President Donald Trump has wished a speedy recovery to two LA country deputies who were wounded in the brazen ambush and he spoke to the female officer, who was seen in her hospital bed. This is after the two deputies were shot while on duty near a transit station.
According to the LA Country Sheriff’s Department, Claudia Apolinar who was shot multiple times received a call from President Donald Trump wishing her a speedy recovery. Due to her injuries, she delivered her responses to Trump through LASD Transit Sgt. Frederickson, the department posted on their Facebook page.
In the post, the department wrote, “A week ago today, a callous and heartless criminal attempted to murder two of the heroes that work hard every day to keep you safe when riding @metrolosangeles.
“The outpouring of love and support from our Department, @lacosherrif, the community, and indeed from around the world, has been overwhelming, but also very much appreciated,” it said.
“This week #potus45 @realdonaldtrump called both of our deputies to check on their spirits, wish them a speedy recovery and remind them that the #american people are behind them and that the coward that harmed them will be brought to #Justice!!”
The investigations are still ongoing and the sources told NBC LA that a man taken into custody after a carjacking in Lynwood was linked to the probe, however, Alex Villanueva has not confirmed that information.
