An Iraq war veteran denounced President Donald Trump’s character after he reportedly slurred service members as “suckers” and “losers.”

Paul Rieckhoff, a veterans advocate and host of the Angry Americans podcast, told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that he doesn’t believe the president’s denials, which were couched in attacks on military leadership.

“This is who Donald Trump is,” Rieckhoff said. “He said only an animal would speak this way. He is an animal. He’s a disgusting human being. He has no integrity, he has no honor, he has no respect. He has no respect for anyone or anything. He’s a political runaway train who will smash into anything that’s in his way, to include our military. He’s attacking his own military leadership.”

“A week ago they were trying to cut the budget to the Stars and Stripes magazine, pardon war criminals, attacks John McCain,” he added. “Our enemies love this, our enemies are celebrating. Russia loves this, [Vladimir] Putin loves this. Nobody loves this more than our enemies, and every day he perpetuates this madness. It’s bad for America and good for enemies.”

Even if the vaccines currently in development work, "we don't have the details on the distribution," he added.

"There's going to be a lot of unknown questions," he continued. "We have to really take it in stages."

Emails obtained by The New York Times detail how Trump administration political appointees sought to silence the Centers for Disease Control during the coronavirus pandemic.

"On June 30, as the coronavirus was cresting toward its summer peak, Dr. Paul Alexander, a new science adviser at the Department of Health and Human Services, composed a scathing two-page critique of an interview given by a revered scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention," the newspaper reported. "Dr. Anne Schuchat, a 32-year veteran of the C.D.C. and its principal deputy director, had appealed to Americans to wear masks and warned, 'We have way too much virus across the country.' But Dr. Alexander, a part-time assistant professor of health research methods, appeared sure he understood the coronavirus better."

Trump's words prompted MSNBC's Ayman Mohyeldin to cut away from the briefing and issue a fact check.

"Obviously there's no evidence of that -- that is not true," Mohyeldin said.
