Since soldier Vanessa Guillen disappeared in April, the world has been eagerly awaiting news. Tragically, it has been confirmed she was found dead earlier this month. And now an unlikely hero has presented himself - President Trump.
It's not often you hear a positive story about Donald Trump.But this one has touched the hearts of many.
It's been a long first term...
via: GettySince winning his place in the White House back in 2017, President Trump has continued to divide opinions with his controversial politics and irrational behavior.
It's been a strange couple of years...
via: GettyNo one could quite believe what they were hearing when the notorious business tycoon announced his plans to run for President during the 2016 presidential campaigns.
But, this wasn't a publicity stunt.
via: GettyDonald Trump was being deadly serious about his bid for his place in the White House, and kicked off his campaign with an array of promises, such as building a wall along the border of Mexico, allowing all American's to the right to bear arms, and generally to "make America great again."
And when it came round to election day...The world awoke on November 9th to see that America officially had their new leader - President Donald Trump.
It's been an eventful few years, to say the least.
via: GettyIt's certainly been up and down - Trump has sparked his fair share of outrage, imposing a temporary travel ban on Muslims entering and leaving the U.S. and banning transgender people from the military, just for example. But he also passed a bill that makes animal cruelty a federal crime, and unemployment in the country is at an all-time low at just 3.6 percent.
Oh, and the infamous Mexican wall still hasn't been built.Though he has announced his plans to divert $7.2 million from the Pentagon for the border wall construction.
The President is no stranger to criticism and controversy...
via: GettyMuch of his behavior while acting as President has been questioned over the past couple of years, with many calling for him to be impeached, and even removed from office entirely.
And, earlier this year...Many prayers were answered when the President was actually impeached.
Trump was charged with 2 offenses.
via: GettyThe first was for abuse of power, and the second was an accusation of blocking his aides from testifying and failing to co-operate with the House impeachment investigation.
But despite his impeachment...
via: GettyTrump continues to hold an awful lot of power and his fan base is still going strong... which isn't necessarily a good thing considering the majority of Trump supporters hold far-right and very conservative ideologies.
Times are now harder than ever for the President...
via: GettySince the coronavirus pandemic took over the world back in March, there's no denying that Trump has handled it awfully.
Our country is now the worst affected in the world...
via: GettyAnd Trump just seems to be completely oblivious to how catastrophic the coronavirus has been for millions of people.
And not to mention the Black Lives Matter movement...
via: GettyPresident Trump has shown no real support for the historic and important movement and he clearly isn't interested in seeing any change for the African American community.
But recently, people are talking about something else instead.
via: Getty ImagesTrump has made headlines for a surprisingly positive reason this week.
The story is born out of a horrific tragedy.
via: Getty ImagesWhat happened to Vanessa Guillen is absolutely terrifying.
Vanessa Guillen was a Fort Hood soldier who disappeared on April 22.
via: Getty ImagesHer bones, hair, and other remains were discovered at the end of June.
Her murder captured the attention of the world.
via: Getty ImagesMany celebrities took on the case as a personal cause, and protests sprang up across the States.
It's believed Guillen had a history of being sexually harassed.
via: Getty ImagesHer family believes her murder was linked to this, and to the #MeToo movement.
U.S. Army Specialist Aaron Robinson was charged with her murder.
via: Getty ImagesBut as police approached him for his arrest, Robinson died by suicide.
This means it's unlikely Guillen will ever receive justice.
via: Getty ImagesAnd her family declined a military funeral after the trauma they'd been subjected to.
But now, an unlikely hero has stepped in.
via: GettyPresident Trump has offered his services to the Guillen family.
He met with Guillen's parents and offered to cover the costs of her funeral.
via: Getty ImagesWhen asked if he'd done this before, Trump responded, "I have, I have. I have to do it personally, I can’t do it through government."
"I have because some families need help. They need help."
via: Getty ImagesTrump also promised to help expedite the return of Guillen's remains to her family.
"I don’t even know if you need help, maybe you don’t need help from a financial standpoint."
via: Getty Images"I have no idea. I just think it’s a horrific thing that happened and if you did need help, I’ll be there to help you," Trump offered.
