Trump Says Obama Never Contacted Families of Fallen Soldiers

Trump Says Obama Never Contacted Families of Fallen Soldiers

The four Green Berets were killed on October 4 when a joint patrol consisting of U.S. and Nigerien forces was leaving a meeting with tribal leaders in trucks. It gets to a point where, you know, you make four or five of them in one day, it's a very, very tough day for me.

Trump also made a claim that previous presidents, including Barack Obama, didn't make calls to the families of soldiers who had died. Because I have done that traditionally'.

Trump's controversial accusation came from the Rose Garden of the White House, and he was standing alongside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

'I felt very, very badly about that. "I always feel badly".

In 2009, Obama called the family of Sgt. 1st Class Jared C. Monti, who was killed in June 2006 in Afghanistan helping fellow soldiers.

Q: Why haven't we heard anything from you about the soldiers that were killed in Niger? For me that's by far the toughest'.

Trump then uses this moment as a jump off for lying about his predecessor.

"If you look at President Obama and other presidents, majority didn't make calls - a lot of them didn't make calls - I like to make calls when it's appropriate", Trump said at a press conference in the Rose Garden when asked about why he had not addressed the recent deaths of American troops in Niger. A lot of them didn't make calls. Every time you think you can't go lower, I want to cry.

Lufthansa Signing Deal for Air Berlin
Air Berlin carried an average of 80,000 people a day, but endured losses of an estimated 782 million Euros a year ago . The budget Irish airline said it would take the €210m deal to European competition authorities.

"When American heroes make the ultimate sacrifice, Presidents pay their respects", she said in a prepared statement.

Those calls are expected in the near future.

If you don't actually know, then maybe STFU?

"And a lot of presidents don't, they write letters.I do a combination of both". "Most of them didn't make calls", he said of his predecessors.

Officials said the 12 man Green Beret-led team had just completed a meeting with local leaders and were walking back to their unarmored pick-up trucks when the unexpected ambush resulted in a firefight that lasted 30 minutes until French Mirage jets arrived overhead to fly low passes in an attempt to disperse the attackers. Those killed during the incident include Army Sgt.

CNN reported over the weekend that Trump was golfing while the remains of LaDavid Johnson, one of the four killed in the attack, was returned to Dover Air Force Base, a juxtaposition critics pounced on.

Mr Obama, unlike Mr Trump, was also never reported to have engaged in a public skirmish with Gold Star Families. I don't know. That's what I was told.

The record is plain that presidents reached out to families of the dead and to the wounded, often with their presence as well as by letter and phone.
