Victim Charlottesville: Mother refuses to talk to Trump
Susan Bro, the mother of the woman killed by an extreme right-wing man who entered a group of left-wing protesters in Charlottesville, refuses to talk to President Donald Trump. The White House had said to have a conversation with the woman.
The mother of 32-year-old Heather Heyer refuses this, “after all he said about my child,” she told ABC News on Friday.
“Just after the funeral, I only saw a clip from the press conference in which he compared the protesters my daughter was part of with the Ku Klux Klan and Neo-Nazis,” said Bro. “I’ll never forgive him. Such a statement can not be forgiven with an invitation and a handshake.”
She gave President Trump an opinion at the end of the conversation: “Think before you say something.”
The White House told Thursday to “look for a moment when it came to the family to speak to the president.” A president’s representative made a first attempt at rapprochement during the funeral on Wednesday, Bro said.
At the funeral of her daughter last Wednesday, the mother said that “they tried to keep my child silent. But you know, with your actions, you only made her words stronger and more influential. I’d rather be my child But now that she is deceased, we are going to make sure her death has some value.”
Both to blame
Heyer died when an extreme right man entered a group of counter demonstrators. It took more than two days before President Donald Trump condemned the act in particular and neo-Nazis in general. Later, Trump reiterated his statement and said that “both parties” contributed to the incident during the demonstration.
His remarks led to a storm of raging and shocked reactions. For example, economic headlines left two major economic advisory councils of the White House and also talked to Trump’s major contenders of his behavior.
Many media have posted cartoons in the last couple of days that the President and the White House were linked to the Ku Klux Klan and Neo-Nazis.
The anger about Trump’s comments has led to the removal of statues of important Confederation leaders in the southern US in recent days. The alliance of southern states stretched during the Civil War (1861-1865) for the right to slave. These actions also condemned Trump. “It’s sad that big heroes from the history of our amazing country are soaked in this way,” the president told Twitter through his favorite communication channel.
The Security Committee of the United States House of Representatives will meet soon after the incident in Charlottesville for a hearing on the threat of extreme right-wing groups in the United States.
