Bolton Says Claims Trump Disparaged U.S. Troops Are ‘Simply False’

Former National Security Advisor John Bolton said claims asserted by anonymous sources who told The Atlantic that President Donald Trump called fallen U.S. troops and wounded veterans ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’ while on a diplomatic visit to France in 2018 are “simply false.” President Trump has also denied making such comments.

“According to what that article said, the president made disparaging remarks about soldiers and people buried in the cemetery in connection with the decision for him not to go to the ceremony that was planned that afternoon, and that was simply false,” Bolton told Fox News host Martha MacCallum Monday night.

Bolton also said he included the story of that visit to France in his book “The Room Where it Happened,” where he describes exactly why a trip to a cemetery for American war heroes was canceled.

“The main issue was whether or not weather conditions permitted the president to go out to the cemetery,” Bolton asserted, saying Trump accepted the logistical recommendation.

Not a single unnamed source has come out of the shadows to back The Atlantic’s story. The news site’s Editor in Chief Jeffrey Goldberg, who wrote the piece, told CNN host Brian Stelter over the weekend of his decision to publish a piece solely based on anonymous sources, “The formula is simple. What you do is does the public’s right to know or need to know a particular piece of information outweigh the morally complicated and ambiguous qualities of anonymous sourcing?”

Bolton, however, wasn’t the only key source to deny the anonymously made claims. Former Deputy White House Chief of Staff Zach Fuentes exclusively told Breitbart News, “You can put me on record denying that I spoke with The Atlantic. I don’t know who the sources are. I did not hear POTUS call anyone losers when I told him about the weather. Honestly, do you think General Kelly would have stood by and let ANYONE call fallen Marines losers?”

Darrell Brooks found guilty on 76 charges in Waukesha Christmas Parade murders

Six people died and at least another 61 people were injured when a red Ford Escape SUV driven by Darrell Brooks drove through a holiday parade on November 21, 2021. Almost a year later, after a long and intense dramatic legal battle, Brooks has been found guilty.

40 year old Brooks defended himself in court after killing his victims who ranged in age from 8 to 81. It took Waukesha County Circuit Judge Jennifer Dorow about 25 minutes to read the guilty verdicts on all 76 charges.

Brooks’ case garnered national media attention in part due to the liberal policies which allowed him to walk the streets and commit this crime. Brooks had been freed previously on a mere $1,000 bail from an earlier case in Milwaukee County. A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel analysis found that bail to be considerably lower than the average of similar open cases. He also had been assessed as a high risk for release. Nonetheless, he was released on the streets only to commit murder not long after.

City of Waukesha officials welcomed the trial’s end. “I am thankful that the jury found the defendant guilty on all counts,” said Mayor Shawn Reilly. “We can now re-focus on taking steps forward as a community and continue the healing process.”

“The victims’ families as well as our first responders continue to deal with the lasting effects of the horrors of that day,” said Police Chief Dan Thompson. ” We are grateful for the support that has come from all over the world, and we ask you to continue to keep all those involved in your prayers.”

A statement from the city read, in part, “As a community, we still have a long road ahead filled with difficult days. This will be especially true as we approach the one-year anniversary of the tragedy. However, as we have experienced the past year, we know that when we stand together, we remain Waukesha Strong.”
