Susan Bro, mother of the protester killed in Charlottesville, Heather Heyer, said she refuses to speak with President Trump after his controversial remarks on the protests. Following is a transcript of the video.
ABC: We understand that President Trump has reached out. Have you talked to him directly yet?
Bro: I have not and now I will not. At first, I just missed his calls. The first call it 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 them later.” And then I had more meetings to establish her foundation, so 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 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.Heyer with the KKK and the white supremacists.
