(JustPatriots.com)- The mother of Kareem Nikoui, one of the 13 American servicemen who were murdered in the terror attack outside of Kabul’s international airport, has formally invited former President Donald Trump to attend his funeral.
Shana Chappell, a California Gold Star mom, took to Facebook to invite the former president to the funeral, saying that it would be “such an honor” if he could attend.
The suicide bombing occurred at the Abbey Gate of Hamid Karzai International Airport on August 26, and the military personnel who were killed in it were working to ensure the safe passage of stranded Americans into the airport so that they could board flights and get home safely.
Families of victims of the attack, and many military families in general, have come out against President Joe Biden’s horrific handling of the withdrawal after he failed to give key allies sufficient warning, and he ordered military personnel to leave the country before all Americans had been safely evacuated first.
In her Facebook post, Chappell said that she would love if “my president (you Mr. Trump) could be present” at the event, as she lays her son to rest.
She added that it would be an honor to “meet the real President of the United States of America,” revealing just how widespread the concern about election fraud in last year’s presidential election is.
Trump responded to the invite in a statement issued by his Save America PAC on Labor day, thanking her and reminding her that the country loves her and her “beautiful boy, Kareem.”
The former president did not, however, confirm whether or not he plans to attend the event.
In all likelihood, Trump may consider attending the funeral without making a public announcement, as doing so would make the event a media storm and potentially a target for left-wing extremists who want to hurt the former president or people he is associated with.
The funeral will take place on September 18.
