Donald Trump was today branded as & # 39; foolish and offensive & # 39; by the robbed family of a British teenager who was murdered by the wife of an American diplomat after a & # 39; inciting & # 39; made comments that defended her for driving on the wrong side of the road.
Charlotte Graham, whose son Harry Dunn was hit and killed by Anne Sacoolas outside an American spy base in Britain, is & # 39; disgusting & # 39; of the American president who said that British roads are confusing for Americans and said: & # 39; it happens & # 39 ;.
And IAt an amazing moment, photography was also taken last night with a briefing marked as & # 39; secret & # 39; and written by the US National Security Council, which said: & # 39; Tthe spouse of the US government employee does not return to the UK & # 39 ;.
In response to the slip, Harry & # 39; s mother said: & # 39; I saw it (the note) – we are just disgusting & # 39; and in a message for Mr. Trump, she added: "He must know exactly where she is. I would urge him to return her to the UK on a plane to face our legal system, face us and talk to us.
Radd Seiger, the spokesperson for the Dunn family, also said to MailOnline today: & Trump's comments are an attempt to justify what Anne Sacoolas did. They are insensitive, clumsy, idiotic and offensive. We are shocked by his words and this has only hurt the Dunn family more.
& # 39; Trump has just ignited the situation. He caused more pain and made things worse. His choice of words is terrible & # 39 ;.
Harry & # 39; s mother revealed that the family receives thousands of messages from supporters around the world, many from America, who with & # 39; disbelief & # 39; respond to the US decision to protect Sacoolas and hide it.
Charlotte Graham, whose son Harry Dunn died six weeks ago, says she & # 39; is disgusted & # 39; that Trump will not hand over the alleged murderer Anne Sacoolas, who hit him with her car on the wrong side of the road

Mr Trump's bombshell briefing reveals that the US has already told Britain that it will not be sent back to the UK to face justice
Harry, 19, was killed in a car accident in Northamptonshire, allegedly caused by the wife of the diplomat
Last night in Washington, Mr. Trump acknowledged that there was & # 39; a tragedy & # 39; and described suspect Anne Sacoolas – whom he did not mention – as driving on the wrong side of the road & # 39 ;.
He then suggested that he had done the same in the UK, where he has two golf courses.
& # 39; Those are the opposite roads. That can happen, & said Trump. & # 39; I won't say it ever happened to me, but it did. When you get used to driving on our system and you are suddenly on the other system, where you drive, it happens. You must be careful. & # 39;
But Mr. Trump also said last night that he would arrange a meeting between the family of a victim of a teenage accident and the wife of the American diplomat who was the driver.
The US president admitted that there was "huge anger" about Harry Dunn's death and urged the families to meet "so that there could be some cure."
Mr Trump described the death of the 19-year-old as a "terrible accident" and said that Anne Sacoolas, 42, was on the wrong side of the road when she hit him. But he did not commit to renouncing her diplomatic immunity, or bringing her back to the UK for further interrogation by the police. In the White House, the president said, "We're going to talk to the diplomat's wife … and see what we can come up with so that there can be some cure."
He emphasized that he hates & # 39; this case & # 39; and admitted that it was a very, very complex issue because we are talking about diplomatic immunity.
The family of Harry Dunn (left with blond hair, his mother Charlotte Charles and right his father Mr. Dunn) said that a meeting with Foreign Minister Dominic Raab about the death of their son felt like a & # 39; publicity stunt & # 39; – because they confirmed that they started civil action against the suspect in the case
Donald Trump was publicly asked about the death of Harry Dunn and the suspicion that he was murdered by the wife of an American spy and tackled it for the first time and called it & # 39; a very complex issue & # 39 ;. He said he wanted the woman and the relatives to meet for & # 39; some healing & # 39;
His intervention caused even more anger.
A Downing Street spokesperson has revealed talks between the Prime Minister (pictured earlier this week) and Mr. Trump have taken place on the Harry Dunn case
The President's intervention comes after Harry & # 39; s family spoke about their & # 39; disappointment and anger & # 39; after a meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs. Harry & # 39; s parents were left in tears after 45 minutes of talking to Dominic Raab about insisting on Mrs. Sacoolas' return.
Charlotte Charles, Harry's mother, was visibly sad when she told how she felt they had been abandoned by calling the meeting something more than & # 39; a publicity stunt & # 39 ;.
She and Harry & # 39; s father, Tim Dunn, said their hopes were awakened by the prospect of an audience with the Foreign Minister.
But they said that Mr. Raab told them that Mrs. Sacoolas has diplomatic immunity and that it is very unlikely that the US will ever give a waiver so that she can return to the UK to be interrogated.
At a press conference in Westminster after the meeting, Mrs. Charles said: "I don't really understand why we were invited to see Dominic Raab. We are no further than where we were last week.
"Part of me feels like it was just a publicity stunt on the part of the British government to show that they are trying to help."

