The Hill reports:
President Trump on Thursday called the man he mocked for having a “weight problem” at a New Hampshire rally earlier that evening after discovering he was a supporter. A senior administration official said Friday that after campaign staff got the rally-goer’s contact information, Trump called him from Air Force One on the way back to Bedminster, N.J. The president left a voicemail message.
The man, Frank Dawson, a law enforcement and Navy veteran, was interviewed by Fox News Thursday night following the rally and revealed he was a Trump supporter, adding that he ripped signs out of the hands of nearby protesters at the rally. “He didn’t see me rip the signs away from those three people that were sitting near us,” Dawson told Fox. “It wasn’t going to happen because I’m trying to listen to my president.”
Correction: Trump did not apologize, a White House official tells me. He phoned the supporter, left him a message thanking him for his support, but did not use the words “sorry” or “apologize.” https://t.co/0G32RSHI1G
