“Donald Trump’s Gold Star controversies get even more embarrassing”


SALON

“President Donald Trump’s Gold Star family controversies continued to roil his presidency.

One controversy involves Chris Baldridge, the father of Army Sgt. Dillon Baldridge, whose son was killed in Afghanistan in June. During a phone call several weeks later, Baldridge claimed that Trump offered him $25,000 and said his staff would set up an online fundraiser but failed to do either of those things, according to The Washington Post. The check was subsequently sent out on Wednesday, the same day as the Post reported the story.” MORE
