Biden slams Trump over alleged comments mocking US war dead
WASHINGTON Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has declared President Donald Trump unfit for the presidency, delivering an impassioned reaction to a report that Trump who never served in uniform allegedly mocked American war dead. It could have been a guy like John Kelly, Trump told reporters, saying his former top aide was unable to handle the pressure of this job." As he spoke, Biden grew angry, raising his voice to rebut Trumps alleged comments that Marines who died in battle were suckers for getting killed. Returning to Washington from a Thursday visit to Pennsylvania, Trump told reporters that the Atlantic report was a disgraceful situation by a terrible magazine.I would be willing to swear on anything that I never said that about our fallen heroes, Trump told the reporters, gathered on the tarmac in the dark. His allies quickly seized on the reported comments in hopes they could drive a wedge between military families and veterans and Trump.
