President Trump never bashed America’s war dead as “losers,” according to the US ambassador to France and Monaco — who was there the day he’s accused of making the disparaging remarks.
Ambassador Jamie McCourt is the latest public official to push back against the report published by The Atlantic late last week.
“In my presence, POTUS has NEVER denigrated any member of the US military or anyone in service to our country. And he certainly did not that day, either,” McCourt told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview.
“Let me add, he was devastated to not be able to go to the cemetery at Belleau Wood. In fact, the next day, he attended and spoke at the ceremony in Suresnes in the pouring rain.” . . .
McCourt was present in 2018 on the day Trump had to call off a trip to the Belleau Wood cemetery because of inclement weather. She denied speaking to The Atlantic, which based its report on “four people with firsthand knowledge of the discussion that day.” (Read more from “U.S. Ambassador Says Trump Never Disparaged War Veterans” HERE)
