White House Chief of Staff John Kelly called a special press conference yesterday and said he was “stunned” and “broken-hearted” after a condolence call President Trump made to the widow of a fallen soldier was turned into a political spectacle.
Kelly condemned Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-Florida) for listening to that phone call and then criticizing the president's tone in the press.
He said: “It stuns me that a member of Congress would have listened in on that conversation. I thought at least that was sacred.”
Kelly said Trump came to him to ask what to say to a woman whose husband was killed in Niger, in the line of duty. He told the President what General Joseph Dunford told him when his own son died in combat: That "he was doing exactly what he wanted to do … he knew what he was getting into." DAILY MAIL LINK
