Trump offers condolences to lawmaker whose daughter and son-in-law were killed by gangs in Haiti

 May 29, 2024

Former President Donald Trump called Missouri State Rep. Ben Baker (R) to offer condolences after his daughter and son-in-law were slaughtered by gangs in Haiti, Breitbart reported. The slain couple were in the nation as Christian missionaries. 

President Joe Biden often speaks about his own grief to stricken parents, but Trump offered true worlds of consolation to Baker. “Just got off the phone with Donald J Trump,” the Republican lawmaker wrote on X, formerly Twitter.

“He was just calling to give condolences to us and to the family for Davy and Natalie. He really does care about people,” Baker wrote. He noted that Trump said Natalie and Davy Lloyd “looked like models.” Baker ended his post with, “Thank you, Mr. President.”

A Vicious Slaying

The pair were shot on May 22 at 9 p.m. after falling victim to gang violence that plagues the Caribbean nation, Fox News reported. The couple were there as part of the Christian nonprofit Missions in Haiti that Davy Lloyd’s parents started.

Missions in Haiti reported that Natalie and Davy Lloyd and several children were “ambushed by a gang of three trucks full of guys” at the church where they were hosting a youth group. “Davy was taken to the house tied up and beat,” a Missions in Haiti social media post noted.

“The gang then took our trucks and loaded everything up they wanted and left," Missions In Haiti added. Then “another gang” showed up “to see what was going on and if they could help, so they say."

Unfortunately, what ensued was more violence. "No one understood what they were doing, not sure what took place, but one was shot and killed, and now this gang went into full attack mode," Missions In Haiti added.

Meanwhile, Davy and Natalie Lloyd remained at the house with another person named Jude. They were in communication with the nonprofit as they hid during the attack, but the Lloyds ultimately met their demise.

 A Father’s Grief

Baker announced the death of his daughter and son-in-law in a post to Facebook Thursday along with a photo of the couple. He said their bodies were recovered by the U.S. State Department as the rest of the post made it clear that the gravity of the tragedy weighed heavily on the lawmaker.

"My heart is broken in a thousand pieces. I’ve never felt this kind of pain," Baker wrote in the crushing post.

"They went to Heaven together. Please pray for my family we desperately need strength,” he added.

“And please pray for the Lloyd family as well. I have no other words for now,” Baker concluded.

Trump not only spoke publicly about Natalie and Davy Lloyd’s death, but he also went the extra mile, reaching out to Baker in a personal phone call. Trump is a great leader who indeed cares about people while Democrats like Biden simply pretend.
