Susan Bro, the mother of Heather Heyer, who was killed in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend said she is not interested in hearing from the Trump because she believes he equated her daughter to white supremacists. She told Good Morning America today,
“I’m not talking to the President now. I’m sorry. After what he said about my child, and 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. (Heather) Heyer with the KKK and the white supremacists.“
Bro said the White House attempted to reach her repeatedly during her daughter’s funeral on Wednesday.
“At first I just missed his calls. The call — the first call looked like actually came during the funeral. I didn’t even see that message.
There were three more frantic messages from press secretaries throughout the day and I didn’t know why that would have been on Wednesday, and I was home recovering from the exhaustion of the funeral and, so I thought well, I’ll get to him later and then I had more meetings to establish her foundation, so I hadn’t really watched the news until last night
You can’t wash this one away by shaking my hand and saying ‘I’m sorry.’ I’m not forgiving for that.“
Asked if there was something she wanted to say to the President, Bro said,
“Think before you speak.“
