A mother whose Marine son died during Joe Biden’s pullout of Afghanistan invited Donald Trump to her son’s funeral, instead of Joe Biden.

Marine Kareem Nikoui was one of 13 U.S. service members who lost their lives from an ISIS-K suicide bomb attack in Kabul during Joe Biden’s disastrous bugout of Afghanistan.

The Marine’s mother, Shana Chappell, took to her Facebook page to invite former President Donald Trump to her son’s funeral, the New York Post reported.

Th grieving mother wrote, “I would love if some how [sic] my President ( you Mr. Trump) could be present as i [sic] lay my Beautiful baby boy Lance Cpl. Kareem Nikoui to rest.”

“It would be such an honor to meet the real President of the United States of America, President Trump,” she added. “I love you and America loves you.”

Trump did respond by private email, saying, “Thank you Shana. Our Country loves you and especially loves your beautiful boy, Kareem.”

Still, Trump did not say if he intended to attend the September 18 funeral.

The Marine’s parents have blamed President Biden for their son’s death. The day after the attack, Kareem’s father, Steve Nikoui, said that Biden had “turned his back” on the Marine.

“They sent my son over there as a paper pusher and then had the Taliban outside providing security,” Nikoui added.

For her part, Chappell slammed Biden on Facebook: ” know my face is etched into your brain! I was able to look you straight in the eyes yesterday and have words with you.

“After i [sic] lay my son to rest you will be seeing me again! Remember i am the one who stood 5 inches from your face and was letting you know i would never get to hug my son again, hear his laugh and then you tried to interrupt me and give me your own sob story and i had to tell you ‘that this isn’t about you so don’t make it about you!!!’ You then said you just wanted me to know that you know how i feel and i let you know that you don’t know how i feel and you do not have the right to tell me you know how i feel!”

She also called Biden “a weak human being and a traitor” who “turned your back on my son, on all of our Heroes!!! … MY SONS [sic] BLOOD IS ON YOUR HANDS!!! All 13 of them, their blood is on your hands!!!”

Trump also responded to the Facebook post, saying she was, “100 [percent] correct. If I were President, your wonderful and beautiful son Kareem would be with you now, and so would the sons and daughters of others, including all of those who died in the vicious Kabul airport attack.

“Civilians should have been brought out first, along with our $85 billion of equipment, with the Military coming out very safely after all was clear,” Trump added. “I love you, and I love Kareem.”

Naturally, Facebook then disabled Chappell’s account. The social media giant later reinstated it saying that the shut off was an accident.
