Dying man, President Trump: help of the man’s sister, a Democrat.
A dying man has one wish: to meet President Donald Trump.
His sister, a Democrat, is doing her best to make it happen, and Trump has responded.
CBS affiliate WFSB in West Haven, Connecticut, says Jay Barrett, who has cystic fibrosis and an outlook of only a few months, got a call from the White House and a gift is on its way from the president.
Even though Bridgette Hoskins is a Democrat, she emailed the White House and had her friends do it, too.
WFSB says Tuesday, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Lynn Patton, who is from New Haven, called Barrett, then put the president on the line.
Hoskie posted a video of the phone call on Facebook (warning: some may find the language objectionable).
Barrett is a Trump supporter and wants to live long enough to vote for him again in 2020.
