It was a sad story.
Edwin Jackson, a linebacker for the Indianapolis Colts, and his ride-share driver, Jeffrey Monroe, were killed in an auto accident on Sunday.
It is terrible news for the families of both men and to those who admired Jackson’s playing and to his friends and team mates.
When Donald Trump found out that the other driver involved in the tragic accident was a drunk driver and an undocumented immigrant Trump immediately went to Twitter.
So disgraceful that a person illegally in our country killed @Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson. This is just one of many such preventable tragedies. We must get the Dems to get tough on the Border, and with illegal immigration, FAST!

Edwin Jackson’s death meant nothing to Trump other than as tool to advance his racist demagoguery.
Another sad story:
Brandon Porter-Young was another victim of Chicago violence.
My heart goes out to Brandon’s mom and his friends at Whitney Young.
I doubt they should expect a call or even a tweet from the President.
What poisonous purpose would that serve?
