President Trump met with several families behind closed doors after signing an executive order aimed at reforming America’s policing tactics.
Wanda Cooper Jones, whose son was chased down and confronted by three men and eventually shot to death, described Trump as “compassionate” to each of the families there and also said he was “very receiving” and that he “did assure every family that we will, we would and should expect change.”
She can be seen in a video shared by Fox News saying Trump was “very compassionate. He showed major concern for all families. Not just one family, but for all families. I can say that President Trump was very receiving. He listened and he addressed each and every family accordingly.”
She said after meeting Senator Tim Scott she was “very very emotional. We have mothers we have sisters we have grandmothers that were in the room and we’re in so much pain and we need some change.”
When asked, Jones said the reforms didn’t go far enough but were a good step. President Trump later tweeted praise for the grieving mother.
