Gold Star Family Shares Recording Of Phone Call From President Trump

"At that moment when my world was upside down and me and my kids didn't know which way we were going, it felt like I was talking to just another regular human", De Alencar told the Post in an interview.

She paced up and down the stairs before finally going to the door of their home at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. He was an awesome man and an incredible husband and an fantastic soldier and I couldn't be more proud of my husband than I am right now, sir, to be honest with you.

"My husband was truly one of those people who would give you the shirt off of his back and he would look out for you before himself", De Alencar recalled in a phone interview with The Post.

"She was crying for the whole time", Wilson said of the new widow.

Melania Trump is being honored by the Kuwait-American Foundation at a dinner benefiting the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

"Natasha", Trump said in the call filmed by her childrenand in the video that De Alencar provided to CNN on Thursday night. What a frightful thing. "You know, all of the people that served with him are saying how incredible he was and just an unbelievable, awesome guy".

The video was recorded in April, but De Alencar just released it to the Washington Post. She has stacks of letters, scrapbooks and pictures.

She described herself as a Democrat who does not "do politics". Kelly said Trump expressed his condolences in that call "the best way that he could". She noted that her oldest son, Deshaun, is playing college football at Missouri Valley College in Marshall, Mo. on an academic scholarship.

The call lasted almost four minutes.

"Tell them their father was a great hero that I respected", Trump told the widow.

"All you got is memories and having the commander in chief call you for five minutes is an important memory", she said.

United Kingdom inflation rises to highest level in five years
Inflation rate climbs to 3%. 'Inflation rising potentially above the 3% level in coming months is something that we have anticipated.

De Alencar: You, too, sir.

"He is the most wonderful, humblest and very soft-spoken", she said.

"Stop the damn lying - you're the President".

"I just wanted him to not forget my son". We've been together 15 years, five children, run down real quick: 20, 17, 15, 12 and 4.

De Alencar declined to comment on the controversy surrounding Trump following the deaths of four U.S. soldiers in Niger this month.

For days, President Donald Trump has been antagonizing Democratic representative Frederica Wilson, for publicly revealing alleged insensitive comments he made to the grieving widow of a slain U.S. Army sergeant named La David Johnson.

To date, Donald Trump has still issued no official statement on the USA soldiers killed in Niger, either formally or on his Twitter page. "What is important to Gold Star families is to make sure that their loved one's service and legacy is remembered".

A White House official said later that Obama did not call Kelly but not respond to questions whether some other sort of outreach was made.

Since President Trump's comments, aides to former presidents have come forward saying that's simply not true: letters and calls to families are much needed sentiments that presidents have always taken upon themselves to do.

"Now it's getting thousands of times more coverage because it's about Trump". Wilson says she heard part of the conversation on speakerphone.

De Alencar said she has been overwhelmed by the "very uplifting" support from the community as well as the Army.
