Trump Accused Of Disrespecting Veterans?


Biden will say anything to tarnish Trump’s name and it’s pathetic.

President Joe Biden, during his visit to France for the 80th anniversary of D-Day, made indirect references to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. On his final day in the country, Biden visited the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery, located about 50 miles from Paris. This cemetery is the resting place for 2,289 American soldiers who mostly perished in a pivotal World War I battle.

During his visit, Biden highlighted the significance of the cemetery and implicitly criticized Trump’s 2018 decision to skip a visit to the same site due to inclement weather. “More Marines were lost here than in any battle until World War II,” Biden remarked. “The notion of coming to Normandy and not taking the short trip here to honor their sacrifice… think about it. America showed up.”


In 2018, Trump had planned to visit the cemetery but canceled the trip citing bad weather conditions. Typically, presidents use helicopters for short trips, but Trump’s team indicated that motorcading in heavy rain would have taken too long. Controversy followed when a report, based on anonymous sources, claimed Trump referred to the fallen Marines as “suckers” and the cemetery as “filled with losers.” Although Biden did not bring up these alleged comments during his visit, he has mentioned them in the past.

Trump and his supporters have vehemently denied the allegations. Shortly after Biden’s comments, the Republican National Committee (RNC) released a statement. “It wasn’t true in 2020 and it’s still not true now — but no disgusting lies are beneath Biden,” stated RNC spokesman Jake Schneider. The RNC cited a CBS report that confirmed the cancellation was due to weather conditions and noted that 15 of Trump’s associates have refuted the claims.

Biden also emphasized the importance of international alliances, a point he often uses to contrast his views with Trump’s. “The idea that we could avoid engaging in significant conflicts in Europe is unrealistic,” Biden said. “It’s crucial to maintain our alliances, strengthen NATO, and continue the collaborative efforts that have been vital since World War II.”
