HERSHEY, Pa. — The mother of a 19-year-old who was killed in a motorcycle accident took the stage at a Donald Trump rally Friday night, and spoke glowingly of the GOP nominee in a seven-minute speech in which she said her son loved Trump, and asked voters to vote for Trump to honor his memory.

“Riley loved Mr. Trump. He was obsessed with Mr. Trump,” Barbara Rone said of her son, who was killed just months ago in a summer accident in New Jersey. She said Riley had predicted that Trump would win the general election even when there were 17 candidates running on the GOP side.
She described how graciously Trump treated her family following the loss of her son, and mention the time Trump tweeted out a message of remembrance for Riley and sent the family a hand-written letter. She said at the time, they had never met and that Trump didn’t “know us from Adam.”
“He does now,” Barbara Rone said.
After her son’s death, Rone said she was watching a rally Trump held in Florida, and said when it ended, her phone rang and Donald Trump was on the other end of the line.
“We watched him leave the stage, and within minutes our phone rang. It was Mr. Trump,” Rone said. She said Trump told her he would give up everything he had to bring back her son.”
“What kind of man is this? What kind of man who is running for the highest office in our land … takes out the time from his campaign to call us?!” Rone said as her voiced cracked. “I want you to please, please vote for Mr. Donald Trump in my son’s honor. Please.”
She said that son’s gravestone features the Statue of Liberty and a marker with Trump’s name on it.
After Rone spoke, Trump appeared to wipe away a tear before resetting and stepping back to the microphone.
