Although neither Biden or Trump personally served in the military the issue of respect for the military dominated a large chunk of the 2020 presidential campaign. The issue stemmed largely from comments that Trump had reportedly made that many felt were disrespectful to the millitary. In reporting from The Atlantic, Trump said that those who died in the military were “losers” and “suckers.”
The Biden campaign used those comments to suggest that Trump didn’t have the respect for military service that was necessary to serve as commander in chief. It was just one of many issues that were raised over the course of a long and brutal campaign, and it’s unclear if any one issue, including the coronavirus pandemic, proved to be decisive in Trump’s ultimate defeat in November. Still, his comments about the military probably didn’t help him.
