Trump accuses Obama of never calling families of fallen soldiers

He said it's possible that Obama "did sometimes" but "other presidents did not call".

Trump also admitted during the press conference that he had not yet been in touch with the families of four fallen Green Berets killed in Niger on October 4.

Immediately following Donald Trump's Rose Garden press conference where the president claimed former President Barack Obama never spoke with the families of fallen soldiers, MSNBC host Katy Tur called the president out. "But in addition, I actually wrote letters individually to the soldiers we're talking about, and they're going to be going out either today or tomorrow". "I always feel badly".

"The toughest calls I have to make are the calls where this happens - soldiers are killed". "Troops dying in service to America is a tragedy, and the families of the fallen deserve the comforting words of the Commander in Chief".

"I completely reject the idea that that was slow", Mattis said.

'Other presidents did not call, they'd write letters and some presidents didn't do anything.

Alyssa Mastromonaco, a former aide to President Obama, called the claim "a fucking lie" on Twitter.

The failure to anticipate an attack and the fact there were no USA rescue and recover assets close by meant almost an hour went by before the evacuation of the two wounded and three dead U.S. troops by French Super Puma helicopters could be completed.

Aarushi's parents, Rajesh and Nupur, were convicted by a special Central Bureau of Investigation ( CBI) court in 2013. They have assured us that they would visit jail to attend to inmates every 15 days", said jail doctor Sunil Tyagi.

Former President George W. Bush also spent hundreds of hours meeting with families of fallen troops.

But Trump opponents have expressed frustration with his silence on this issue, where there is no political hay to be made.

"I don't know if he did".

After his recent trip to Puerto Rico, for example, the president bragged, "I guess it's one of the few times anybody has done this". The White House countered at the time, saying that the president personally signs every letter. The White House press secretary said previously the administration was still reviewing the circumstances around the mission.

President Trump called the phone calls "a very hard thing". It gets to a point where, you know, you make four or five of them in one day, it's a very, very tough day.

"Donald Trump uses troops when he thinks he can benefit - like during his fake outrage over the National Football League protests".

The brother of one of the men killed said on Monday that hearing from Trump was not high on his list of priorities. La David Johnson, Staff Sgt. Bryan Black, Staff Sgt. Dustin Wright, and Staff Sgt. Jeremiah Johnson. It's not known if the President ever planned to attend the return of remains ceremony at Dover as he has in the past.

The former president has publicly described the heart-wrenching task of writing letters to the families.
