Trump to Mother of Slain Marine: ‘If I Were President, Your Son Would Be with You'
'I love you, and I love Kareem'
Donald Trump told the mother of fallen Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Kareem M. Nikoui that if he were president, her son would be with her now.
Trump endorsed Shana Chappel's post on Facebook attacking Joe Biden for her son's death.
“You are not the president of the United States of America Biden!!!!”
“Cheating isn’t winning!!! You are no leader of any kind!"
"You are a weak human being and a traitor!!!!"
She added that if Trump were president, her son would still be alive.
“If my president Trump were in his rightful seat, then my son and the other Heros (sic) would still be alive!!!!” she wrote.
“You will be seeing me again very soon!!!”
Trump highlighted Chappell’s Facebook post in a statement to reporters saying she was “100 percent correct.”
“If I were President, your wonderful and beautiful son Kareem would be with you now, and so would the sons and daughters of others, including all of those who died in the vicious Kabul airport attack,” he wrote.
Trump also noted that U.S. military equipment and civilians should have been evacuated from Afghanistan before service personnel.
“I love you, and I love Kareem,” he concluded.
Chapel accused Biden of rolling his eyes at her when she confronted him about her dead son:
"You then rolled your f***ing eyes in your head like you were annoyed with me, and I let you know that the only reason I was talking to you was out of respect for my son. …"
"You turned to walk away, and I let you know my son's blood was on your hands, and you threw your hand up behind you as you walked away from me like you were saying ‘ok whatever!’"
Later, Facebook-owned Instagram temporarily deleted Chapel's account.

She posted a tribute to her son on Instagram that received thousands of messages of condolence.
A Facebook spokesperson has since told The Daily Mail that it was deleted "incorrectly," but it won't say how the "mistake" came about.
It adds to the many cases of left-leaning Silicon Valley censoring conservative voices, even if the voice in question belongs to the grieving mother of a murdered American hero.
