Trump denies calling American war dead ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’

Washington Correspondent

President Trump has angrily denied a report that he described American soldiers who had been captured or killed in combat as “losers” and “suckers”, describing the claims in the Atlantic magazine as “a fake story”.

Amid a growing outcry over the allegations, the Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden said it showed Mr Trump was “not fit to be commander in chief”.
