Gold Star Family Receives Promised Check From President Trump


A gold star family received a promised $25,000 check from President Donald Trump Monday.

Trump reportedly promised the Baldridge family the $25,000 in a phone call in June after their son, Army Cpl. Dillon Baldridge, was killed in Afghanistan that month. The family was hurting for money and did not receive anything from the government after their son’s death.

Chris Baldridge, Cpl.Dillon Baldridge’s father, told The Washington Post Wednesday they had not yet received the check, causing backfire from the media. But new reports from an ABC reporter show the family has now received their check.
