Donald Trump's niece Mary Trump has become the latest to slam the president for a report that said he allegedly mocked American veterans as "losers" and "suckers". In a tweet, Ms Trump shared a picture of her father, Mr Trump's brother, who served in the National Guard.
This comes after Captain Chelsey "Sully" Sullenberger posted a series of tweets calling Mr Trump "disgusting" for allegedly speaking against war heroes. Mr Sullenberger, who is known for saving 155 passengers on a commercial flight by landing the plane on the Hudson River, spoke about how both he and his father served for the US.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden also reacted negatively to The Atlantic's report, saying he believed the report to be true and thought Mr Trump was "unfit" for the presidency.
Mr Biden told reporters on Friday that Mr Trump’s comments, if true, are “deplorable”. The Trump administration has dismissed the report as false.
Following the report, a Fox News reporter independently confirmed key points from The Atlantic's report. Mr Trump slammed the reporter and called for them to be fired.
But Mr Trump found support among Osama bin Laden's niece on Saturday, after she gave her first public interview. Noor bin Ladin told the New York Post that she believed another 9/11-inspired attack could happen if Mr Biden were to win in November. Mr Trump, in her opinion, would be the only one to prevent that type of attack.
