Washington (eTruePolitics) –  In a surprising series of over 300 tweets Saturday morning president Donald Trump claimed that in January 1945 he led American troops against “overwhelming” German forces at The Battle of the Bulge.

“I never mentioned my service  because I don’t like to brag,” tweeted Trump who added that “debilitating” bone spurs that “really, really hurt,” didn’t stop  him from spearheading a furious American counter-attack in one of the bloodiest battles of World War II.

“I’m a hero,” added Trump, “and anyone who says different is a lying scumbag.

“I think Americans should be very proud that their president put his life on the line for OUR COUNTRY. I know I am. I even had to sleep outside,” added Trump.

“Fake News at its worst,” shrieked beleaguered White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany to reporters who said the president wasn’t even born in 1945. “Thanks to his great genes and vigorous workout schedule the president – and he might even get a little peeved at me for saying this – is much older than he looks.”
