The parents of a British teenager fatally injured in an accident involving the wife of a U.S. envoy said Thursday that President Donald Trump offered them a check when they visited the White House last month.

Harry Dunn, 19, was on his motorcycle in late August when he collided with a  car driven by Anne Sacoolas, who has apologized. Sacoolas, wife of envoy Jonathan Sacoolas, was reportedly driving on the wrong side of the road when the accident occurred. She soon returned to the U.S. and claimed diplomatic immunity.

Dunn’s parents, Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn, met with Trump in the White House in October. The visit ended with Trump telling the Dunns that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin was “standing by ready to write a check,” family spokesman Radd Seiger told PA Media.

Trump also sprang on the Dunns that Sacoolas was waiting in a nearby room, and he encouraged the parents to meet with her. They angrily refused — and turned down the check.

The money is “not going to bring Harry back,” said Charles (see the video above). “We’re very aware of that, obviously. Justice has to be done. They all need to learn that this can’t happen again, and they need to learn that things need to be put into place to stop this.”

Charles said she’s determined that Sacoolas return to Britain to face the consequences. “It is frustrating,” she said. “They must see there’s something not right. Why are they making it difficult?”

Seiger said that when Trump told them during the White House visit ”‘We’ve got the driver here,’ he basically meant we’re all going to have a big hug and a kiss and I’ll get my Treasury guy to write a check … the more I think about those words, the more shocking it is.”

The day after the White House meeting, Trump told reporters that driving in Europe is “very tough if you’re from the U.S.”

Because of problems with summoning emergency care, Dunn lay mortally injured after the accident for close to an hour. When his father was finally alerted about the accident, he rushed to the scene to find his son conscious and in pain. “Harry, it’s your dad,” he told him. “They’re gonna fix you.” Harry Dunn died after he was rushed to a hospital.

Harry Dunn’s father tells @GayleKing he was able to get to the accident scene and see his son for the last time.

  1. I get they’re pissed and something needs to be done. I’ve believe that there should be some changes to diplomatic immunity all around due to such cases as this one. In all actuality there should probably be a complete overhaul of the system. It seems to be abused on a regular basis
