South Bend Woman's Quilt For Pres. Trump Delivered to White House

Betty Alexander wanted one of her quilts sent to the president. One Indiana lawmaker stepped in to help her make that wish come true.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- A quilt made for President Trump by a South Bend woman has made it to the White House.

Betty Alexander, 85, has been quilting for decades. She made her most recent quilt with the wish that it might one day reach the president.

She told the South Bend Tribune last month, "When I was thinking ‘who’s this quilt going to be for,’ the Holy Spirit just told me it should be for President Trump."

When Betty reached out to Senator Todd Young and told him about the quilt, he stepped in to make her wish come true.

Sen. Young called Thursday to let Betty know that her red, white, and blue quilt would be delivered to the White House on Friday.

Betty says she loves President Trump and hopes that her quilt will remind him of his mother, Mary Anne MacLeod Trump, who passed away in 2000.
