Fallout from the October 4th ambush of U.S. service members in Niger made big headlines this week. On Monday, President Trump was questioned by journalists on why he hadn't responded to the deaths of four U.S. soldiers. On Tuesday, the comments he reportedly made during a phone call with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, who was killed in the attack, raised concerns. White House chief of staff John Kelly would later give an emotional response on Trump's behalf, while Sen. John McCain argued that the Trump administration wasn't being forthcoming about the attack.
Later in the week, a multi-state shooting rampage left three people dead and three others critically wounded. Radee Labeeb Prince is accused of fatally shooting three co-workers in Maryland before taking off to Delaware. The massive manhunt ended when the 37-year-old was taken into custody in Delaware.
