Donald Trump’s phone call to a Gold Star widow has been the subject of controversy.
What did he say to her?
Now one Gold Star widow is making a secret recording public that Trump didn’t want anyone to know existed.
The media has fanned the flames of anti-Trump hatred by falsely claiming he was disrespectful to Myeshia Johnson – the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, who was one of four U.S. soldiers killed in an ambush in Niger.
They are using the episode to smear Trump as being insensitive towards Gold Star families and as someone less than human who lacks empathy and decency.
But this anti-Trump media lie collapsed when Natasha De Alencar – another Gold Star widow –released the recording of her phone call with the President.
In the recording, you can see that Trump could not have been more sympathetic to her loss and did everything in his power to ease her grief.
The Washington Post reports:
“And now she was about to speak to the president.
Surrounded by her children in the living room, De Alencar picked up the phone and turned on the speakerphone.
After she had waited on hold for 15 or so minutes, Trump’s voice echoed out of the phone’s tiny speaker, while one of De Alencar’s daughters filmed the conversation.
Trump opened by saying how sorry he is about the “whole situation,” before adding that De Alencar’s husband was “an unbelievable hero.”
“At that moment when my world was upside down and me and my kids didn’t know which way we were going, it felt like I was talking to just another regular human,” De Alencar said.
Later in the call, Trump invited De Alencar to the White House, telling her, “If you’re around Washington, you come over and see me in the Oval Office,” before asking about her oldest son, Deshaun, who is playing college football at Missouri Valley College in Marshall, Mo.
De Alencar told Trump that her son had received a scholarship, and Trump asked whether it was an academic or sports scholarship. (It was an academic scholarship.)
The conversation then shifted to De Alencar’s four other children. Trump asked her to say hello to them for him and to “tell them their father was a great hero that I respected.”

The phone call ended with Trump repeating his invitation to the White House and advising De Alencar to take care of herself. In total, the conversation lasted just under four minutes.
“It was a moment of niceness that we needed because we were going through hell,” De Alencar said.”
It’s shameful that the anti-Trump media would stoop so low as to exploit a Gold Star widow’s grief to smear Trump, but they long ago sacrificed their sense of decency and fairness so they could crusade to have Trump removed from office.
