Opinion: The President cannot comprehend true patriotism

President Donald Trump may admire the military, but he has shown his contempt for the people who decide to join it and serve the nation — a decision he seems to find utterly incomprehensible. Americans have heard him disparage war heroes for years, from the late Sen. John McCain to the families of soldiers killed in battle. Americans who sacrifice everything for their country are not heroes in his view, but “losers” and “suckers,” according to a new article in The Atlantic, which quotes multiple unnamed sources, including at least one retired four-star general. Trump has vehemently denied the report, but other news organizations separately corroborated some of the claims in the piece.
