The parents of a U. S. Military specialist killed in Syria in-may said Thursday they hadnât obtained any acknowledgment from President Trump, despite his claim to have known as âvirtuallyâ all families of fallen Oughout. S. soldiers.
But theyâre not really looking for a call.
Sheila and Calvin Murphy are the parents of Spc. Etienne Murphy. In an emotional job interview on CNNâs âNew Dayâ on Thurs, Sheila said through her holes âitâs OKâ that she hasnât noticed from Trump, because âitâs not about a call or letter.â
âI just want people to remember my son and all the other Gold Star moms, Mrs. Johnson â all those who are grieving,â Andrea Murphy said. âTrust me, none of us want to be in this position, and the worst thing I ever have been called is a gold star mom.â
Trumpâs communication using the families of slain troops has been below scrutiny since Tuesday, when he or she falsely accused his recent precursors of not calling such households. The claim was an attempt to defend their own lack of public statements about 4 soldiers killed in Niger this particular month.
The president sparked a lot more controversy this week by publicly feuding with Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., who said Trump told the Myeshia Johnson â? the widow of Sgt. La David Manley â? that her husband âknew what he signed up for.â Sgt. Johnson was one of the troops killed in Niger.
Murphy, via what she called âun-get-throughableâ discomfort, said she wrote a notice to the White House in hopes that will Trump would ânot forgetâ Etienne.
âI have no hard feelings toward anybody,â she said.
âBecause itâs not about me; itâs about my child and all the other countless fallen heroes, and those still over there now and the families that are here grieving, like I am and my husband is,â she additional. âThatâs what itâs all about. I donât want it to be about me or about a letter; I want it to be about my child and what he stood for, and what they are fighting for over there right now as I speak.â
