Susan Bro, the mother of Heather Heyer, who was killed while protesting against white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va., told Good Morning America that she has no interest in speaking to President Donald Trump since Trumpā€™s comments comparing anti-racism activists to the Ku Klux Klan and the like.

Bro told GMA that Trump and White House staff had tried to contact her on three separate occasions, including once during her daughterā€™s memorial service. Initially, Bro said, she was busy setting up her daughterā€™s foundation and dealing with the aftermath of her loss, and so she simply missed the calls.

After hearing Trumpā€™s comments, however, Bro now says that she never will speak to the president.

ā€œIā€™m not talking to the president now, Iā€™m sorry,ā€ Bro said candidly. ā€œAfter what he said about my child ... itā€™s not that Iā€™ve seen someone elseā€™s tweets about him. I saw an actual clip of him at a press conference equating the protesters, like Ms. Heyer, with the KKK and the white supremacists.ā€

Trump has enraged a lot of the nation (surprise, surprise) since he doubled down on comments comparing anti-racism activists, or the ā€œalt-left,ā€ as he put it, to white supremacists, insisting on the insane rhetoric that ā€œboth sidesā€ should be blamed for the violence in Charlottesville.
