Obama Welched on Donation


As President Barack Obama tried to console the parents of Kayla Mueller after she was killed in ISIScaptivity last year, they say he offered to make a contribution to a foundation they had established in her name.

But he has yet to do so, the parents say, 17 months after he made his promise to them on March 13, 2015.

ā€œIā€™m still waiting for that donation, Mr. President,ā€ Carl Mueller said in an ABC News interview broadcast this morning on Good Morning America, as part of an hour long investigation to be aired tonight on 20/20.

The White House acknowledges that he promised a donation and that he hasn’t done it after over a year. It’s pretty simple, he made an empty promise and welched on it. He might make good on it now, but only because he was called on it.
