Prior to meeting President Obama in the White House today, Trump took time out of his schedule to call the widow of a slain NYPD officer.

I can think of nothing that better demonstrates the difference between the current and future residents in the White House.


President-elect Donald Trump called slain NYPD Sgt. Paul Tuozzolo’s widow Thursday morning and personally extended his “condolences” to her on the day that thousands of police officers paid tribute to the fallen Finest at his funeral.
“I’m very sorry I cannot be there with you today. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time,” Trump told the grieving woman, according to a source.

“I want to express my condolences from me and my family.”
Tuozzolo, a married father-of-two, [URL='http://nypost.com/2016/11/04/two-cops-shot-near-playground-in-the-bronx/']was shot and killed last week

Thousands of cops gathered in Long Island on Thursday for Tuozzolo’s funeral.

A line of officers extended for nearly a mile as a hearse carrying his flag-draped casket made it’s way to St. Charles & Resurrection Cemetery in East Farmingdale for his interment.

Friends and family described the 19-year veteran as a “family man” and “protector” who was willing to do anything he could to save lives.

Trump has been a vocal supporter of the NYPD, even mentioning them in his victory speech on Tuesday night.

“Law enforcement in New York City. They are here tonight. They are spectacular people,” he said. “Sometimes underappreciated, unfortunately — but we appreciate them.”
