President Trump responded to a report by The Atlantic claiming he called World War I dead at an American military cemetery in France “losers” and “suckers” were a “hoax.”

He added, however, that the military is likely not in love with him because of his tough stance on NATO and his insistence to end the “endless wars.”

According to Fox News:

“I’m not saying the military’s in love with me,” Trump added, as he advocated for the removal of U.S. troops from “endless wars” and lambasted NATO allies that he says rip off the U.S. “The soldiers are.”

“The top people in the Pentagon probably aren’t because they want to do nothing but fight wars so all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy,” he added.

“Some people don’t like to come home, some people like to continue to spend money,” the president said. “One cold-hearted globalist betrayal after another, that’s what it was.”

Eisenhower wanred of the growing military-industrial complex in his 1961 Farewell Address.

“This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience … In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist,” he said.

President Trump has touted deals with foreign powers to purchase American-made weapons made by defense contractors.

  1. Curiouser and Curiouser. There may be an element of truth here. Some of the biggest lobbyists in Washington are military hardware manufacturers. But keep in mind we do need them.

  2. Our beloved President could never, never and never said something like that! Hi love for America is both DEEP and TRUE for all to see! He is no HYPOCRITE! No one who lives a Truthful could ever accuses our President with that kind of STATEMENT! “The tree is known by its fruit!” His FRUITS are BEAUTIFUL! LOOK AT HIS CHILDREN, HIS WIFE AND, HIS EMPLOYEES! “Thou shalt not bear FALSE WITNESS against thou neighbor!”

  3. The Atlantic newspaper is full of liars trying to stop our President owned by democrat’s who will always never tell the truth.

  4. Having the industrial complex selling military goods deemed non-essential and/or non-secret to foreign powers is not an issue. It’s the involvement by top-echelon military convincing dumb politicians, including Presidents, that they NEED to have American personnel involved. Trump has NOT done that. He has pulled troops out and the brass has fewer lives to play their military involvement ‘chess’ with. They don’t like to lose their power that way.
    Trump’s selling surplus equipment means newer for our troops and getting money for stuff that is phased out or aging out. NOTHING wrong with that.

  5. So called top military brass, who I bet were put there by the obamassss. Seems like trump does not know/needs to learn what it means to clean, from to bottom ….in a fed agency/including the military. Wonder how many of these….top brass…get a good paying job after they leave, or even before they leave by pushing a companies products over another one (follow the money) O yes not only the brass but politicians (both sides) seem to be getting rich while they are in office…..RIGHT.

  6. It’s time to clean house at the Pentagon like Obama did. Get some Brass in that will Help President Trump instead of disrupt him. Fire or Retire the Obama era Generals and Admirals. They are just Dead Weight accepting a paycheck on the tax payers dime.

  7. The one who pen this absurd falsehood about the POTUS should be executed publically for Treason. Show respect to the POTUS, fool.

  8. Don’t forget the “perks” these top brass get from these companies that they give big business to and pay astronomical prices for their products.

  9. Trump needs to do certain things to assure victory. One he needs to arrest all Mayors, Governors, and others who obstruct law enforcement from doing their job of protecting the people, and their property. Then allow law enforcement to kill, catch, or discourage looters, rioters from taking to the streets. He also needs to over haul the FCC. They are not doing their job. Fake News would cease to exist if they did do their jobs. He needs to place the Covid-19 blame on the originators, and enablers, of it. That would be Barack Hussein Obama, and Joe Biden. They made China a favorite nation, and made them, and themselves rich in trade deals which cost us tax payers, but put money in their pockets and China’s pockets. They Gave $$$$$$ millions and millions $$$$$$ of dollars to the Wuhan Lab which created, and released, the deadliest virus in the world…to date. It has cost us trillions of dollars, and killed hundreds of thousand Americans, and millions world wide. So put them behind the eight ball. Expose their criminal deeds!

  10. Barry Davis (aka Obama) had gotten rid of all of the PATRIOTIC ‘brass’ in our Military and then populated our Military with TRAITORS!!

    And…..have people already forgotten when Barry made our Troops run around in WOMEN’S HIGH HEEL PUMPS???

  11. I support the President’s terminating our involvement in these endless and fruitless wars. One has to wonder about our senior military on this subject.
