The president reportedly called Afghanistan a “loser war,” and told his military leaders: “You’re all losers… You don’t know how to win anymore… I want to win… We don’t win any wars anymore… We spend $7 trillion, everybody else got the oil and we’re not winning anymore.” It’s reported that Trump was so angry at this point that he wasn’t breathing properly.
In his most incendiary comment, Trump—a man who, remember, managed to get out of military duty in Vietnam due to a supposed bone-spur problem—is said to have told the assembled forces: ‘I wouldn’t go to war with you people… You’re a bunch of dopes and babies.’
The comment reportedly left the room dumbfounded. Tillerson was ‘visibly seething,’ and decided to speak up. The secretary of state said: “No, that’s just wrong… Mr. President, you’re totally wrong. None of that is true.’ When the meeting ended soon afterward, Tillerson reportedly stood with a small group of confidants and said: ‘He’s a (expletive deleted) moron.’”
