Friday, October 20, 2017

White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly defended President Trump on Thursday, saying that Trump had “bravely” called families of four fallen American soldiers. Kelly’s appearance was an attempt to manage a growing controversy over Trump’s contacts with the families of slain service members. “Most Americans don’t know what happens when we lose one of our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines or Coast Guardsmen in combat,” he said.
