The mother of 20-year-old Lance Corporal Rylee McCollum one of 12 US Marines killed in a suicide attack by Taliban terrorists in Kabul, Afghanistan, has invited President Donald J. Trump to attend her son’s funeral. Shana Chappell, the outspoken Gold Star mom who ripped into Biden for repeatedly checking his watch while the bodies of her son and 12 other US military members were being wheeled off the plane from Afghanistan.
“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,” Chappell wrote on her Facebook page.
It is not yet clear if President Trump plans to attend her son’s funeral, but he did share a copy of Chappell’s recent statement regarding our “pseudo president” with his millions of supporters. In her statement, the grieving gold star mom expressed her gratitude for President Trump and his leadership and encouraged him to run again in 2024, saying, ” I will always fight for the Trump administration just as my son did.”
Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America
Thank you, Kathy. America feels your loss and fully understands your pain. Rylee will never be forgotten.
Message from Kathy McCollum, Mother of Lance Cpl. Rylee McCollum, USMC:
“Thank you. Just want the family to know I support them. We need the corrupt pseudo president gone. President Trump has to run. My son should not be gone. President Trump would never allowed this to happen. We need him back in office to save this country. Just like he said years ago on Oprah. He would run when our country needed him. We need him.
I can’t live with knowing my son’s life was taken for nothing. So Biden could repay his debt to China. They will now have full control of Afghanistan and my son will be a sacrificial lamb. My son was murdered for Biden optics. I will become more vocal soon. Grieving and not sure I can control my mouth. But watched Biden disrespect my son while I was standing across from him and he was checking his watch, and then Pelosi denying my son recognition and turning her back. Just as she tore up Donald’s speech.
We cannot give up our country. So even if no one gets back with me. I will always fight for the Trump administration just as my son did.”
