Gold star widow Natasha De Alencar released the audio of a phone conversation she had with President Donald Trump in April about the death of her husband who was killed in Afghanistan.
â€œI am so sorry to hear about the whole situation. What a horrible thing, except that heâ€™s an unbelievable hero,â€ Trump told her in the call about her husband Army Staff Sgt. Mark R. De Alencar, which The Washington Post released.
â€œThank you. I really, really appreciated it,â€ she said. â€œI really do, sir.â€
