Editor-in-chief of The Atlantic Jeffrey Goldberg has been accused of lifting President Trump’s “losers” quote from the ending of the movie Godfather II.
Goldberg claimed, citing four anonymous sources, that Trump had referred to Americans who died in battle as “losers” and “suckers,” but the veracity of this was challenged by numerous people, including former White House national security adviser John Bolton.
The Biden campaign has exploited the allegation to undermine Trump’s support amongst veterans.
However, a Twitter user who goes by the name ‘ghost of Daniel parker’ has sensationally claimed that Goldberg, who has a history of being deeply interested in the mafia and Godfather, lifted the quote from a Godfather II scene.

The Atlantic journalist who penned a smear piece claiming President Trump secretly disparaged fallen U.S. troops as “losers” and “suckers” is also the same individual other reporters have dubbed the “chief salesman” of the neocons’ Iraq War.
On Thursday, Jeffrey Goldberg wrote that several “anonymous sources” told him that Trump canceled a visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery near Paris in 2018 because he believed it was “filled with losers.”
The hit piece was rebuked by several current and former Trump administration officials present at that event, including former National Security Adviser John Bolton, who is no fan of Trump.
