The mother of August 26 Kabul suicide bombing victim Lance Corporal Kareem Nikoui invited former President Donald Trump to her son’s funeral on September 18 after blasting President Joe Biden in a tweet for his behavior at the transfer ceremony and for causing her son’s death.
“Thank you President Trump for your beautiful response to me. I would love if some how my President ( you Mr. Trump) could be present as I lay my Beautiful baby boy Lance Cpl. Kareem Nikoui to rest,” Shana Chappell wrote in a September 2 Facebook post.
“It would be such an honor to meet the real President of the United States of America, President Trump. I love you and America loves you,” she continued.
Trump responded to Chappell through his Save America PAC on Twitter, saying, “Thank you Shana – our Country loves you and especially loves your beautiful boy, Kareem.” He did not commit to being at the funeral, though.
In an earlier tweet aimed at Biden, Chapell said the blood of the 13 killed was on Biden’s hands and added, “If my president Trump was in his rightful seat then my son and the other Heros would still be alive!!!!”
