President Donald Trump absolutely loves the United States military. From the campaign trail to the Oval Office, Trump has shown America’s fighting men and women a level of respect that hasn’t been seen in eight long years.
From vowing to build up America’s military might to promising to overhaul the broken VA system, Trump has shown a willingness to fight for those willing to lay down their lives to defend this nation’s freedoms.
A new report has come out showing just how deep Trump’s feeling for the military is: Reportedly, during his third week in office, Trump met with a class of Green Beret candidates and actually took them inside the Oval Office, Breitbart reported.
“Halfway through the discussion, (Trump) said, ‘Hey — we’re not supposed to do this but follow me,’ and he brought them all into the Oval Office, took a group photograph around the Resolute desk, and then — throwing the schedules into a bit of a tizzy, said, ‘OK, that’s not good enough,’” Deputy Assistant to the President Sebastian Gorka explained.
Given all of the photos of Trump meeting with people in the Oval Office that have come out over the past month, this may not seem like a huge deal, but in fact it truly is.
This was the first time in the Green Beret course’s history that candidates were inside the Oval Office. Nothing like this ever came close to happening under President Barack Obama.
“He said, ‘everybody stand in the corner.’ They all stood in the corner, and one-by-one we took photographs they can take home to their family with each future Green Beret next to the president at the Oval Office desk,” Gorka explained.
What makes this story even more amazing was the fact that Trump kept this Feb. 7 meeting private. No photos have been released, and the Trump-hating press pool didn’t report on it, even though it was announced a day before it occurred.
Trump could have used the opportunity has a publicity stunt, but instead he chose to (attempt) to keep it a private affair. That’s one hallmark of a real leader.
With Trump in the White House, America is now a country where pride in our military, and pride in our nation, can finally come first. This isn’t Obama’s America where we were forced to apologize for who we were. This is an America that salutes the troops and prioritizes the needs of its own citizens. This is an America that is on the way to becoming great again.
