A Tennessee woman was facing major car trouble when a good Samaritan at a gas station jump-started her car. That man just so happened to be a members of president Trumps administration, Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke.
Belinda Drew was driving her daughters Buick to work and stopped for gas. Drew pulled off at a gas station near the Smoky Mountains but once she had stopped, the car refused to start.
Drew saw two men standing outside the gas station and asked them for assistance and some jumper cables.
What Drew didnt know was she was asking for help from U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke and U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander for help. Zinke and Alexander were in the area to promote The National Park Restoration Act.
Drew said that the two politicians pulled their SUV next to her broken down car, got under the hood and connected the cables. Drew told the local paper, “The car started right up.”
According to Knox News:
“Drew and the man exchanged pleasantries, the two shook hands and the man handed her what Drew said felt like a silver dollar. Once she was in her car she looked over the medallion and realized who had helped her out. Zinkes name is on one side of the coin, the departments logo on the other. Later that night, when talking to her son, it began to sink in. Her son told her the man was in line to become president.”
