Trump criticised over meeting with parents of UK crash victim Oct 17, 2019 0 856 12345 AFPWashingtonThe parents of a British teen killed in a road crash involving a US diplomat’s wife feel their meeting with President Donald Trump was little more than a sloppy attempt at a photo op, their spokesman said Wednesday.Tim Dunn and Charlotte Charles were surprised to be invited Tuesday to the White House, where they met with Trump himself, learned that the diplomat’s wife was in the building -- and that Trump wanted them to meet with her in front of photographers.“It struck us that this meeting was hastily arranged by nincompoops on the run,” said the spokesman, Radd Seiger.The couple refused to meet the woman, Anne Sacoolas, feeling neither the time nor place were right.Harry Dunn, aged 19, died on August 27 in a head-on collision between his motorcycle and a car being driven on the wrong side of the road in Northamptonshire in central England.Sacoolas was interviewed by police about the deadly incident but flew back to the United States after claiming diplomatic immunity.She has not been charged with criminal wrongdoing, but her claim of immunity and return to the United States have provoked an uproar in Britain.Charles said that she and her husband do want to meet with Sacoolas -- but in Britain.“She needs to come back and face the justice system,” Charles said after the 15-minute meeting.
