Donald Trump made one phone call that took everyone by surprise
America is in turmoil right now.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa are rioting in the streets and tearing down statues.
Now Donald Trump made one phone call that took everyone by surprise.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa seized control of a six block city area in Seattle by chasing out the police.
They renamed the new area the Capitol Hill Autonomous zone.
Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkam praised it as a “summer of love.”
But an area with no police quickly turned ugly as there were numerous allegations of sexual assault, multiple shootings, and two deaths.
Horace Lorenzo Anderson, Jr. was one of the innocents killed.
For all the talk of “black lives matter,” the terrorists that formed the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone had no problem gunning down an innocent black man.
After Donald Trump saw Horace Lorenzo Anderson, Sr.’s gut wrenching interview with Sean Hannity, the President reached out to Anderson, Sr. with a phone call to offer his consolation and grief for his loss.
Fox News reports:
“We just talked to the president of the United States,” Anderson’s friend and family spokesman Andre Taylor, who took part in Wednesday’s interview, told Fox News. “How are you going to top that?”
Taylor said Trump told Anderson he saw his interview with Hannity Wednesday night and was moved by the grieving father’s grace in the face of tragedy. In what Taylor said was a seven-minute call, Trump offered his condolences and support.
“He said he watched ‘Hannity’ last night, and told Horace, ‘Your son is looking down on you and watching over you,’” Taylor recounted. “He was incredibly gracious, and it gave Horace some extra help as he buried his son.”
The President’s critics in the Fake News Media accused him of lacking empathy in dealing with the fallout from George Floyd’s death.
But that is nonsense.
No Democrat reached out to the Anderson family.
The President did.
It wasn’t a political act and the president didn’t make a big deal about it.
This call was just one father reaching out to another father in his time of grief.
