Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Trump is strongly denying reporting in the Atlantic that said the president allegedly made disparaging comments against fallen soldiers, especially since I think that anybody help military ABC News White House correspondent Karen Travers is with us, Karen This is an unusually vehement denial fromthe White House, isn't it?
