President Trump Sends a Special Message to David

It has been two years since President Donald Trump sent his encouraging message to David, recognizing David as the fighter that he was!

David passed away just 8 short days after receiving President Trump's message on June 20, 2019, but his sentiments were meaningful nonetheless.

Politics aside, we can agree this was a very special and unforgettable gesture by our president. And David absolutely appreciated it!
