Trump makes false claim that former presidents didn't call families of slain troops

Trump claimed other presidents did not call families of slain troopsPresident Trump defended his slow public response to the deaths of four U.S. soldiers in Niger this month by claiming that most of his predecessors never called the families of service members killed in action.

“If you look at President Obama, and other presidents, most of them didn’t make calls, a lot of them didn’t make calls," Trump said Monday. "I like to call when it's appropriate, when I think I am able to do it."

It was Trump's first public statement about the Niger incident, in which an Army special forces unit was ambushed by Islamic extremists in the western African nation. And it brought an swift and strong reaction from aides to former President Barack Obama.

"That's a (expletive) lie," said Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama's deputy chief of staff, on Twitter, calling Trump "a deranged animal."
