The afternoon of President Trump’s first State of the Union Address 13 days ago, The Washington Post ran a story about a special interaction the President had with campaign volunteer Shane Bouvet:
The unusual meeting was arranged after Trump said he read a profile about Bouvet in The Washington Post. The struggling single father had spent nights working and days volunteering for Trump, who Bouvet hoped could bring renewal to his home town of Stonington, Ill., and other corners hard hit by the decline in U.S. industry.
On Monday, [a $10,000 check from the President] arrived in the mail.
… Bouvet said he planned to use the money to pay for chemotherapy for his father, who he said is suffering from bladder cancer.
On Friday, President Trump once again met with Bouvet—along with his father, Donald Bouvet, who is now cancer-free.
