Letter to the editor: Trump should follow New Zealand’s example

I just read a Guardian piece on the terrorist attack in New Zealand that included a video of the Prime Minister (a woman — hard to imagine a man acting like this) bringing flowers to the memorial and hugging a family member of a victim.
My thought: Here is the leader of this ‘down under’ country, New Zealand, mourning with affected citizens — crying, hugging, laying flowers. The leader of my country? Cited by the alleged perpetrator as an inspiration for his violent actions in the ‘Manifesto’ he published on line and sent to the Prime Minister and other Parliamentary offices minutes before the attack.
I’ve never really related to the phrase “God save the Queen (King),” but: please God, save President Trump and his supporters.
