Trump attends wake of fallen NYPD officer while Biden attends NYC fundraiser with Obama, Colbert

Former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden each were in New York on Thursday as Biden attended a campaign fundraiser while Trump attended the wake of a slain New York Police Department officer.

Officer Jonathan Diller was fatally shot during a traffic stop earlier this week. He is survived by his wife and 1-year-old son. 

Trump was invited to the wake by Diller’s family and was “moved by the invitation,” said spokeswoman Karoline Leavitt, the New York Post reports

The wake occurred in Massapequa, Long Island, New York.

Biden’s campaign fundraiser, which features former President Barack Obama and late night host Stephen Colbert is expected to raise $25 million and will be at Radio City Music Hall, according to The Associated Press

Other celebrity guests at the New York City fundraiser include singer Lizzo, Broadway star Ben Platt and former President Bill Clinton.
