Officer Escorting Him Crashes — Trump Refuses to Let Air Force One Take Off Until He Talks to Him

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump was being escorted through Indiana on the way back to Air Force One when one of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police officers, Robert Turner, crashed his motorcycle on I-70, Blue Lives Matter reported.


The cause of the crash is unknown, but it appears people stopped to take pictures instead of helping the officer. Several pictures show the officer, with several cuts, lying next to his motorcycle on the ground.

After help arrived, Turner’s motorcycle was left behind on the road.

The officer was rushed to the hospital and put into a neck brace and appeared to be in poor condition. But then, he received a call from Trump.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department posted to Facebook that Trump refused to take off until he spoke with the wounded officer to thank him for his service. Watch:

The caption read:

On behalf of the IMPD, we would like to take an opportunity to thank President Donald J. Trump for his thoughtful act in delaying his departure in Air Force One until he was assured that the officer injured in the motorcade accident was ok.

Calls were made by his staff to Chief Bryan Roach checking on Cycle Officer Turner. President Trump even took the time to speak with Officer Turner after the accident, to check on him. Thank you for your compassion, concern, and leadership Mr. President!


The president made it very clear just how much he cares about law enforcement.

      I suggest that to those looking constantly for negative points about President Trump…..realize….he is not only a man of action, but compassion without a spine of jelly.Lead, follow, or get out of the way….he is a LEADER

    Nobody is this divided country can calim to be “we the people.” Each side in these culture wars think they are correct. Both sides talk right past each other. Shame on us all.

    Our society: Grap that opportunity to be “fameous” for at least one second. Amazing that people are more interested in the picture they capture instead of dropping the dang phones and helping an individual in need. Sad world. Oh, wait, it was a police officer. No brainer, don’t help, just gawk morons.

    Everything the Lying News Media says about Trump is untrue! Would a white supremacist care about the black motorcycle cop? Don’t think so!Liberals and the Lying News Media are the real enemies of America! Remember when the media use to be fair and didn’t lie? I don’t either!

        PROVE IT!!!!! If that would of been Obama his car would of drove on by the accident where that police officer was laying face down on the concrete and Obama would of looked out his window and said “I hope he’ll be OK”. Just like Benghazi when he found out what happened the the deaths of 4 Americans one a Ambassador he got on his plane and took off to Nevada to do some campaigning. Yes “And everything Trump says is a lie”. How can you say it’s a lie when you heard the police officer’s voice talking to him on the phone. Man you are one piece of work.

        During the flight, Trump spoke to Turner by phone to check on his condition and express his gratitude for his service, according to the White House.

    I sure hope Officer Turner is OK. President Trump showed us once again that he is the real stand-up, compassionate leader we all knew he was. He saved us all from Socialist doom. Obama wouldn’t have given this policeman a second thought…

    Just read this article and have this big question for all of us? when if ever will we get over this idea of different color, I am talking to every human in this country? If we don’t stop destroying our selves over such little things how can we ever be a great nation again. Our Country went through one horrendous Civil war before any of us here now were alive and as things now stand we are about to go that route again and there will be no outcome for any of us but the ravages and stench of death and destruction. We have just endured two very devastating hurricane events where everybody of all colors worked and are working together so what in God’s name is taking place now? Maybe the fact that we have misplaced God is a place to start. I have never seen so many one year old, adult people try to destroy each other. Surely the evil forces within all of us are happy while we throw to good away and burn it Not one thing any of us have is of our own abilities

      Don’t pat yourself on the back too much on this point. Both President Obama and President Clinton did the same thing with motorcycle cops who crashed while securing their motorcades. Motorcycle cops have to drive ahead of the motorcade to secure highway onramps and often need to drive in excess of 100 MPH; so these motorcycle crashes do tend to happen. It’s common sense and common decency. Your guy ain’t nuthin’ special.

    Prime example of just how caring Pres. Trump is and how he shows his sincere gratitude vs how toxic the lame stream media’s attitude is. No one gives a crap about the latter and it will translatei n 2018.

    I cannot say that any president since Reagan would have made an effort such as this, delaying his own agenda to reach out to an ordinary civil servant. That takes true compassion. Thank you, President Trump!

    I am a 70 yr old man who’s not ashamed to say these acts of compassion by our President Trump stir me emotionally with extreme pride yet when Liberal news media as well as liberal pundits outright lie about his actions & programs to the public, hurts me just as much in the opposite of that pride. I feel-no I know America will benefit hundreds of 1,000’s of times over anything liberal Democrats could do for America right now. JUST LOOK AT THE STATS OF THE LAST 8 yrs under the extreme failures of Obama. I could say so much more of mine as well of the majority of this nations dissatisfaction over these media & liberal pundits acts as well as those of our most resent past president. President Donald J. Trump will @MAGA

    The NFL is protesting you Trump, for being a white supremisist shown in all your actions where blacks are involved. Can you not get this? Are you stupid too? Being a white supremacist AND stupid DO go together….Jesus ‼️

    (Am I doing it right, liberals?)

    I did hear later Officer Turner will recover. I am so glad. Bless him and a speedy recovery
    sir. Bless Our President, a REAL caring man. I doubt the President knew, asked or even cared WHAT the Officer’s race is. WHY is it even being brought up? An Officer got hurt doing his job while on a PresidentiaL Detail. The President cared enough to find out if he was ok, and not badly injured and talked to him to make sure.

    President Trump is the Best, the NFL and its players the worst. I will not be watching the NFL while it and the players disrespect our Flag. I believe in free speech and the right to peaceful protest, but bow your head for Jesus and stand for our Flag with your hand over your heart.

    So he used the near-fatal accident of a police officer for a photo op? Sounds consistent.

  34. fuck donald trump

    September 30, 2017 at 11:41 pm

    this has no significance whatsoever , most people would’ve done the same things. trump did this and conservative media outlets blow it up because the officer was african american and it makes trump look good , because that is what he is about. he discouraged any negative media outlet as “fake news” even though everything that legitimate news sources put out has been verified , unlike shitty alt-right conservative shitpiles like this page. fuck trump and fuck conservatives, they all are a bunch of white motherfuckers who fight to shove more money up their ass and take what they can from those who “don’t deserve” it in their eyes.

    Your morons don’t find this strange that only 9 people commented on this article and its days now that it was released. Let me help you as to why ITS FAKE. Regarding the anthem you are all up in arms over a two minute protest. I guess you prefer the protest where police shoot or disburse blacks with water hoses. It’s ok to burn the flag now that is a sign of disrespect why do you think people are burning jerseys….to show a sign of disrespect. You guys allow porn stars to be draped in underwear with the flag design in sex scenes with underwear up their butt crack with the same flag and their is no outcry.Musty shirts with the flag, scarfs with the flag to wipe sweaty brows and greasy hands and no out cry. You people are sickening.
