Chris Baldridge, the father of Army Cpl. Dillon Baldridge, told The Post that President Trump called him at home and offered him $25,000 out of his personal account a few weeks after his son and two fellow soldiers were killed in Afghanistan in June. He also directed his staff to establish an online fundraiser for the family, the father said. Neither happened.
The mother of Army Sgt. La David T. Johnson, who was killed in the Niger attack, stood by a Florida congresswoman’s account that President Trump said that Johnson “must have known what he signed up for.” Trump disputed that version of the conversation, saying it was “totally fabricated.”
President Trump, in his latest conflicting statement about a proposal to temporarily restore Affordable Care Act subsidies, warned lawmakers against “bailing out” insurance companies. Trump ended the payments last week.
Jeff Sessions told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he would not discuss his conversations with the president as he fielded questions on fired FBI director James B. Comey, Trump and the probe into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.
The cases are sure to be appealed, setting up yet another legal showdown on Trump's power when it comes to immigration policy.
