Donald Trump is acting like a real president, unlike Joe Biden. The former president has reportedly reached out to the families of the service members killed in the Kabul suicide bombing.
Thanks to Joe Biden‘s poor planning and subsequent botched withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, thirteen U.S. service members were killed in an attack on the Hamid Karzai Airport in Kabul.
On September 8th, an advisor revealed that Trump had been making phone calls to the grieving families of these fallen heroes.
The former president is also reportedly planning to attend the funeral of one of the Marines, which will be taking place in Manhattan. He was invited to the memorial service of Kareem Nikoui by the Marine’s mother, Shana Chappell, who extended the invitation after what she said was a disappointing meeting with Joe Biden.
Chappell wrote on Facebook that “it would be such an honor” if Trump would attend.
Donald Trump has responded to Chappell’s invitation, but has not confirmed publicly whether he would attend the service on September 18th.
“Civilians should have been brought out first, along with our $85 billion of equipment, with the military coming out very safely after all was clear. I love you and I love Kareem,” Trump commented in response to Chappell’s post.
While Trump is acting like a real president, Joe Biden is facing significant backlash from the American people, especially families of fallen soldiers. Anger over his actions in Afghanistan is widespread, and the image of Biden checking his watch during the transfer ceremony at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware is making things much worse.
Many of the family members of the thirteen fallen soldiers have argued that their children would still be alive today if the Biden administration hadn’t handled the withdrawal so poorly.
