President Donald Trump just made it crystal clear just how much our US police officers really mean to him.
While President Trump was on his way back to Air Force One through Indiana, Robert Turner, one of the Indianapolis Metropolitan police officers, got in a horrible motorcycle accident on I-70.
Though the cause of the crash is still unknown, many people stopped to take pictures and hesitated to help the officer off the ground. Witnesses posted pictures showing the officer with cuts and bruises lying on the ground next to his motorcycle on the highway.
Even after help arrived to save the officer, Turner’s motorcycle was left behind, destroyed on the road as people drove around it.
Officer Turner was rushed to the hospital and immediately put into a neck brace. He appeared to be in very poor condition.
But then he received a call…
President Donald Trump found out about the accident and decided to personally call the officer at the hospital to see how he was doing and to give him a few words of encouragement.
According to ijr:
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department posted to Facebook that Trump refused to take off until he spoke with the wounded officer to thank him for his service. Watch:
The caption read:
Video of injured Officer Turner speaking with President Donald J. Trump. POTUS delayed taking off from #Indy until he was assured Officer Turner was ok and he also called and spoke with the Officer. #ThankYou
On behalf of the IMPD, we would like to take an opportunity to thank President Donald J. Trump for his thoughtful act in delaying his departure in Air Force One until he was assured that the officer injured in the motorcade accident was ok.
Calls were made by his staff to Chief Bryan Roach checking on Cycle Officer Turner. President Trump even took the time to speak with Officer Turner after the accident, to check on him. Thank you for your compassion, concern, and leadership Mr. President!
Don't you just love how the president made it very clear how much he cares about our law enforcement.
