Parents of Teenager Killed by U.S. Diplomat's Wife Say Trump Offered to Have Treasury Write Check

While meeting with President Donald Trump, the parents of a British teenager who was killed in a traffic collision with the wife of a U.S. diplomat were offered money from the Treasury by the president, which they refused, according to The Guardian.

Harry Dunn, 19, was riding his motorcycle near the Royal Air Force base in Northamptonshire, England when he was involved in an accident with Anne Sacoolas. Dunn died of his injuries in the hospital while Sacoolas claimed diplomatic immunity and left the United Kingdom. Trump invited Dunn's parents, Tim Dunn and Charlotte Charles, to the White House to discuss the case.

Toward the end of the meeting, Trump intimated that he had Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin "standing by ready to write a check."

"It was almost as if he let it slip out," said family spokesman Radd Seiger. "When he said, 'We've got the driver here', he basically meant we're all going to have a big hug and a kiss and I'll get my Treasury guy to write a check. That's how it was. On the day it just didn't register with me, but the more I think about those words, the more shocking it is."

Charles told The Sun money would not bring her son back.

"Justice has to be done," she said. "They all need to learn that this can't happen again and they need to learn that things need to be put into place to stop this."

3. The noncompassion with these people in the WH and administration

is sickening.

Also, isn't it illegal to use taxpayer's money for such issues?

intending to deliver. He just wanted his reality TV photo op.

7. So this shit proposed to use our taxpayer money to pay off the parents?

Credit to the parents for saying no. But I have to wonder how many payoffs has Spanky made that we don't know about?

19. This is true. I wonder how much of that, Putin and his

oligarchs are also getting? What a fucking nightmare? It's going to take decades to unravel the mess they have made in 3 years.

16. as long as it's other people's money, like taxpayers, Trump will write a check right away.

but if he needs to pay with his money you'll never see a dime.
