Gold Star Family Shares Recording Of Phone Call From President Trump

In Emotional Interview, Gold Star Parents Say Of Trump: 'It's Not About A Call Or A Letter'

They all loved him.

When Trump sent a condolence letter, "I opened it up and read it, and I was hoping to see a check in there, to be honest", the Post reported that Chris Baldridge said.

"I have no hard feelings toward anybody", she said. So thank you. I really, really appreciate it, I really do sir.

"At that moment when my world was upside down and me and my kids didn't know which way we were going, it felt like I was talking to just another regular human", De Alencar told the Post in an interview. And how good a football player is your son at Missouri?

Aaron Butler, a 27-year-old guardsman from Monticello, Utah, was killed August 16 at a booby-trapped building in Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan. He's a cornerback. He's been playing since he was five. "He's making me proud and he's making his father proud in heaven". And then he got a full academic scholarship when we were stationed in Hawaii.

Mark De Alencar, a member of the 7th Special Forces group, was fatally shot in Afghanistan just days after celebrating his 37th birthday. Kelly said Trump expressed his condolences in that call "the best way that he could". Of his predecessors, he said, "Most of them didn't make calls".

During an interview with Fox News Radio earlier this week, President Donald Trump claimed he'd contacted "virtually" every family that lost a military service member since taking office. I like to learn and it's awesome what kind of guy he was.

"Tell them their father was a great hero that I respected", Trump told the widow. There was no reason for Trump to go so far off course in his remarks, other than his own lack of self-discipline, which leads him to embarrassment time and again, typically after he has been boasting about himself. Time is the key. Neither did Trump after he took office that month.

Four days later, on April 12, De Alencar was with the casualty officer when his phone rang.

Stevens noted how his players' thoughts are on Hayward . A guy who can put the ball in the basket for you. And it appears Hayward's season is over.

"I know that you, you wrote a letter to the White House, I think".

"He is the most unbelievable, humblest and very soft-spoken", she said.

Mark and Natasha De Alencar got married in 2008 after 15 years together.

De Alencar told CNN that she is a Democrat who does not "do politics", and that Trump appeared to understand her loss.

When asked by Miami station WPLG if she indeed heard Trump say that she answered: "Yeah, he said that".

The White House has declined to comment, calling the conversation private.

On Monday, a CNN reporter questioned why Trump had not yet said anything about four soldiers who were killed in an ambush in Niger on October 4.

Though Trump blasted Wilson's account as "totally fabricated", the soldier's mother confirmed to The Washington Post that the congresswoman's account was accurate, adding that Trump had "disrespected" her family. Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson bashed Trump on multiple news outlets for allegedly telling Myeshia Johnson that her husband, Army Sgt. La David Johnson - that her husband "knew what he signed up for".
