Trump denied making those comments.

Wilson lashed out at Trump for being cold-hearted and insensitive to Myeshia Johnson on the call, accusing him of not even knowing the name of her husband. "I don't believe all presidents call. I don't know", Trump said. "They also made regular visits to Walter Reed and Bethesda Medical Center, going in the evenings and on Saturdays".

Amid the uproar over President Trump's remarks about his predecessors not calling the families of fallen service members, Jill Stephenson revealed that she, too, never got that personal call from Obama when her son, U.S. Army Ranger Benjamin Kopp, died in 2009, Independent Journal Review reported.

Veterans groups said they had no quarrel with how presidents have recognized the fallen or their families. The Regans also received a flag from the Bush administration in remembrance of Jimmy.

Jared was killed in 2006 in Nuristan Province, Afghanistan, while trying to repeatedly rescue his wounded comrade under enemy fire.

That's what the president tried to say to four families the other day". In the last week or so, Gold Star families have been brought into this larger fray. "You could ask General Kelly, did he get a call from Obama?" She thought that was a attractive word to hear about her boy, "lovely".

Obama assured her that her son would not be embarrassed, as he held and comforted her. And despite corroboration from the mother of the late Sgt.

Patrick enlisted in the National Guard just after 9/11, choosing the Guard because of its domestic focus, according to McCaffrey.

"Trust me, none of us want to be in (this) position", she said. "And if I could have given my life for him, I would have done it without hesitation - not a moment - but I feel like he was sort of betrayed being a Guard".

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. He left a "really nice" phone message with his cell phone number in case she needed anything, she said.

Army Sgt. Dillon Baldridge, 22, and two of his fellow soldiers were killed by an Afghan police officer June 10. She said the typed letter was not personalized, referred to her as only Mrs. Smith, and seemed to be signed with a machine-generated signature. "But I believe they all write". She did not say whether that contact necessarily meant a phone call, or only a letter, and she did not not address the specifics of why families of some war dead have received neither. Ted Kennedy, Gov. Mitt Romney and members of the Department of Defense.
