Trump sends family $25000 after claim of broken promise

Dotard kept referring to slain soldier as 'your guy' to pregnant widow

During the call, the Post reported, Trump offered him $25,000 and said he would instruct his staff to establish an online fundraising page for the family.

Cpl. Baldridge was killed in June when an Afghan security officer opened fire on his American counterparts in an insider attack.

Mr Trump also went on Fox News Radio and said "to the best of my knowledge, I think I've called every family of somebody that's died, and it's the hardest call to make.As far as other representatives, I don't know, I mean you could ask General Kelly, did he get a call from Obama?"

She says Trump had spoken with Kelly "multiple times", but adds: "I'm not sure if he knew of that specific comment, but they have certainly spoken about it".

"I said, 'Me and my wife would rather our son died in trench warfare, ' " Baldridge said.

Wednesday afternoon ― after the Post story had appeared on the newspaper's website ― White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said the check was in the mail. "It's disgusting that the media is taking something that should be recognized as a generous and honest gesture, made privately by the President, and using it to advance the media's biased agenda", White House spokeswoman, Lindsay Walters said on a statement released on October 18, in the afternoon.

According to The Washington Post, it took former president Barack Obama 18 months to fulfil a similar promise to the family of Kayla Mueller, who was killed while being held captive by Islamic State in Syria in 2015.

"We were kind of joking about it", she said.

Joe Manchin , D-W.Va. "Either option leaves him unfit to serve as the head of the ONDCP", Manchin noted. And he has taken an adversarial posture against pharmaceutical companies on other issues.

A White House spokesperson, speaking on background, said the check has been "in the pipeline" since the President's conversation with the father. "But I was like, 'Damn, no check.' Just a letter saying 'I'm sorry'".

WRAL reached out to the White House for comment, but did not receive a response.

"I didn't say what that congresswoman said".

The clarification comes only a day after it was claimed that President Trump told the widow of a dead Green Beret soldier that her husband was well aware of the risks involved in the role.

The Trump administration has since said General Kelly is "disgusted" that dealing with military deaths has become "politicised". At least two never got a call or letter, and another family received no call.

Cowanda Jones-Johnson, the soldier's mother, told The Post earlier on Wednesday that Wilson's account of the conversation was accurate.

Mr Trump had suggested that he was rare among presidents in that he either wrote or spoke with relatives of service members killed in action.

Trump, asked by reporters about an earlier tweet saying he had "proof " of what he said, the president said: "let her (Wilson) make her statement again and you'll find out".
