NBC News reported Tuesday that the White House said President Obama did not call General John Kelly after his son was killed in Afghanistan in 2010.
"JUST IN: President Obama did not call Gen. John Kelly when his son was killed in Afghanistan in 2010, White House official tells NBC News," tweeted Tuesday.
1st Lt. Robert Michael Kelly was killed by an IED in Afghanistan at age 29.
Trump said Monday that Obama and Bush didn't "often" call the families of fallen soldiers.
After his claim was called into question, Trump said Tuesday morning that reporters should "ask General Kelly" whether or not he got a call from Obama.
ABC News defended Obama on Tuesday, saying he invited Kelly to breakfast six months later:
Kelly and his wife attended a breakfast for Gold Star families at the White House in 2011 and sat at first lady Michelle Obama's table, a person familiar with the breakfast told ABC News.If you're going to send young men off to fight and die in foreign wars the least you could do is give their families a call to thank them for their sacrifice.
