Another key witness has denied “The Atlantic” story claiming President Trump disparaged fallen soldiers.
Speaking to Breitbart News, Former Deputy White House Chief of Staff Zach Fuentes unequivocally denied the report.
According to Breitbart “Fuentes personally briefed President Trump on the weather situation that led to the trip being canceled. He is also a close personal confidante of former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.”
Fuentes told Breitbart “You can put me on record denying that I spoke with The Atlantic.”
“I don’t know who the sources are. I did not hear POTUS call anyone losers when I told him about the weather. Honestly, do you think General Kelly would have stood by and let ANYONE call fallen Marines losers?” he added
Fuentes believes the Atlantic’s sources may be second hand accounts and “are unlikely first hand accounts.”
He speculated “They are conflating those people from something the day after.”
