President Trump has just told one of his most heartless lies since taking office. The President was speaking about tax reforms when he went off on a tangent about his devotion for personally calling the families of soldiers who were killed in action.
Why haven’t you mentioned the fallen heroes in Niger?
Dead soldiers are hard and also Obama didn’t call.

His response was nothing more than a long-winded litany of excuses that clearly indicates Trump has not yet spoken with the families of the four soldiers who were killed in a militant ambush in the African nation of Niger last week. Trump then attempted to pass the blame to President Obama (#ObamasFault) and every other former President of the United States.
President Obama’s former deputy chief of staff, Alyssa Mastromonaco, was having none of Trump’s sorry excuse for a fake news answer.
that's a fucking lie. to say president obama (or past presidents) didn't call the family members of soldiers KIA – he's a deranged animal.

President Obama not only responded to the families of fallen soldiers, he was widely known for writing deeply personal hand-written letters to grieving spouses, parents, and children.
None of this really comes as a surprise as Donald Trump continues to use the military to prop up his own obviously fake patriotism while regularly taking jabs at war heroes such as Senator John McCain.
