New Report Claims That Trump Sent Rush-Delivered Condolences To Gold Star Families

By Aimee Lutkin

One thing a president does is reach out to the families of fallen soldiers. Donald Trump talks a lot about the troops and respecting America (especially if you are an NFL player who kneels during the National Anthem), but he was recently called out for his delay in calling the bereaved after several Green Berets were killed in Niger. What did he do in response? Falsely accuse President Obama of never calling the families of fallen soldiers, which is a blatant lie.

Since then, the situation has escalated. Trump loves taking a bad situation and making it worse. He then allegedly called the wife of US Army Sergeant La David T. Johnston, who was killed in Niger and told her that Johnston "knew what he signed up for." This statement was heard by U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson from Miami Gardens, who is standing by her story despite Trump's attempts to undermine her.
