On Sunday, Congressman Jim Banks weighed in on The Atlantic magazine’s ‘hit piece’ that attempted to attack President Trump’s perceived strong relationship with the United States military.
According to the magazine’s report, which has since been debunked, President Trump cancelled a planned 2018 trip to a cemetery in France for American marines who died in World War I because of disdain for the slain soldiers who are buried there. The article also cites “anonymous sources,” alleging that Trump called the deceased soldiers “losers” and “suckers.”
As far as Rep. Banks is concerned, one should look no further than the actions that President Trump has taken to benefit the U.S. military and veterans versus former President Obama when deciding whether or not The Atlantic’s story carries any weight.
Banks, who serves in the U.S. Navy Reserve as a Supply Corps officer, compared former President Obama’s treatment of the the military to that of President Trump, which the media is clearly downplaying.
“Barack Obama despised our military and loathed it’s leadership,” Banks said.”Donald Trump rebuilt our military, prioritized the care of our veterans and adopted Reagan’s ‘Peace thru Strength’ mantra in a way that would make the Gipper proud. Actions speak louder than anonymous sources.” Video Below
