Twitter Rejects Trump's Claim That Obama Didn't Call Families Of Fallen Soldiers

By Aimee Lutkin

During a conference in the Rose Garden on Monday, Donald Trump was asked a question about four members of the U.S. Special Forces who died during an ambush in Niger almost two weeks ago. Trump had not yet made a statement about their deaths, nor contacted their families, as far as anyone knew. In response, Trump threw a pretty wild accusation in the direction of President Obama.

“If you look at President Obama and other presidents, most of them didn’t make calls. A lot of them didn’t make calls. I like to call when it’s appropriate, when I think I am able to do it,” he said.

This allegation seems to be just another one of Trumps infamous "talking before really thinking" comments that have absolutely no credibility. You can tell based on the reaction of his team around him they were about to deal with yet another Trump PR disaster. It didn't take long, however, for people to start calling out the ridiculousness of the comment.
