Orlando, FL - The 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, made a point during the busy inauguration time to call the husband of fallen Orlando Lieutenant Debra Clayton. Lt. Clayton was violently gunned down after making contact with wanted murderer, Markeith Loyd. After a week-long manhunt Loyd was taken into custody.
According to WKMG, Lt. Debra Clayton's husband received a phone call from President-elect Donald Trump in the days after her death. Florida State Attorney General Pam Bondi said on Wednesday that Trump and Seth (Clayton's husband) had a "brief, very touching, private conversation between two husbands." Lt. Debra Clayton left behind a devoted family and many relationships in the Orlando community.
Lt. Debra Clayton was laid to rest during a three-hour funeral service, at the First Baptist Church of Orlando. Orlando Police Chief John Mina posthumously promoted (Master Sergeant) Clayton to the rank of Lieutenant. The crowd stood to its feet in applause. “You exhibited the best in policing,” Mina said. “She urged the people to not give up on our Police Department.” Clayton worked for years to build relationships between the community and the department, leading in roles such as a public liaison officer. Law enforcement came from all across the country to Orlando in support of Lt. Debra Clayton’s family, her department and her legacy. Officers came from as far as The NYPD to pay their respects.
This morning brought a transition of power in Washington D.C. between an administration that has all but crucified our law enforcement and an incoming administration that has gone out of their way to back the blue.
As rioters have taken to the streets to destroy innocent people's property and safety in protest of our new President, law enforcement all across our country breathes a sigh of relief for the incoming administration.
As the wife of a brave Peacekeeper, knowing that we have a leader who supports our officers takes a huge weight off my heart.
God Bless the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump and God Bless the USA.
