Rochelle “Silk” Richardson has revealed the kind gesture President Donald Trump quietly made for her family after the death of her sister, Lynette “Diamond” Hardaway.
Diamond of the pro-Trump duo “Diamond and Silk” passed away suddenly earlier this month at her North Carolina home.
She was 51 years old.
During a celebration of life ceremony for Diamond, Silk spoke about Trump’s relationship with her family.
Richardson revealed that Trump covered all the costs of the ceremony, without any fanfare.
“I got to tell this,” she said.
“And I pray and hope that it is OK with President Trump because, he does things and it don’t get out in public, and now that I have the world’s attention, I have to say this.
“When I told him that Diamond had passed, he said, ‘ohhh,’ he was heartbroken.
“He said, ‘OK, we’re going to have a nice gathering for her, a nice funeral,’ and I said, ‘oh no we don’t have a body.’
“We followed her wishes and we cremated her.
“He said ‘OK, I want you to do whatever you want, I want you to have the best of whatever you want, and whatever you want Diamond would have, and I don’t want you to worry about paying for nothing.’
“That’s what this man did for my sister!
“He didn’t waver. He didn’t think about it.
“This is what a president is supposed to do.
“See, Jim Crow Joe Biden ain’t called me yet,” she revealed.
“He ain’t gonna call me.”

Social media users agreed.
“That’s a good man,” one said.
“I don’t care what people say about Trump.
“His decency is never reported and his bad behavior is always exaggerated.”
Another Twitter user said:
“Juxtapose this with Biden checking his watch while the caskets of 13 brave service members were being deplaned.”
That’s a good man. I don’t care what people say about Trump.His decency is never reported and his bad behavior is always exaggerated.
