Biden Slams Trump Over Alleged Comments Mocking US Troops
WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has declared President Donald Trump “unfit” for the presidency, delivering an impassioned reaction to a report that Trump — who never served in uniform — allegedly mocked American war dead.
Defending himself, Trump says the allegations published by The Atlantic are false. Biden is intensifying his efforts to frame the 2020 election as a referendum on the president’s character.
The allegations, sourced anonymously, describe multiple offensive comments by the president toward fallen U.S. service-members, including calling World War I dead at an American military cemetery in France “losers” and “suckers” in 2018.
Trump calls it “Fake News.”
