Biden slams Trump for alleged comments disparaging soldiers, war dead


US President Donald Trump returns a salute to Korean War veterans during a wreath-laying ceremony at the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington on June 20.

Democrats had been scheduled to hold their national convention last month in Milwaukee, Wisconsin's biggest city, but abandoned those plans in favor of a virtual convention for fear of spreading coronavirus infections if thousands of convention delegates jammed into a basketball arena, as had been scheduled. Trump on Friday called the report "a fake story".

"Look, I'm all for it, we have a big weekend, distance on the weekend, and all of that stuff", Trump said at the rally, held outdoors at the Arnold Palmer Regional Airport.

The results of the poll released last week show that of those answering the question definitively, 41 per cent of respondents said they meant to vote for Biden, while 37 per cent selected Trump. "It's filled with losers?" "Who the heck does he think he is?" Following the publication of the news report a day earlier, his political opponents lapped at him seeking an apology. "Our neighborhoods are being ripped apart by violence and lawlessness", Patrick J. Lynch, the head of the Police Benevolent Association, said in an endorsement of Trump.

"I like people who weren't captured", he said during an interview.

Snyder penned for USA Today on Thursday, blasting Trump as "a bully who lacks a moral compass" while praising Biden as someone who has "shown the desire to heal a deeply divided nation".

"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. "He didn't do a good job, but he wrote a book".

The Kenosha police union said Blake had the knife and refused orders to drop it. Blake fought with police, including putting one officer in a headlock, the union said. Almost all of Trump's plan was subsequently shelved after he won the White House.

Since 1964, all but one of the presidential candidates who secured Florida were also handed the ticket to the White House.

Clark County saw a drop in the number of people filing unemployment claims last week, continuing a trend of gradual economic recovery.

In response to the report, Trump vehemently denied the claims, but admitted that he was "never a big fan" of McCain.

"If what is written in The Atlantic is true, it is disgusting". That has been debunked, McEnany said.

"This has no basis in fact".

"So I disagreed with John McCain, but I still respected him".

Biden's trip to Wisconsin, which Trump narrowly flipped from Democrats in his improbable 2016 election victory, is a campaign call that also aims to help an embattled city "move forward" after days of violent and deadly unrest.

Recent polls in the state tipped Biden, but appear tight and both candidates are increasing their campaign dates there.

Pointing to Beau Biden's service in Iraq and as a civilian in Kosovo, Biden said his son "wasn't a sucker".

"To think that I would make statements negative to our military and fallen heroes when nobody has done what I've done", for the US armed forces, Trump told reporters.
