While the democrats and their progressive ilk continue to demonize The Donald as some sort of racist, megalomaniac monster, the President is taking the inherent humanity of the office to another level.
Of course, as a President with no conventional political experience, we would expect there to be little time for Donald Trump to interact with the populace at large, just based on the idea that the learning curve in the Oval Office would be so immense. Instead, what Trump has shown us is that the office of the President truly needed an outsider to recalibrate the vaunted position.
Now, we are learning of a recent instance in which President Trump was compelled to respond to a 7 year old letter writer who was the unfortunate witness of a horrific school shooting incident that left one of her most beloved classmates dead.
“Ava Rose Olsen lost her best friend, Jacob Hall, in a 2016 shooting at their elementary school in Townville, South Carolina. Plagued by anxiety that has prevented her from going back to class following the incident, and fearful for other children attending school, Ava wrote to President Trump to ask him how he would protect children from guns, her mother said in an interview with The Washington Post.
“’I heard and saw it all happen and I was very scared. My best friend, Jacob, was shot and died. That made me very sad. I loved him and was going to marry him one day. I hate guns. One ruined my life and took my best friend,’ Ava wrote back in August last year.”
The President had a very delicate response for the young woman, belying a far more human side to the often calculating Commander in Chief.
“In a letter Ava’s family received in December, the president thanked the 7-year-old for her letter, and said his prayers were with Ava and her family, as well as the family of her best friend, Jacob.
“’Schools are places where children learn and grow with their friends. Their halls should be free of fear. It is my goal as president to make sure that children in America grow up in safe environments, giving them the best opportunity to reach their full potential,’ Trump’s letter said.
“’I will continue to focus on protecting Americans and improving the safety of our nation,’ he added.”
This compassionate response will likely be buried by the liberal media in favor of some pedantic bickering over the “substance” of the President’s response.
