Jennifer Griffin, an American Journalist who is presently working as a national security correspondent with Fox News. Recently, there has been a huge buzz regarding the alleged remarks of Donald Trump while he has been denigrating the American Soldiers, and thus, he talked about the journalist. Certainly, Trump’s insulting attitude towards the American soldiers, calling them as “losers” and “suckers.” In a story published by the Atlantic Magazine, it described how Trump said that he had cancelled a visit to pay respect at an American military cemetery in Paris back in the year 2018 as he thought them to be ‘losers.’ In this context, Jennifer Griffin had confirmed in a Twitter thread about such a comment coming up from none other than Donald Trump. It had questioned why would someone want to grow up aspiring to be a soldier.
Jennifer Griffin’s defence in Cauvto’s show
However, Jennifer Griffin didn’t sit idle, and she had fired back at the President Donald Trump post the incident where he had questioned her reporting. The Fox News reporter called into Neil Cauvto’s show on this Saturday defending herself. Griffin further told Neil, “I can tell you that my sources are unimpeachable.” She even added on to it saying, “I feel very confident in what we have reported at Fox.” On a recent tweet, she had even announced that people of the US had been reluctant to speak against the President. She added on to her speech saying that she did what was morally right. She quoted, “I’m a reporter and it was my job to report what I heard.”
Certainly, Trump’s addressing of the dead American World War I troops in France as losers and suckers were not something that could be expected from him. At present, we can witness that Jennifer Griffin received tweeted support from different colleagues in Journalism for her track record and sources. On the contrary, there have been supporters in the Trump’s team lining right behind him. However, Trump took this opportunity to disparage John Kelly as that anonymous source, who has been his former employee, a retired four star general who wasn’t able to handle the pressure of his own job.
Griffin’s report from pro-Trump Fox News touched the hearts!
Griffin’s report had touched nerves of the people. However, Trump has recently tweeted, “Jennifer Griffin should be fired for this kind of reporting. Never even called us for comment. Fox News is gone!” The White House didn’t move to deny the report and they seem to be fearful about the impact of the scandal on military supporting conservatives. Even Donald Trump dismissed this comment by tagging it as a politically motivated “hoax.”
Jennifer Griffins said, in one of her statements, “This former official heard the President say about American veterans: “What’s in it for them? They don’t make any money.” Source: “It was a character flaw of the President. He could not understand why someone would die for their country, not worth it.” This comment from Trump has saddened a lot of families, particularly the ones from the soldiers’ background. Whatsoever, we look forward to see whether Trump apologizes for having said so!
