A grieving father whose child was murdered in Seattle’s ‘CHOP’ zone spoke with Sean Hannity Wednesday night; saying President Trump personally called him to express his condolences during the funeral.
“Mr. Anderson has received an outpouring of support, including a phone call from Donald Trump. Mr. Anderson, everybody asked me: ‘Nobody called?’” asked Hannity.
“I want to give my heart to everyone, because of your show people have been reaching out to me from around the world,” said the grieving father. “It’s been very overwhelming.”
“How was the President’s call?” asked Hannity. “Tell us about that.”
“He called and gave his condolences,” he added.
“The President was extremely gracious. He called during the funeral services. I don’t want to belittle the power of the presidency. It was very, very special for him and myself,” said the spokesman for the family.
