The widow of a Fallen Soldier has released a recording of her call with President Trump — and she says he did a great job as consoler-in-chief.
“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,” Natasha De Alencar told the Washington Post.
De Alencar’s husband, Army Staff Sgt. Mark De Alencar, was killed in a firefight in Afghanistan on April 8, and Trump made the call four days later.
In the footage of the four-minute call, recorded by one of their four kids, Trump says he’s sorry about “whole situation” and calls her husband “an unbelievable hero.”
He later invites her to the White House next time she is in DC.
“It was a moment of niceness that we needed because we were going through hell,” De Alencar told The Post.
The family spoke out amidst controversy over Trump’s handling of the calls to Gold Star families.
The president had ripped on his predecessors for not making the calls — which is not true — but came under fire himself for telling one widow that her husband knew “what he signed up for.”
