Former White House photographer Pete Souza on Monday rejected President Trump's claim that former President Barack Obama "didn't often" call the family members of soldiers killed in action.

"The traditional way if you look at President Obama and other presidents, most of them didn't make calls. A lot of them didn't make calls," Trump told a gaggle of reporters in the Rose Garden Monday.

In response, Souza posted a picture of the former president and first lady Michelle Obama meeting the parents of a fallen soldier. He added that Obama awarded 52 Medal of Honor awards during his presidency.

"I also photographed him meeting with hundreds of wounded soldiers, and family members of those killed in action," Souza explained.

Obama's former deputy chief of staff for operations Alyssa Mastromonaco also rejected Trump's claim by tweeting, "that's a fucking lie."

Souza is a frequent critic of Trump who uses pictures from his former position to speak out against the new administration.
