Donald Trump has said the suspect in the death of crash victim Harry Dunn will not return to the UK, the teenager’s parents have said.
Anne Sacoolas, 42, returned to the United States days after the crash which killed 19-year-old Harry.
The president revealed Mrs Sacoolas was also at the White House, but Harry’s parents declined to meet her.
Family spokesman Radd Seiger said they felt “a little ambushed” by Mr Trump’s offer.
The president said she was in the room next door to Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn but they refused to see her, saying the conditions were not right.
Mr Trump was sympathetic but did not agree to Mrs Sacoolas’ UK return, Harry’s parents said.
Mr Seiger described the White House meeting as “absolutely extraordinary” and “unprecedented”.
Harry died near RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire on 27 August when his motorcycle was in a crash with a Volvo.
Mrs Sacoolas – who is reportedly married to a US intelligence official who was stationed at RAF Croughton – was interviewed by police but then returned to the United States after claiming diplomatic immunity.
