"I was pleased that his next tweet expressed his condolences to the Wade family"



On Saturday, Trump exploited the death of Nykea Aldridge, a mother of four and the cousin of Chicago Bulls star Dwyane Wade. Aldridge was shot and killed in crossfire on Friday as she pushed a baby in a stroller in Chicago.

In a boastful tweet, Trump claimed Aldridge’s death was an indication that African-Americans would vote for him:

Dwyane Wade's cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!


”Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace asked Conway the only reasonable question to ask: “Do you think it’s right to have that kind of political response to a personal tragedy?”

Conway didn’t even try to back up her boss on that one. Her response: “I was pleased that his next tweet expressed his condolences to the Wade family about the death of his cousin.”

5. Condolence tweet was his staff

 

As was the corrected spelling of Wade's name.

The first tweet was The Donald, himself.

2. Actually it wasn't his next tweet.

His first tweet with Dwyane Wade's name spelled incorrectly was made at 6:24 AM.

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/769526017887080449 (initial tweet - deleted)

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/769539271678013440

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/769552592158412800

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/769554782151331840

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/769571710924263424 (retweet - fixed spelling of name)

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/769592508879892480 (condolences tweet)

The tweet offering condolences was made FOUR HOURS AND TWENTY FOUR MINUTES after the initial tweet. There were three other tweets unrelated to the shooting of Nykea Aldridge before he bothered to feign empathy.

4. Trump only expressed condolences many hours after his handlers

and family members talked him into it.
