Waitress overwhelmed by heartwarming note left by Trump supporters

A waitress working in Washington, D.C. received a shockingly generous tip and a kind note on her receipt from men who were in town for President Donald Trump's inauguration.

Rosalynd Harris, who works at Busboys and Poets, told The Washington Post she was beaming with confidence at her job Monday after going to the Women's March on Washington over the weekend.

She said a group of men from west Texas came to the restaurant and began speaking to her.

Harris, who is black, admitted to the post that she was a bit prejudiced to the men, who are white, after they said they were in town supporting Trump.

One of the men, who said he was a dentist, complimented her smile -- and she thought that was going to be the end of their interaction.

When Harris picked up the check after they left, she saw the Trump supporters had left a 450 tip on a $72.60 bill.

On the receipt she found a strikingly kind message, which the restaurant posted to Twitter:

"We may come from different cultures and may disagree on certain issues, but if everyone would share their smile and kindness like your beautiful smile, our country will come together as one people. Not race. Not gender. Just American. God Bless!"

Harris said she was overwhelmed.

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

Harris added that the message was a nice reminder not to make assumptions about people based on their political affiliations.
