White House Scrambling After Documents Reveal Trump Lied About Contacting Gold Star Families
Documents reveal that Trump lied about contacting nearly every Gold Star family, and the White House was forced into scramble mode because they knew that Trump’s statement was not true.
Roll Call obtained the documents showing that the White House is scrambling to cover Trump’s lie, “The email exchange, which has not been previously reported, shows that senior White House aides were aware on the day the president made the statement that it was not accurate — but that they should try to make it accurate as soon as possible, given the gathering controversy. Not only had the president not contacted virtually all the families of military personnel killed this year, the White House did not even have an up-to-date list of those who had been killed. The exchange between the White House and the Defense secretary’s office occurred about 5 p.m. on Oct. 17. The White House asked the Pentagon for information about surviving family members of all servicemembers killed after Trump’s inauguration so that the president could be sure to contact all of them.”
