Soldier's widow reveals 'hero' call with Trump

Trump: "You just come over and see me, because you are just the kind of family - this is what we want".

Since Trump made the incendiary claim, which included a false smear against his predecessors (he claimed "a lot of them didn't make calls", comparing himself favorably to former president Barack Obama), reporters found multiple Gold Star families who received no recognition or personal condolences from Trump. The attack itself took place on October 4, and the president did not offer any public comment on it for more than a week.

The New York Times also noted that Obama had a long record of meeting with families of killed service members, and regularly traveled to Dover Air Force Base in DE to greet the caskets of fallen troops.

It was after this meeting, NBC notes, that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reportedly called Trump a " fucking moron ". However, Trump took to Twitter Wednesday and denied the allegations, saying it's "pure fiction, made up to demean".

"I have called, I believe, everybody - but certainly I'll use the word virtually everybody", Trump said in a Fox News Radio interview.

Later in the call, Trump invited De Alencar to the White House, telling her, "If you're around Washington, you come over and see me in the Oval Office", before asking about her oldest son, Deshaun, who is playing college football at Missouri Valley College in Marshall, Mo.

The phone call ended with Trump repeating his invitation to the White House and advising De Alencar to take care of herself. Dillon Baldridge, who was killed in Afghanistan on June 10. But she said Trump was totally sympathetic to the widow, and is "appalling" that WIlson "has politicized this issue, and the way she is trying to make this about something that it isn't".

Aaron Butler, a 27-year-old guardsman from Monticello, Utah, was killed August 16 at a booby-trapped building in Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan.

"I felt a tad bit better". In the midst of defending his comments about Obama, Trump asserted that the former president did not call Kelly to offer condolences after his son, Robert Michael Kelly, was killed.

They paid "the ultimate sacrifice like my husband did", she said. Kimball lives in Fort Benning, Georgia, and her son grew up in Cleveland, Texas.
