President Donald Trump has reached out to the Pollack family in Parkland following the loss of their daughter and sister, Meadow, in the February shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
Hunter Pollack, Meadow’s brother, tweeted on Monday about the a letter penned by Trump, thanking the president.
“Our entire Nation mourns the tragic loss of Meadow. Our hearts are heavy for you and your entire family,” Trump wrote in the letter, dated March 12.
The letter continues, “I am deeply grateful for your presence at the White House for discussions regarding school safety. I was touched by the memories of Meadow you shared. It was clear that she had a bright future, full of tremendous potential — I know that you were so proud of her. We will not forget her life, and we are resolved to confront the evil that so senselessly took her from us. Melania and I hold you close in our hearts, and we pray for your comfort and strength.”
Days after the shooting that left 17 dead, father Andrew Pollack and sons Hunter and Huck traveled to Washington, where they participated in a listening session with the President.
A grieving Andrew Pollack, standing feet from the President, raised his voice at one point: “I’m pissed. It was my daughter I am not going to see again. She is not here. She is not here. She is in North Lauderdale at whatever it is, King David Cemetery, that is where I go to see my kid now.”
