President Trump sent a gift package to the 7-year-old boy who was seen in a viral video with his mother being confronted by two women outside of the Democratic National Convention in Wilmington, Delaware, last month.
Students for Trump, a group led by Charlie Kirk, the CEO for Turning Point USA, tweeted a photo on Tuesday of assorted items, including a signed “Make America Great Again” hat, a mug, a water bottle, and a number of other presidential paraphernalia it said was delivered to the boy, Riley, and his mother, Abbey.
The White House confirmed to the Washington Examiner that it sent the gifts to Riley and that the items were from the president’s personal collection.
Right before these two @JoeBiden supporters ASSAULTED 7-year-old Riley outside of the DNC National Convention, they threw coffee at me when I questioned them about President Trump.

The video shared by Students for Trump showed two women walking past Riley and his mother, ripping up their signs in support of Trump and taking a “Make America Great Again” hat from her son.
Riley is seen in the video protesting the girls’ actions. “That’s somebody else’s hat!” he said, appearing to cry. “I just wanted to sit on the floor.”
“Mom, call 911!” he pleaded.
In a tweet, Abbey said she was waiting for a table at a restaurant with her son after attending a demonstration against Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden as the women approached.
“We were standing outside peacefully minding our own business waiting for our table,” her statement read. “Suddenly, two Joe Biden supporters began to yell political epithets at my child. They ripped the sign from my arms and assaulted my seven year old son. The Joe Biden supporters laid hands on my child and ripped his ‘Make America Great Again’ hat from his head while cursing at him and pushing him over. The two Joe Biden supporters verbally and physically assaulted my child. My 7 year old child was sobbing and screaming.”
Abbey also said she was punched in the face and hit several times with the women’s purses. In the end, her son’s hat was thrown over a fence.
Among those who reacted to the video with disgust was Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. He called the incident “sick” and encouraged his followers to help identify the women.
Donald Jr. got involved to identify the assailants
Last night, Joe Biden supporters viciously attacked Riley, a 7 year-old @realDonaldTrump fan.
Joe Biden supporters stole Riley’s hat, ripped up his sign & made him cry.

Wilmington police were called to the site of the altercation and later arrested the women, who were identified as Olivia Winslow, 21, and Camryn Amy, 21.
Winslow was convicted of theft, fraud, and endangering a child’s wellbeing. She had been arraigned and released. Amy was convicted of the same three offenses and, much like her hero Biden, of offensive touching.
