As you can hear in the clip, Silk, speaking about what Trump did and how he offered to help her out in honoring her sister and her passing, said:
“I got to tell this and I pray and hope that it is okay with President Trump because he does things. And it don’t get out in public.
“And now that I have the world’s attention, I have to say this. So, Mr. President, please don’t get mad at me. But I got to say, when I, when this man called me and we talked about it, he said, when he, when I told him that time had passed, he said all he was heartbroken.
“He said, ‘we’re gonna have a nice gathering for her nice funeral.’ And I said, ‘Oh, no, we don’t we don’t have a body. We, we, we follow her wish wishes and we cremated.’
“He said, ‘Okay.’ He said, ‘I want you, I want you to do whatever you want. I want you to have the best of whatever you want. And whatever you want, Diamond will have and I don’t want you to worry about paying for nothing.’
“That’s what this man did fom my sister. He didn’t waver. He didn’t think about it. He said, ‘You know what? I gotta be there. I’m going to be there’ is what he said to me.
“Oh, God. This is what a president supposed to do. See? Jim Crow Joe Biden and called me yet, he ain’t gonna call me. It was President Donald J. Trump that picked up the phone and called me you all.”
Commenting on the above video, people on Twitter were largely positive, saying things like:
“What a wonderful man Donald J Trump is! Now let’s give him the final 4 Years to finish what he started! God Bless Diamond and her family, and God Bless Donald J Trump the man🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻”
“Juxtapose this with Biden checking his watch while the caskets of 13 brave service members were being deplaned.”
“He’s a good dude, always has been.”
“We don’t deserve him”
“Jim Crowe Joe hahaha you gotta love this woman energy even in the face of such heartbreak losing her sister like that. 😂”
“I’ll never forget Ms. Diamond and Silk joining President Trump in Iowa to speak on his behalf way back when in the 1st Primary. Pretty Epic. RIP, Ma’am. Thank you for everything, you were one of our original MAGA people. True Patriot.”
“He really is a good man. RIP Diamond.”
