Trump Inaccurately Claims Obama Didn't Call Families Of Troops KIA”

But ABC News in the USA reports General Kelly and his wife attended a breakfast for Gold Star families at the White House in 2011 and sat at first lady Michelle Obama's table.

President Donald Trump had such an unusually long press conference in the Rose Garden that he was called out by a reporter for this statement, in which he claimed that President Barack Obama did not call the families of fallen soldiers when Obama was president. "I remember he did on occasion make calls and met gold star families at the White House and on his base visits", said Benjamin Rhodes, a national security aide to Obama.

Pressed on that statement later, he said of Mr Obama: "I was told that he didn't often, and a lot of presidents don't".

When challenged on that baseless claim - Trump backtracked and blamed "the generals" for giving him bad information. "President Obama engaged families of the fallen and wounded warriors throughout his presidency through calls, letters, visits to Section 60 at Arlington, visits to Walter Reed, visits to Dover, and regular meetings with Gold Star Families at the White House and across the country", the official told NBC News.

First Lieutenant Robert Kelly died in action while serving with the Marines in Afghanistan in 2010.

Hamas and Fatah sign unity deal
The Fatah official stressed that President Mahmoud Abbas instructed the delegation not to return without a reconciliation deal. Sticking points include control over the arsenal of Hamas' armed wing and the fate of thousands of Hamas public servants.

McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, told The Hill he has been "waiting for weeks and weeks" for information related to the ambush that took the lives of four Green Berets in the African country October 4.

Until Monday, the president had said nothing publicly about their deaths.

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.

"I don't know if he did".

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.

That prompted further rebuttal from staff of previous administrations.

"I like, when I can, the combination of a call and also a letter", he said.

Her fury was echoed by Gold Star families and the staffers of former presidents, who accused President Trump of blatantly lying.

"I will, at some point during the period of time, call the parents and the families - because I have done that, traditionally", he added.

George W. Bush also wrote letters to families of troops killed in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which began during his tenure. I am not speaking for other people.

"Her son was on life support, and from what I gathered and could tell, that his prognosis - that it was unlikely he would survive. All I can do is ask my generals". "I can tell you, my policy is I have called every one of them". Kelly also has not responded to a direct request from comment from CNN.
