Donald Trump had met Orlando Police Sgt. Debra Clayton while in Florida and was horrified to hear she had been shot and killed Monday while trying to track down suspected murderer Markeith Loyd, Attorney General Pam Bondi told The Buzz.

"He was deeply, deeply disturbed by the murder of Sgt. Debra Clayton. In fact, he called and spoke with Seth (her husband)," said Bondi, who hooked up Trump and the officer's widower. "He had met Sgt. Clayton and remembered her well, and the president-elect was very upset by her homicide and we're just thrilled they have her murderer in custody."
