Officer David Fahey, 39, of the Cleveland, Ohio Police Department was killed by a speeding hit-and-run driver on January 24 while setting road flares at the scene of a fatal car crash.

On March 15 President Trump sent the following condolence letter to Fahey’s family:

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Ketterer:

It is with a heavy heart that I learned of the loss of your son, Officer David Fahey.

Our Nation owes a debt of gratitude to David for his honorable service in the United States Navy and on the Cleveland Police Force.

While no words can possibly console your family at this sorrowful time, I pray that you are strengthened by the memory of David’s enduring spirit and steadfast courage. He will forever be remembered for his commitment to protecting and serving the American people.

Melania and I join your family, friends, loved ones, and the Cleveland community in honoring David for making the ultimate sacrifice while in the line of duty.

/Signed/ Donald J. Trump

Fahey’s mother said: “It was awesome to have David honored like that. It was very personally written. That meant a lot to know it wasn’t just a standard letter.”

Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association President Steve Loomis said: “President Trump sending a personal condolence letter to the family of fallen Cleveland Police Officer David Fahey is an act of heartfelt kindness that is appreciated by all law enforcement officers and law abiding citizens everywhere, and will never be forgotten,”

What a refreshing change from the former President. I like it. President Trump is making America Great Again.

I haven't heard much from Black Lives Matter lately.
