Despite promising the parents of Islamic State hostage victim Kayla Mueller he would donate to a foundation set up in her name, President Obama still has not contributed to the group – 17 months later.
ABC News first reported on the president’s unfulfilled pledge, as Kayla’s father Carl Mueller told the network about the president’s commitment that day.
“He says I will help that foundation. He says you won’t know, it’ll be an anonymous donation, but I will,” Carl Mueller recalled, describing the meeting with the president as he consoled the grieving family in March 2015.
Mueller said, “I’m still waiting for that donation, Mr. President.”
