Harry Dunn, 19, was killed in August when his motorcycle collided with a vehicle allegedly driven by Sacoolas outside a British air force base in southern England used by the USA military.

"So we went round in circles for a few minutes after that", Charles added.

In an interview Wednesday morning with CBS News, the parents avoided any criticism of Trump, describing him as warm and welcoming in the White House meeting.

During the meeting, the president initially rejected the likelihood of Sacoolas returning to the United Kingdom, without giving a reason, but he later signaled a possible shift later in their conversation, according to the Guardian.

U.K. Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab is reported to have said in a letter to the Dunn family that diplomatic immunity is "no longer relevant in Mrs. Sacoolas's case, because she has returned home".

Sacoolas left Britain shortly after, though police released a statement saying she had previously told them she had no plans to depart.

Mrs Sacoolas - who is reportedly married to a USA intelligence official who was stationed at RAF Croughton - was interviewed by police but then returned to the United States after claiming diplomatic immunity.

A statement issued yesterday by Radd Seiger, the family's adviser and spokesman, said: "The search for justice for Harry, of course, includes a search for the truth".

Mr Seiger told BBC Breakfast: "After quite honest and warm condolences [President Trump] got down to business and said he had Mrs Sacoolas in the next room".

"We don't want a meeting on U.S. soil where she now remains hidden and have his death swept under the carpet". He didn't realise he had a twin brother so he expressed he must be feeling the pain a lot more and to be fair to my ex-wife she didn't let him stop her, she just kept talking and talking and talking. I don't suppose we would have expected anything else.

"He was understanding and I think he genuinely will look to try to resolve this in a way to help us", he said.

Trump said Wednesday the meeting "was really handsome in a certain way".

Mr Dunn said of turning down the chance to meet Mrs Sacoolas at the White House: "We weren't ready to meet her - it would have been too rushed". Through her lawyers, Sacoolas has said she is "devastated" and is willing to meet Dunn's family.

"That would have been a traumatic experience for her son, and I'm sure the Sacoolas family are dealing with matters that are tragic as well", Mark Stephens, one of the lawyers advising the Dunn family, told the Guardian.

"The bombshell was dropped not soon after we walked in the room that Anne Sacoolas was in the building and was willing to meet with us", Ms Charles told Sky News UK.

Mr Trump last week called the collision "a bad accident" and said he planned to intervene by potentially arranging a meeting between the Dunns and Sacoolas.
