White House inexplicably scrapped sympathy declaration to families of 4 fallen US troops

We can stop blaming Donald Trump’s personnel for him creating a burgeoning controversy over his rejection to properly honor to piece together unanswered questions surrounding the deadly ISIS raid in Niger that stunned military leaders, we’re gradually learning more about Trump’s unusual and insensitive response to the fallen soldiers.Traditionally, presidents reveal public grief in the wake of an occasion like that, in addition to reach out to the families of fallen. However Trump did neither and the central question remains, why? Why did he abandon a crucial duty of any leader in chief?Some observers have recommended possibly Trump’s staff let him down. “I suspect some staff

members did not get letters [about Niger] to the president as quickly as possible,” said Leon Panetta, previous chief of personnel under Expense Clinton.We now understand White Home staffers immediately prepared a statement of compassion for Trump to provide, but that the statement was shelved and never ever utilized. That sort of declaration represents the popular technique for any administration when soldiers are unexpectedly eliminated in action.”Staffers at the National Security Council drafted and flowed a declaration of condolence for President

Donald Trump to make nearly right away after a deadly ambush of U.S. soldiers in Niger earlier this month,”Politico reports.And the declaration was precisely what you ‘d expect a president to say in the wake of the news: Melania and I are heartbroken at the news that 3 U.S. service

members were eliminated in Niger on October 4 while providing guidance and help to Nigerien security force counter-terror

operations. We use our deepest condolences to the households and good friends of these brave American soldiers and patriots.But the declaration was neglected and never ever provided. Instead, Trump opted to callously and actively disregard the news of the fallen troops. Rather, he went almost 2 whole weeks before calling the families of the dead.

Rather, he went golfing five times. And rather, he refused to even tweet out a basic message of condolence.And then when he did< a href = > belatedly contact liked ones, he deeply insulted a family by recommending among the dead Green Berets”knew exactly what he was signing up for”when he entered the military. Trump likewise appeared to unknown the name of the solider, Sgt. La David Johnson, while he was speaking to his widow, Myeshia Johnson.This is all on Trump. No one should blame the staff.
