President Donald Trump is always respectful towards our military, praising them every chance that he gets. However, when he climbed aboard the USS Gerald R. Ford in Newport News, Virginia, onlookers were left shocked by what they saw him wearing.
Although the left likes to portray Donald Trump as an unqualified man who doesn’t deserve the presidency, Trump has done nothing other than proved them wrong every day since his inauguration. In fact, during his recent visit to the USS Gerald R. Ford, he left everyone shocked by what he was seen wearing.
The Navy jacket and hat in the above photo wasn’t President Trump’s idea, but he did wear them proudly. He was given the items upon his arrival by the sailors on the ship.
“They just gave me this beautiful jacket,” Trump said as he stepped up to the microphone, according to Daily Caller. “They said, ‘Please take this home.’ I said let me wear it. This is a special day. We’re wearing this. This is a great looking hat.”
Of course, Trump couldn’t leave without showing his appreciation for the sailors in the American Navy. “American sailors are the best war-fighting sailors anywhere in the world, and it’s not even close. The proud dignity of this ship is a fitting tribute to Gerald Ford. This is American craftsmanship at its biggest and its best.” He continued, “We will give the men and women of America’s armed services the resources you need to keep us safe. This great aircraft carrier provides essential capabilities to keep us safe from terrorism.”
In a mere two months, Donald Trump has gained more respect from members of our military than Barack Obama was given throughout his entire eight years as president. Not only was he gifted with these items out of respect, but they gave it to him solely because they know he has their back for the next four years.
Our men and women in the military deserve more respect than anyone in our nation. After Obama’s abysmal leadership, it’s refreshing to have a Commander-in-Chief who loves his country and those who serve to protect it, and Trump isn’t afraid to show it. A president can’t get any more American than that.
