up the video where he called him a loser. He was referring to the election in which he lost. So in that respect, he was a loser by anybody's definition.

BUT he wasn't just going around calling John McCain a big fat loser in general.

The complete video where Donald Trump calls John McCain a loser

“I like people who weren’t captured”
he literally says that after calling him a loser

Yeah, I will agree with you there. That's a dumb thing to say. "I like people who weren't captured." It's kind of like saying, I like the people who weren't shot in the war. It's something beyond a person's control.

seems like he also said that as well, we just don’t have it on tape

or at least the tape of him saying it hasn’t been released yet

Not only is there a video, Trump boasted about it in a tweet... because there’s literally a tweet for everything.

AP has also confirmed some of Trump’s comments
1 month ago - Friday 9/4/20 - 2:48:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
but the whitehouse spokesperson said they weren't true?
1 month ago - Friday 9/4/20 - 3:00:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah... it’s very confusing.

On the one hand, there are dozens of instances where Trump’s disdain for the military has been recorded and two outlets who have confirmed the comments. On the other hand, there’s a known liar’s denial. It’s real hard to decide what to believe.

Trump was probably just trying to channel his inner Patton...

"No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country." - - GS Patton
