The widow of slain California police officer Cpl. Ronil Singh took the microphone at a fallen officers’ memorial service Wednesday at the White House.
Anamika Singh, carrying her 10-month-old son on her hip, had not planned to speak but changed her mind after listening to her brother-in-law, Reggie Singh, speak to the crowd. (RELATED: Canine Partner Of Murdered Officer Will Retire, Love With Singh’s Widow And Son)
President Donald Trump introduced the young widow, saying, “She said ‘no, no, I don’t want to speak. Actually, I do.’ I like that. I think it’s great.”
Noting that she had not properly thanked Trump in the office, she began, “I actually want to thank you personally, you’re the only one that actually reached out and gave your condolences to the family, and it actually means a lot to all of our law enforcement families that are here, for the sacrifice my husband and his brothers in blue and sisters in blue have given.”
