In retrospect, it is noteworthy to recall the period during which the media with a left-leaning inclination alleged that former President Donald Trump had made derogatory statements towards individuals who had sustained injuries in military service.
Given the apparent lack of other engagements, it is evident that they are reviving a certain fallacious narrative.
In an exclusive interview with CNN, John Kelly, the former White House Chief of Staff during the Trump administration, provided confirmation of the alleged remarks made by the former president, wherein injured veterans were referred to as “losers” and “suckers.”
Kelly set the record straight with on-the-record confirmation of a number of damning stories about statements Trump made behind closed doors attacking US service members and veterans, listing a number of objectionable comments Kelly witnessed Trump make firsthand.
“What can I add that has not already been said?” Kelly said, when asked if he wanted to weigh in on his former boss in light of recent comments made by other former Trump officials. “A person that thinks those who defend their country in uniform, or are shot down or seriously wounded in combat, or spend years being tortured as POWs are all ‘suckers’ because ‘there is nothing in it for them.’ A person that did not want to be seen in the presence of military amputees because ‘it doesn’t look good for me.’ A person who demonstrated open contempt for a Gold Star family – for all Gold Star families – on TV during the 2016 campaign, and rants that our most precious heroes who gave their lives in America’s defense are ‘losers’ and wouldn’t visit their graves in France.”
Have we not previously addressed this matter?
Indeed, it has been determined that we have.
The initial assertions on Trump’s remarks were derived from a piece published in The Atlantic, which alleged that the ex-president declined to attend a memorial dedicated to World War I in France at the time when the aforementioned comments were made. Nevertheless, all individuals associated with President Trump, including those who eventually became his adversaries, refuted these allegations.
Former and current White House officials angrily denied a report that President Trump disparaged American war dead, saying instead that he was “livid” that bad weather meant he could not visit a French cemetery for U.S. soldiers killed in World War I.
White House official has sent an image of redacted email apparently showing “bad weather call” was indeed cause of Trump not attending Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in 2018.

The controversy stems from 2018, when Trump was expected to lay a wreath at Aisne-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial, a trip abandoned at the last moment on the grounds that heavy rain made conditions unsuitable for helicopter travel.
Subsequent correspondence unveiled that President Trump’s absence from the memorial event was attributed to adverse weather conditions, rather than a deliberate act of contempt towards the American veterans who fought in World War I.

The assertions made by John Bolton, the former National Security Advisor to President Trump, who harbors a notable lack of affinity for the previous president, include a denial of having made the aforementioned comments. Furthermore, Bolton substantiated the contents of the email, providing an explanation for Trump’s absence from the memorial event.
It is advisable that CNN do a more comprehensive investigation into this particular narrative prior to engaging a former Trump administration employee in order to avoid the dissemination of unsubstantiated claims for the purpose of gaining political advantage.
Indeed, those who make Trump an enemy should take heed.
In September, Trump warned the political elites in Washington, D.C., regarding the potential consequences they may face should he regain the presidency in 2024.
Trump made a post on the social media platform Truth Social.
“The Crooked Joe Biden Campaign has thrown so many Indictments and lawsuits against me that Republicans are already thinking about what we are going to do to Biden and the Communists when it’s our turn.”
“They have started a whole new Banana Republic way of thinking about political campaigns. It’s so cheap and dirty, but that’s where America is right now. Be careful what you wish for!” Trump stated, seemingly warning them of the consequences of their actions.
The Department of Justice under Joe Biden, along with members of the Democratic Party, has brought forth 91 indictments against former President Donald Trump. These charges have been subject to scrutiny, leading some to draw comparisons between the current state of affairs in the United States and that of a banana republic.
Nevertheless, President Trump’s political influence appears to be bolstered by each indictment, as his loyal supporters interpret the allegations as a unifying call to action for the upcoming 2024 election.
In a recent statement, Tucker Carlson expressed concerns on the potential recourse of the deep state establishment, suggesting that their perceived inability to achieve their objectives thus far may lead them to contemplate the assassination of President Trump.
“They protested him; they called him names. He won anyway.” Tucker observed.
“They impeached him twice on ridiculous pretenses,” he added.
“He became more popular. Then, they indicted him three more times. And every single time his popularity rose,” then he warned of the possibility of an assassination attempt on Trump.
During a conversation with Glenn Beck in August, former President Donald Trump expressed his intention to incarcerate the individuals he perceives as “sick and evil” inside the Washington, D.C. elite, who he believes are actively working to undermine his presidency, upon assuming the presidency in 2024.
“You said in 2016, you know, ‘lock her up.’ And then when you became President, you said, ‘We don’t do that in America.’ That’s just not the right thing to do,” Beck told Trump.
Beck then asked, “That’s what they’re doing. Do you regret not locking her up? And if you’re President again, will you lock people up?”
Trump answered, “Well, I’ll give you an example. Uh, the answer is you have no choice because they’re doing it to us.”
