President Trump Just Did Something Amazing for an Injured Police Officer

President Trump delayed his departure on Air Force One to spend some time with an Indiana police officer who was injured while guarding the President’s motorcade.

President Trump was in Indiana yesterday to deliver his plan for tax reform in America and while the trip was mostly uneventful for the President, it was very eventful for one police officer.

Officer Robert Turner had been assigned to guard the President’s motorcade, but during his shift he was involved in an accident while riding his motorcycle and had to be treated for injuries on-scene before being rushed to the hospital.

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department happened to record the moment when President Trump delayed his flight so that he could call Officer Turner to speak with him, and to thank him for being willing to sacrifice himself for others.

Officer Turner can be seen in good spirits, talking, and laughing with the President who wished Turner a full and speedy recovery.

The IMPD posted the video with this message to their Twitter account: #BREAKING: Thank you to @POTUS for delaying wheels up to speak with injured Officer Turner. #ThankYou.”

That’s a classy move President Trump. Thank you for taking the time to care for our nation and our heroes.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
