Horace Anderson lost his 19 year-old son after he was shot to death in Seattle’s ‘CHOP’ zone.
It’s obviously a tragic loss for him and his family. You might think Jenny Durkan, the mayor of Seattle would pick up the phone and give him a call.
She didn’t, but President Trump did.
Q13 FOX in Seattle reports:
Father of 19-year-old killed in CHOP says he got condolence call from President Trump, but not Seattle’s mayor
The family of a 19-year-old shot and killed at the edge of the Seattle CHOP zone was laid to rest today in Kent.
The father of Horace Lorenzo Anderson Jr. told us, he still hasn’t received a call about his son’s death from the Mayor of Seattle Jenny Durkan, but he got a condolence call this morning from President Trump.
“Incredibly, Donald Trump called me,” said 50-year-old Horace Lorenzo Anderson Sr. “The President of the United States called me today. He gave his condolences, and me, I’m not a political guy. I told him, ‘Nobody like you.’ I’m real. Donald Trump called me and he didn’t have to call me.”
There was an overflow crowd and overflowing emotions at the funeral home in Kent, where hundreds showed up for today’s service.
“I haven’t been able to sleep. I wake up in the middle of the night. I go look for him. He ain’t there,” said the older Anderson.

Here’s a longer clip of the segment:
Horace Lorenzo Anderson Jr. was 19 years old.
He was shot and killed after Seattle's mayor allowed the lawless autonomous zone "CHOP" to stay.
The mayor didn't care about Horace's Black life.
But President Trump did.
