Wounded Iraq veteran Bobby Henline has told the Democrats not to use his image in their Presidential campaign and says he ‘does not believe’ that Trump called dead soldiers ‘suckers’ and ‘losers’ as claimed by them.
Biden and the Democrats have accused the current President of calling service people names after a trip to a battlefield grave in Belgium in 2018.
President Trump has vehemently denied the claims saying it is a ‘terrible thing to say.’
Let's help this veteran out! #Retweet.
"I don't know what @realDonaldTrump said, but I am sure he didn't call me a loser. I didn't hear him call me a loser, so this has got to stop. Stop using my image. @FoxNews call me, somebody."

And now the Democrats have caused outrage with Mr Henline by using his image as propaganda in a bid to get backing from veterans and current servicemen and women.
“I’m just so irritated that they put my image up there because now it looks like the president called me a loser.” Bobby Henline said.
“And they’re using that to sell something that they believe in for their agenda. It’s not fair to put us [veterans] as props in the middle of all that.”
Henline was wounded by an IED on his 4th tour of Iraq in April 2007 after it drove over it.
He was the only survivor out a group of five as his four friends and comrades perished.
Mr Henline’s image was then used by the Biden campaign and plastered all over the internet.
‘It’s not fair to put us [veterans] as props in the middle of all that’ Henline said.
“I really believe the president didn’t say this,” Henline said. “There’s been anonymous sources and other sources in the room that aren’t necessarily friends with the president or believe in his ways, but they’re still not gonna slam him and make up this rumor and keep it spreading. And so with that said, I don’t think he really said this.”
Although many doubt the veracity of the story, Henline believes it was successful in its intent to turn veterans against the president.
“Them taking that well-recognized photo and using it for their agenda and changing veterans’ minds, thinking the president talks to them like that is ridiculous,” Henline said.
“And I believe it worked. And that’s why I want to get it taken down because it shouldn’t be working. People need to hear the truth. That’s my image. And it should not be up there speaking for me.”
