The last thing President Trump needs is another photo-op.
Few on the left will agree with me, but I believe he does this out of the goodness of his heart.
It’s easy to understand why progressives feel this way as most of them have no goodness in their hearts and only focus on the negative.
President Donald Trump visited Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland on Saturday to visit with wounded military servicemen and personally award the Purple Heart to an Army sergeant who recently lost half his leg in Afghanistan.
The Purple Heart medal went to Sgt. 1st Class Alvaro Barrientos, who was wounded in action in Afghanistan, according to the Associated Press.
The Purple Heart is awarded to any military service person wounded or killed in combat.
“When I heard about this I wanted to do it myself,” Trump told Barrientos during the brief ceremony. Barrientos’ wife, Tammi, and first lady Melania Trump were also present at the ceremony.
BETHESDA, Md. – President Donald Trump is at Walter Reed National Medical Center for a holiday season visit with wounded service members.
Trump told reporters as he was leaving the White House that he wanted to “say hello to some of the bravest people anywhere in the world.”
A Special “Head’s Up for Trump Haters.”
“We’re Just going to wish them a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year,” he said.
“We love those people.”
The president last visited the military hospital complex near Washington to meet with injured service members and their families in April, proving his visits are not a one time event.
Trump is expected to return to the facility in the new year to undergo a physical.
Thanks my friend, Merry Christmas to you.
