A Trump Supporter Left A $450 Tip For A Waitress Who Had Just Come From The Women's March

"Not race. Not gender. Just American."

Jason White, a 37-year-old dentist from Lubbock, Texas, was visiting Washington, D.C. for Donald Trump's inauguration when he and two friends decided to stop into Busboys & Poets, a popular eatery on 14th Street NW.

It was there that White and his companions, all Trump supporters, were greeted by Rosalynd Harris, a 25-year-old waitress who, The Washington Post reported, had just gotten back from the Women's March. The two exchanged small talk about White's visit to the nation's capital.

The conversation must have had quite an impact, because at the end of the meal, White left her a $450 tip: a nod, he told the Post, to the 45th American president.


"You automatically assume if someone supports Trump that they have ideas about you," Harris told the Post. "But [White was] more embracing than even some of my more liberal friends, and there was a real authenticity in our exchange."

White later elaborated on his act of kindness in a Skype interview. 

It's reassuring to know that even in times as divisive and as troubling as these, there are still Americans looking out for and actually listening to each other.
