Trump called on Fox News to fire the journalist on the flaps of veterans


Trump came under fire after Atlantic Magazine reported that he called the Marines killed in World War I "losers" and "saucer" during a November 2018 tour of France when he visited the United States. The military had stopped visiting the cemetery.

The official explanation for this lost tour was bad weather.

Fox News correspondent Jennifer Griffin said two former administration officials had confirmed that the president "did not want to drive in honor of those killed in the American war" at Eisenhower Cemetery outside Paris. It wasn't that there was no element of weather.

An official also told him that Trump used the word "Saussure" to insult the military, but in different contexts related to the Vietnam War.

"When the president talked about the Vietnam War, he said, 'It was a stupid war. Whoever went was Saussure.'

"It was a flaw in the president's character. He could not understand why anyone would die for his country," the source said.

An angry Trump tweeted late Friday: "Jennifer Griffin should be fired for this kind of reporting. We were never asked’ to comment. @ Fox News is gone!"

Trump defended himself in the context of the story in the Atlantic, tweeting and condemning the stories, calling them "fake news." He called Jeffrey Goldberg, the magazine's editor-in-chief, who wrote the piece, called "Slim Ball."

Oddly enough, Trump's friend Fox News was criticized’ for apparently ignoring Griffin's reporting in the coverage of the story.

On its front page on Saturday, a story headlined: "Sources claim Trump visited military cemetery for hating fallen soldiers.

Several of Griffin's colleagues in Fox, along with People's Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger, have publicly defended him on Twitter, calling him "fair and fearless."

"I can tell you that my resources are inaccessible," Griffin said on his network broadcast on Saturday. "My sources are not anonymous to me and I suspect they are anonymous to the president."

Just before the Atlantic published its story, a survey by the Military Times and the Syracuse University Institute of Veterans and Military Families found that only 37.4 percent of active-duty officials supported Trump's re-election bid, compared to 43.1 percent. Who support Biden.
