The White House revealed a few minutes ago that President Trump called the Waffle House Hero, James Shaw, to commend him for his heroic efforts a few weeks ago in stopping a gunman:

I’m glad Trump called him, and on such an historic day!
The only point I wanted to make was that I suspect if Shaw had taken CNN’s bait a week ago and blasted the president for not calling him yet, this call would have never happened. But as we all saw, Shaw was a class act and the president eventually followed through.
Kudos to both!
