                    <p>President Donald Trump said on Friday that he would not cut funding to Stars and Stripes, the military's independent newspaper, following news the Pentagon was planning to shutter the publication.</p>

<p>“The United States of America will NOT be cutting funding to @starsandstripes magazine under my watch. It will continue to be a wonderful source of information to our Great Military!” Trump <a href="https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1301968873487564802" target="_blank">tweeted on Friday afternoon</a>.</p>

<p>The Pentagon ordered Stars and Stripes to close on September 30 and dissolve by January's end, after cutting $15.5 million in funding to the newspaper.</p>

<p>A bipartisan group of senators sent a letter to Defense Secretary Mark Esper asking the Pentagon to reinstate the funding to keep Stars and Stripes afloat.</p>

<p>“We urge you to take steps to preserve the funding prerogatives of Congress before allowing any such disruption to take place,” the senators' <a href="https://www.feinstein.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/press-releases?id=BF992283-C688-4F96-9107-A63181F64E1B" target="_blank">letter read</a>. “Stars and Stripes is an essential part of our nation’s freedom of the press that serves the very population charged with defending that freedom.”</p>

<p>The tweet from Trump comes as The Atlantic reports that the president denigrated fallen service members as 'suckers' and 'losers.' The president has denied he ever made those comments.</p>
