Biden Campaign Pushes Debunked Atlantic Story About Fabricated Trump Comments On Fallen Soldiers

The Biden campaign has once again come under fire for pushing a long-debunked story published by The Atlantic in 2020, which accused then-President Donald Trump of refusing to visit the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in 2018 because he allegedly called the troops buried there “suckers” and “losers.” Despite the story being thoroughly discredited by numerous Trump administration officials, including former National Security Adviser John Bolton — who is far from a friendly to Trump — the Biden campaign continues to use it in their latest ad.

Bolton, who is not known for his support of Trump, stated in September 2020 that he was present when the decision was made not to visit the cemetery and that it was “entirely a weather-related decision.” He also noted that he did not hear Trump make any comments resembling those reported by The Atlantic.

The mainstream media had previously claimed that former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly confirmed the allegations made by The Atlantic. However, those closest to Kelly have stated that he would not have tolerated such comments from Trump, especially given that Kelly lost a son in Afghanistan.

FOIA documents have also definitively proven that Trump’s visit to the cemetery was canceled due to inclement weather. Even Jeffrey Goldberg, the editor-in-chief of The Atlantic, admitted that the cancellation was likely due to bad weather when confronted with the evidence.

Critics argue that the Biden campaign’s decision to continue pushing this debunked story is a sign of desperation, as they know they are losing ground and rely on the mainstream media to not correct the narrative.
