Their press tour took a strange turn on Tuesday, however, when family adviser Radd Seiger received an unexpected invitation to Washington DC."Radd, who's been looking after us, has a phone call from the White House saying: ‘Could you please come to the White House as soon as possible?'" Tim Dunn, Harry's father, said."We got on a train, and away we went."It was the start of a bizarre trip to visit Donald Trump that plunged the grieving Dunns briefly into the weird world of White House politics, as the US president and his team appeared keen on pulling a reality TV-style stunt on them - by brokering a meeting in front of the press with the woman who killed their child.Dunn, 19, was killed this August in a head-on collision between his motorcycle and a car traveling on the wrong side of the road. The alleged driver of that car, Anne Sacoolas, is the wife of a US intelligence officer; she claimed diplomatic immunity and subsequently fled back to the US.Dunn's parents want Sacoolas to return to the UK and cooperate with investigators.
