The Lincoln Project on Friday hit back at President Donald Trump after an explosive Atlantic report claimed that he called American soldiers who died in World War I “losers.”

In a new one-minute video, the Lincoln Project goes through the history of American soldiers who were killed or captured in the line of duty, from World War II soldiers executed by Nazis, to troops serving in Vietnam who were tortured by the Viet Cong.

“They’ve been dragged from the burning remnants of downed helicopters and Humvees in Iraq,” the video states. “And they’ve fought to their last bullet in Afghanistan mountains.”

The video then cuts to a clip of Trump saying the late Sen. John McCain wasn’t a real war hero because he was captured by enemy forces.

“No Donald, you’re wrong,” the ad concludes. “They are heroes because they were captured.”

Watch the video below.

The latest bombshell book on the Trump administration reveals new details on the special counsel investigation into the president's relationship with Moscow.

"The team led by Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, failed to do everything it could to determine what happened in the 2016 election, shying away from steps like subpoenaing President Trump and scrutinizing his finances out of fear he would fire them, one of Mr. Mueller’s top lieutenants argued in the first insider account of the inquiry," The New York Times reported Monday.
