Holder fires back at Trump claiming Obama didn't call soldiers' families

Holder fires back at Trump claiming Obama didn't call soldiers' families

"I mean, you could ask Gen. Kelly did he get a call from Obama".

Alyssa Mastromonaco, a former senior aide to Obama, used even stronger language on Twitter, calling Trump's statement a lie - along with an expletive - and describing him as a "deranged animal".

In the latest installment of 'What Despicable Thing Did Donald Trump Say Today?', the president made the disgusting claim at a press conference on Monday that, unlike Barack Obama and other former presidents, Trump calls the family members of fallen USA soldiers to pay his respects.

Sen. John McCain on Tuesday said no one in President Donald Trump's administration has been forthcoming about the deaths of four USA soldiers in Niger earlier this month, The Hill reported.

"I think I've called every family of someone who's died", Trump said during an interview. "I don't know. That's what I was told", he said to reporters.

But I do know the memory of 1st Lt. Robert Michael Kelly doesn't deserve to be treated as a partisan prop by a draft-dodging amateur whose profound insecurities overrides any sense of moral judgment he has left. "He saw up-close just how -& how much - Obama cared for the fallen's families", Price tweeted Tuesday.

Trump Warns of Calm Before Storm
During the event honouring the Hispanic community for its contributions to the US, Trump said: "You teach our children". Tensions have also escalated between the USA and North Korea recently.

Trump's remarks Monday marked the first time he's commented at all - in person or on Twitter - about the Green Berets and United States support personnel who were slain around the October 4 raid.

- Eric Holder (@EricHolder) October 17, 2017Trump made the claim earlier in the day during a press conference in the White House Rose Garden. "Now, as far as other representatives, I don't know".

Trump said on Monday he'd written letters to the families of the slain American soldiers, and planned to phone them in the near future.

Obama's office did not respond to a request for comment. "I write letters and I also call", he contended, adding that he has called "virtually everybody" during his time in office.

"President Trump's claim is unequivocally wrong", the official said. "Also", Rhodes added, "Obama never attacked a Gold Star family". "Sometimes they call, sometimes they send a letter, other times they have the opportunity to meet family members in person".

From our perusal of news reports and news databases, we could not find any contemporaneous evidence that Obama spoke about such calls or that the White House announced he had called families. Trump's comments were misleading and inaccurate, and when he was pressed about them later in the news conference, he tried to backtrack. I am not speaking for other people. "I was told that he didn't often, and a lot of presidents don't. All I can do is ask my generals". A source familiar with that breakfast confirms not only that Gen. Kelly attended, but that he and his wife were listed as being seated at a table with the first lady at that event.
