Journalistic information claims that the president Trump did not go to a military cemetery of fallen from World War for considering them “losers”.

After criticizing senior Army and Pentagon commanders, U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday in front of his supporters during an election rally in North Carolina: “No one loves the military more than I do!”.

President Trump retracts

His words were greeted with applause from the thousands of people who gathered in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, a key state for the November election, in which Trump seeks re-election and will face Democrat Joe Biden.

“Things have been invented, it’s called misinformation, they got a fake deal. They did it two days ago with the military. No one loves the military more than I do!” cried the representative.

Trump was referring to the article he published Thursday for The Atlantic magazine, which stated that in 2018 he refused to visit the Aisne-Marne military cemetery, where Americans were lying down at the Battle of Belleau Wood in World War I because it was full of “losers” and “suckers”.

Several media outlets, such as The Washington Post, CNN, and Fox News, have confirmed that this information is true.

“We don’t need to be in the Middle East”

At the rally, Trump again criticized previous U.S. governments that have engaged the country in “eternal wars” and boasted that he brought “peace” to the Middle East while questioning the presence of U.S. troops in that oil-rich part of the world.

He argued that the United States has gone from an importer to an oil and natural gas exporter thanks to hydraulic fracturing and therefore considered that Washington should decrease its presence in that region.

“The fact is that we no longer have to be in the Middle East just to protect Israel; we’ve been very good to Israel. We don’t need to be in the Middle East, you know?” he told his followers.

“There was a time,” he added, “that we did desperately need it, but we don’t need it anymore. We have more than them, don’t we? After years of helping rebuild other countries, we are now finally building our country. America first!”

Against the army’s senior command

His words come just after a press conference on Monday criticized his country’s Army and Pentagon high command because he says they wage wars to increase the activity of companies working in the defense sector.

This Monday, Trump said: “I’m not going to say the military (dome) is in love with me. The soldiers are, the people at the top of the Pentagon probably not because they just want to fight in wars and that all those wonderful companies make bombs and build planes and keep them happy.”

In the face of this, in an unusual public statement in the understated military state, army chief of staff, General James C. McConville, said today that “military leaders would only recommend sending troops if required by national security and as a last resort.”

Military families declare themselves 55% conservative; but according to last month’s Military Times poll, the Republican is losing ground among uniforms with only 37.4 percent inclined to vote for him and 41.3 percent who prefer Democratic candidate Joe Biden.

Neither Trump nor Biden have fought in the Army, but the son of the former vice president, Beau, who died of cancer in 2015, did wear U.S. military uniform during the Iraq War.
