Former President Donald Trump dismissed speculation that he might introduce conscription for young US citizens.

A Tuesday report from the WashingtonPost detailed considerations by people close to Trump suggesting that more needs to be done to encourage the recruitment of soldiers. Trump interpreted the article as if he was considering the introduction of conscription and was sharply criticized for this.

“The Fake News Washington Post came up with the ridiculous idea that Donald J. Trump would institute the draft,” he said in a post on Truth Social. “This is just a continuation of their EIGHT YEAR long failed attempt to harm me with the voters. The story is completely untrue. In fact, I never came up with the idea.”

Trump then took action against the newspaper itself, targeting its declining readership.

“Only a degenerate former newspaper that has lost 50% of its readers would make up a story like this,” he added. “Just another fake story, one of many, invented by the DEAD Washington Compost!”