Why are Americans at RAF Croughton in the UK?
RAF Croughton is an air force base currently rented by the US government.
It houses the 422th Air Base Group, but is also used by spies who work for the Joint Intelligence Operations Center Europe (JIOCEUR).
JIOCEUR is a military intelligence analysis center that is part of the Defense Intelligence Agency. The agency is an external government branch that provides information to & # 39; war hunters, defense policy makers, and troop planners in the Ministry of Defense and the Intelligence Community & # 39 ;.
The RAF Croughton entrance is displayed. Sacoolas left the base when she turned on the wrong side of the road on August 27
It provides intelligence information for the American European and African commands as well as NATO.
The center is located in RAF Molesworth in Cambridgeshire, but after the 2015 announcement that it would close in 2023, many of the positions were relocated to Croughton.
There are plans to consolidate it with the US Africa command to create a larger station in Croughton that will be known as the Joint Intelligence Analysis Complex – a major US intelligence gathering center.
According to the locals in Croughton, the communication center – where the husband of Sacoolas would work – is a & # 39; site within the & # 39; which has its own separate protection.
The US government is reconsidering the move after encountering resistance from lawmakers who said it would be too expensive.

Boris Johnson urged Mr Trump last night to intervene to ensure that Mrs. Sacoolas, who was in a collision with Harry in an SUV, stands for justice.
The prime minister spoke with the president last night to ask him & # 39; to reconsider the position of the US & # 39 ;, said a downing street spokesperson.
The parents said they felt they now had no choice but to take their own legal action. They have instructed Geoffrey Robertson QC and human rights lawyer Mark Stephens to start their fight and start a civil case against Mrs. Sacoolas in America.
Mrs. Charles, 44, said: "We will still continue. There is still fire in our belly to continue. & # 39;
She was torn and described the & # 39; nausea & # 39; that she feels & wakes up every morning and realizes that you have lost your boy & # 39 ;.
Harry & # 39; s father said he felt "extremely disappointed" by the government, and added, "I'm so disappointed. He was a beautiful boy. & # 39;
Harry was on his way to his father's house in Brackley, Northamptonshire, when he was involved in a collision with Mrs. Sacoolas's car on August 27.
The diplomat's wife had reportedly withdrawn from RAF Croughton, an American intelligence center in Great Britain, on the wrong side of the road and bumped into the teen's motorbike at the top of a hill. Harry suffered terrible injuries and died in the hospital later that night.

Mrs. Sacoolas, whose husband works at the base according to the intelligence service, initially worked with the police.
But Northamptonshire Police were later told that she and her family had left the country and that they quoted diplomatic immunity. Requests for permission from the American embassy have so far been denied. Lawyer Radd Seiger, who represents the family, said the Foreign Ministry tried yesterday to prevent him from attending the London meeting.
Only when the Dunns said they would not go further without him, he was admitted.
He said that when Mr. Raab spoke to the US government, they simply repeated: & # 39; No. You can't have her back. It is protected by immunity. & # 39;
The lawyer said they would now bring their fight to Washington and invited Mr. Trump to meet them.
Raab said, "We will continue to put pressure on the US authorities for their cooperation to ensure that the police can continue this case unhindered and give Harry & # 39; s family the opportunity to get justice."
