President Trump has on Thursday night heatedly denied that he referred to American soldiers killed in combat during World War I as “losers” and “suckers”.

Taking it to his Twitter account the president said he never called the late Senator John McCain a “loser,” a detail that also appeared in a story published by The Atlantic, which Trump blasted as “Fake News.”

The magazine quoted what they said were four first-hand sources, who said Trump made the disparaging comments towards the fallen Marines the morning of a planned visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in 2018.

It went on to say that the president canceled his visit and asked his senior staff members: “Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.”

Mr. Trump was further accused of calling the dead soldiers “suckers.”

Apparently three sources also told The Atlantic that when McCain died in August 2018, the president said to his aides: “We’re not going to support that loser’s funeral,” and became angry when flags were lowered to half-staff.

Trump also admitted that he was never a big fan” of McCain, but refuted The Atlantic’s account of how he reacted to the death of the former Arizona Senator.

“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,” Trump tweeted.

“Quite the contrary, I felt it was well deserved. I even sent Air Force One to bring his body, in a casket, from Arizona to Washington. It was my honor to do so,” the president concluded.

“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,” the president said in the tweets.
