Former President Trump this Wednesday gave a message to a grieving Gold Star mom who shared an account of getting disrespected by President Biden after his management of the Afghanistan withdrawal got her son killed last week.
Shana Chappell made the news this week after she went to Facebook to describe a meeting with Biden during the dignified transfer at Dover Air Force Base over the weekend.
Her son, Marine Lance Cpl. Kareem Mae’Lee Grant Nikoui, died at the airport within the city of Kabul by an alleged unnamed suicide bomber, along with 12 other American military service members after President Biden’s decision to put people in harm’s way.
“President Joe Biden … This message is for you!” Chappell said via Facebook. “Remember i am the one who stood 5 inches away from you and let you know i would never hug my son again. You then interrupted me and gave me your sob story and i said “this is not about you so don’t make it about you!!!”
“You then rolled your f—ing eyes like you were annoyed.”
“I told you again how you took my son away and i will never hug him again… You turned away and i told you my sons blood was on your hands and you threw your hands up like you were saying ‘ok whatever!!!’”
Trump, using his his Save America PAC, gave a response to Chappell this Wednesday.
The former president gave her love and told her he knew her anger.
President Donald J. Trump:
"Shana, you are 100% correct. If I were President, your wonderful and beautiful son Kareem would be with you now, and so would the sons and daughters of others, including all of those who died in the vicious Kabul airport attack… pic.twitter.com/yq3Dx0tH9k

“Shana, you are 100% right. If I were your President, your beautiful son Kareem would still be there with you now, and so would all the other sons and daughters of other people, including all the people who died in the terrible Kabul attack,” Trump said.
“Civilians should have been gotten out first, along with our $85 billion in equipment, with the Military getting out very safely after everything was clear. I love you, and I love your son Kareem.”
There are numerous accounts from grieving Gold Star families that Joe Biden was disrespectful when he met with them. He reportedly spoke about his late son Beau, who died from brain cancer back in 2015, while trying to converse with them. He was also trying to look at his watch while the 13 fallen heroes returned home:

Without real leadership in the White House, these families were all left with the hardships of losing children and then seeing nation’s ineffectual commander-in-chief wipe his hands of any responsibility for their demise. But Biden’s responsibility cannot be forgotten.
