The mother of Heather Heyer, the 32-year-old woman who was killed on Saturday at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, revealed on Friday that she hasn’t spoken with Trump and “will not” speak with him either.
During her interview with Good Morning America, Susan Bro was asked if she has spoken to Trump in the wake of her daughter’s death.
“I have not and now I will not,” Susan Bro replied. She also added that she missed a handful of calls from the White House on Wednesday, the day of her daughter’s funeral.
She continued, “I hadn’t really watched the news until last night and I’m not talking to the president now, I’m sorry, after what he said about my child. It’s not that I saw somebody else’s tweets about him, I saw an actual clip of him at a press conference equating the protesters, like Ms. Heyer, with the KKK and the white supremacists.”
This was in reference to when Trump gave a press conference and blamed “both sides” for the violence that broke out at the Charlottesville rally.
She went on saying, “You can’t wash this one away by shaking my hand and saying, ‘I’m sorry.’ I’m not forgiving for that.” When asked if there was anything else she would like to say to Trump, she also added, “Think before you speak.”
On Wednesday, Trump tweeted about Heyer saying:
Memorial service today for beautiful and incredible Heather Heyer, a truly special young woman. She will be long remembered by all!
