Trump sends family $25000 after claim of broken promise

Trump sends family $25000 after claim of broken promise

Chris Baldridge, the father of Army Cpl.

Knowledge of Trump's pledge to Baldridge comes amid the ongoing flap about how presidents handle condolence calls to families of those killed in action and Trump's feud with a Democratic congresswoman over his call with the widow of Sgt.

Stung by criticism of the way he's handled the deaths of US soldiers in Niger, the president claimed earlier this week that he makes more calls to the families of soldiers who are killed in action than previous presidents have made.

He then received a letter from the president, but no cheque.

A White House official told The Washington Post a check was in the mail to the family of Army Cpl. President Donald Trump is claiming his predecessors did not sufficiently honor the nations fallen.

He boasts: "I think I've called every family of someone who's died".

The Post notes that President Barack Obama took 18 months to send an undisclosed amount of money promised to the family of Kayla Mueller, who died in 2015 while she was held captive by the Islamic State in Syria. "I did not say what she said". "It's disgusting that the media is taking something that should be recognized as a generous and honest gesture, made privately by the President, and using it to advance the media's biased agenda", White House spokeswoman, Lindsay Walters said on a statement released on October 18, in the afternoon.

"There is a substantial process that can involve multiple agencies anytime the president interacts with the public, especially when transmitting personal funds", a White House official told ABC News.

A White House spokeswoman says Chief of Staff John Kelly is "disgusted" that dealing with military deaths has become "politicized".

Confederation College faculty on strike in Thunder Bay, northwestern Ontario
Advanced Education Minister Deb Matthews said she hopes the dispute is settled soon. The site will be updated regularly throughout the strike.

His accusation that most presidents did not call families of military personnel is provoking a heated response. "He could have just said, "I'm sorry for your loss" and 'We really appreciate your service and your sacrifice, have a nice day'".

"The President has personally followed up several times to ensure that the cheque was being sent".

Trump still insists the congresswoman was lying, though he has specifically responded to the families who've made similar claims just yet. She said she overheard Trump's words.

Rep. Frederica Wilson told the media Trump made the comments Tuesday as Johnson's body was being returned to his pregnant wife and two kids. La David Johnson, who was killed earlier this month in Niger.

Cowanda Jones-Johnson, the soldier's mother, told The Post earlier on Wednesday that Wilson's account of the conversation was accurate.

"If you look at President Obama and other presidents - a lot of them didn't make calls".

"President Trump did disrespect my son and my daughter and also me and my husband", Ms Jones-Johnson said.

Like other presidents, Donald Trump has made personal contact with some families of the fallen and not all.
