President Donald Trump stuck his foot in his mouth multiple times recently while communicating with grieving with military families. He told one woman that her deceased husband knew what he was getting himself into when he signed up, which is an incredibly insensitive thing to say to a grieving widow.
He also blatantly lied.
Trump claimed to have called all grieving families of soldiers who had died while he has been in office. Trump said he has, “called every family of somebody that’s died, and it’s the hardest call to make.” According to the Washington Post, twenty soldiers have passed since he’s been President. They interviewed thirteen of those families and found that just half of those thirteen had received phone calls from Donald Trump.
So he claimed to have called twenty people, but in reality, he’s only talked to about six.
One of the fathers of those forgotten gold star families wants to speak out.
