Audio of a Gold Star widow’s conversation with President Donald Trump, who called to offer his condolences for the loss of her husband, was released on Friday.

After her husband, a staff sergeant in the U.S. Army, was killed while serving in Afghanistan, President Trump called her to offer his deepest sympathies, The Washington Post reports:

“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.

“‘I am so sorry to hear about the whole situation. What a horrible thing, except that he’s an unbelievable hero,’ Trump told her in the call about her husband Army Staff Sgt. Mark R. De Alencar, which The Washington Post released.”

….

“Days before, two Army men told her that her husband, Army Staff Sgt. Mark R. De Alencar, had been killed in Afghanistan on April 8.”

On Friday, The Washington Post posted the video below.
