Trump called killed and captured American soldiers ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’, allege reports

Warning: this report contains images some viewers may find distressing.

With the US election now just months away, civil unrest has continued in Wisconsin and Oregon and overnight in New York state following the release of bodycam footage of police restraining an unarmed black American in March.

Donald Trump is keen to stick to his aggressive stance on law and order – but he has lost control of the campaigning agenda after he was accused of saying that American soldiers who’d been captured or killed were “losers” and “suckers”?

It’s something the President strongly denies.
