President Donald Trump has denied a report in which he allegedly called the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) a "loser" and denigrated fallen U.S. troops. But his defense was quickly undone by one of his own tweets.

On Thursday, The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg, citing multiple anonymous sources, said Trump called McCain ― who was captured, imprisoned and tortured in Vietnam ― a "fucking loser," and denigrated American troops killed in action as "losers" and "suckers."

Trump rushed to deny the report, both to reporters covering his campaign event Thursday evening and on Twitter, where he said he had never called McCain a loser "and swear on whatever, or whoever, I was asked to swear on, that I never called our great fallen soldiers anything other than HEROES."
