Trump Just Went Golfing Instead of Attending Funeral of Green Beret Killed In Niger
The body of Sgt. La David Johnson is being laid to rest today. The funeral for the brave Green Beret who lost his life battling unknown militants in the deserts of Niger is being held today in Miami, Florida, however, there won’t be an important guest to attend the funeral.
Earlier this week, it was suggested that President Obama didn’t show proper respect for the troops during his time in the White House, but now President Trump will not be showing proper respect for the troops.

As usual, Trump won’t compromise his golfing for any important event, not even for Sgt. La David Johnson’s funeral. The 45th President of the United States didn’t even try to make up for his callous phone call to grieving widow Myeshia in which he told her that “he knew what he signed up for” and couldn’t even remember Johnson’s name.
President Trump continues to disrespect our fallen soldiers and demonstrate a general ability to show empathy for anybody other than himself. He doesn’t even care to call for an investigation into the mission that killed Sgt. Johnson and three other American soldiers since increasing number of reports indicate that a “massive intelligence failure” had taken place. The reports even suggested that the men were in dangerous territory without adequate support, and questions about whether Johnson had been left alive at the scene.
Even after wasting the entire week arguing with Rep. Frederica Wilson, who had overheard the President’s call to Mrs Johnson, Trump had a good chance to make things right on Saturday morning, nevertheless, he discarded it in order to satiate his own laziness.
