Trump doubled down on a lie concerning a very sacred issue. Not only did he lie about his contacting the families of slain service men and women, he also claimed past presidents didn’t do so and specifically named President Obama, whom he continually lies about in a very transparent and bigoted/racist attempt to erase from presidential history.
Trump does not care about the troops or any service member or any Gold Star Family, all Trump cares about is himself and ruining the accomplishments and legacy of President Obama, at any expense to the country.
What a worthless low life Trump is…
In the hours after President Donald Trump said on an Oct. 17 radio broadcast that he had contacted nearly every family that had lost a military servicemember this year, the White House was hustling to learn from the Pentagon the identities and contact information for those families, according to an internal Defense Department email.
The email exchange, which has not been previously reported, shows that senior White House aides were aware on the day the president made the statement that it was not accurate — but that they should try to make it accurate as soon as possible, given the gathering controversy.
Not only had the president not contacted virtually all the families of military personnel killed this year, the White House did not even have an up-to-date list of those who had been killed.
