President Trump’s tumultuous relationship with Fox News continued Friday after journalist Jennifer Griffin backed up previous reporting by The Atlantic that Trump had insulted U.S. military personnel who were killed or captured in action. The president, who has denied the reports, called for Griffin’s firing on Friday night.
Griffin, though, stood by her reporting on Saturday. She told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto that her sources are “unimpeachable” and she feels very confident in her reporting.
- “He was raised in a family that criticized the value of military service”
- “Trump has on rare occasions admitted that he struggles with how to address military issues because of his efforts to get out of service.”
- “Trump’s son, Don Jr., said he might join the military, Trump and his then-wife Ivana, “told him if he did, they’d disown him in a second.””
Even Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who eventually became a loyal Trump lapdog, admits the liar-in-chief has no respect for veterans.
President Donald Trump said he never called John McCain a loser — he did — and denigrated the record of the late Republican senator on veterans affairs despite routinely appropriating one of McCain’s crowning achievements on that front as his own.
