DONALD TRUMP'S REACTION TO QUEEN'S DEATH STRIKES UNCHARACTERISTIC TONE
By KATHRYN COOK
Former U.S. president Donald Trump issued a lengthy statement on his social media platform Truth Social shortly after Queen Elizabeth II’s death. While many of Trump’s public comments, especially on social media, use harsh language and eventually devolve into ranting, his tribute to the queen struck an uncharacteristic tone.
“Melania and I are deeply saddened to learn of the loss of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II,” Trump wrote. “Together with our family and fellow Americans, we send our sincere condolences to the Royal Family and the people of the United Kingdom during this time of great sorrow and grief.” Trump also spoke of the queen’s “tremendous legacy.”
In a second post, Trump added, “What a grand and beautiful lady she was—there was nobody like her!”, and sent his “thoughts and prayers” to the people of the United Kingdom in a third statement. The ex-president concluded, “May God bless the Queen, may she reign forever in our hearts, and may God hold her and Prince Philip in abiding care.”
