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, reports the New York Post.
"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, was shot and killed last week by 35-year-old ex-con Manuel Rosales. Tuozzolo had been responding to a report of a break-in.
Trump has been a vocal supporter of the NYPD, even mentioning them in his victory speech Tuesday night.
