President Donald Trump continued to push back today against The Atlantic’s story accusing him of disparaging slain military veterans, offering retweeted rebuttals from his supporters and former staff.
Trump also attacked Fox News, where national security correspondent Jennifer Griffin issued a report on Friday backing up some details of The Atlantic story, which said he had referred to slain American soldiers buried at a French cemetery as “losers” and “suckers.” Griffin cited four anonymous sources in her reporting, something Trump took issue with.
“All refuted by many witnesses. Jennifer Griffin should be fired for this kind of reporting. Never even called us for comment. @FoxNews is gone!” Trump tweeted.
