COMMANDER IN CHIEF SHOWS WHY HE IS RESPECTED BY THE MILITARY …
Hell must have froze over the weekend as CNN actually provided something positive of President Donald J. Trump. While boarding Marine One, the Commander in Chief stopped and took the opportunity to retrieve a Marine’s hat that had blown off his head. Not one, but twice President Trump retrieved the Marine’s hat. A marine standing at attention can obviously not move from his post. The president realized that and helped him out. This is not a light moment as CNN would have you believe but instead an incredible optic from a president who is very proud of the men and women he serves as their Commander in Chief.
On his way back from Germany while getting onto Marine One, President Donald Trump did something that I have never seen any other president do in the past.
As President Trump approached Marine One, one of the Marines who stands guard at the door and salutes the president when he boards and leaves the helicopter had his cover (military lingo for hat) blown off.
Sticking to his training, the Marine refused to break his position of attention and did not attempt to retrieve his cover.
This is yet another way how Trump is making America great again. Respecting and honoring the military. Remember Barack Obama’s coffee cup salute to the marines getting off Marine One? Just how insulting could a president possibly be? Yes, I would say there is quite a different amount of respect in the White House today for our men and woman of the military and they know it.
