Biden called Trump “disgusting” over a report that president mocked U.S. soldiers killed in combat as “losers”

Joe Biden called Donald Trump “disgusting” on Friday in a profoundly close to home assault over a report that the commander-in-chief secretly ridiculed U.S. fighters executed in battle as “suckers” and “losers.” Trump, then, arduously denied the report, distributed by The Atlantic on Thursday, and recommended that John Kelly, his previous White House chief of staff, may have been one of the mysterious sources cited in the article.

“It’s disgusting, and it affirms what most of us believe to be true: That Donald Trump is not fit to do the job of president, to be the commander-in-chief. Who the heck does he think he is?” Biden said. The Atlantic report mentioned Trump told senior staff members that he would not like to visit a U.S. military graveyard outside Paris during a 2018 excursion since he considered the fallen fighters there “suckers” and “losers.”
