Gold Star Widow Releases POTUS Trump Call: “Tell Your Children I Said Their Father Was A Great Hero” (Video)
Amid the drama between the White House and Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL), Gold Star widow Natasha De Alenca released an emotional call she had with President Trump in April about the death of her husband killed in Afghanistan.
Daily Caller published a partial transcript of the call:
“I am so sorry to hear about the whole situation. What a horrible thing, except that he’s an unbelievable hero,” Trump told her in the call about her husband Army Staff Sgt. Mark R. De Alencar, which The Washington Post released.
“Thank you. I really, really appreciated it,” she said. “I really do, sir.”
“If you’re around Washington, you come over and see me in the Oval Office,” he said. “You just come over and see me because you are just the kind of family … this is what we want.”
“Say hello to your children, and tell them your father he was a great hero that I respected,” Trump said. “Just tell them I said your father was a great hero.”
“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,” Natasha told the Washington Post in a phone interview.
Release of the call comes after Gen. Kelly confirmed former President Obama did not call him after his son was killed in Afghanistan.
‘I can tell you that President Obama, who was my commander-in-chief when I was on active duty, did not call my family, that was not a criticism, that was just to simply say that I don’t believe President Obama called. That’s not a negative thing,’ Kelly said during Thursday’s press briefing.
