Donald Trump met Trump campaign worker and FedEx courier Shane Bouvet the night before the president's inauguration and gave him $10,000, according to The Washington Post.

"This is the greatest guy," Trump said about Bouvet, a single father who worked nights and volunteered during the day for Trump's campaign. The president read a profile of Bouvet in The Post Wednesday and arranged to meet him.

The Stonington, Ill. single father worked on Trump's social media campaign in Illinois, which earned him an invitation to the Great American Inaugural Ball at MGM National Harbor.

According to the Wednesday Post story, a friend bought Bouvet a suit for the event.

The Post's Friday story reported that Bouvet met with Trump, Melania Trump, and advisers Reince Priebus and Stephen Bannon in a holding room at Thursday night's pre-inauguration concert at the Lincoln Memorial.

The then-incoming president decided to call Bouvet's father Don, who is suffering from cancer, the Post reported.

"Hey, Don, you have a great name," Trump said to the father, then added, "You have a good boy."

After signing an autograph for Bouvet's 4-year-old son, the president asked if he was still together with the boy's mother. When Bouvet said that he was not, Trump said, "That happens."

Trump looked at the autographs he had signed and told Bouvet, "After that, she'll have you back. You'll be a great celebrity."

Then the president told an aide to write Bouvet a check for $10,000 to pay for his father's chemotherapy.

In tears after he left the holding room, Bouvet asked The Post, "Did that just happen?"

"He told me I would never have to worry again," Bouvet told WAND-TV
