MILITARY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Now, all of a sudden, somebody makes up this horrible story that I didn’t want to go [to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018]. And then they make up an even worse story — an even worse story, calling certain names to our fallen heroes. It’s a disgrace that a magazine is able to write it.
And anybody that — if the — if they really exist, if people really exist that would have said that, they’re low-lives and they’re liars. And I would be willing to swear on anything that I never said that about our fallen heroes. There is nobody that respects them more. So I just think it’s a horrible, horrible thing.”
