Sep 03 2020
Donald Trump at Belleau Wood called veterans who fell in battle Losers and Suckers according to a new article in The Atlantic. He also suggested that injured veterans were less honorable, and that smart people shouldn't serve in the military. He didn't want to visit cemeteries for loser veterans.
This is also rooted in how he Mocked John McCain for being captured in Vietnam
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”
The president believes that nothing is worth doing without the promise of monetary payback, and that talented people who don’t pursue riches are “losers.” (According to eyewitnesses, after a White House briefing given by the then-chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joe Dunford, Trump turned to aides and said, “That guy is smart. Why did he join the military?”)
