President Donald Trump on Wednesday put his own spin on a thwarted effort to introduce the parents of 19-year-old British motorcyclist Harry Dunn, Tim Dunn and and Charlotte Charles, to Anne Sacoolas, the diplomat’s wife who is accused of hitting and killing their son.


Graeme Demianyk, senior editor at HuffPost UK, described the situation as “a mess,” which by all accounts, is the case; Last Wednesday, Trump defended Sacoolas at a press conference, describing the situation as a “terrible accident” and saying drivers have to “be careful” when driving on “opposite roads.”

Donald Trump says Boris Johnson asked for grieving British parents to meet suspect in son's death at the White House. Family refused as felt as if it was an "ambush". What a mess https://t.co/CyVfFlDns2
