Before his inauguration, Donald Trump arranged to have a patriotic concert at the Lincoln Memorial. A number of celebrities performed, but one of the most moving performances was from Lee Greenwood, who sang his notoriously patriotic song, “God Bless the USA”. And Donald Trump was caught on camera getting really into the music.
Trump was caught on video singing along… and by the looks of it, he was singing along with some serious passion and feeling.
Trump wasn’t just singing along. He was swaying, smiling, bobbing his head… he seemed to really enjoy the performance, and felt the words as he sang them.
It shouldn’t be strange that the president would be caught in such an unashamed patriotic moment. But over the last eight years, we have had a president who is openly hostile to the country, who was caught refusing to place his hand over his heart for the national anthem and who sat in the pews of a “church” for 20 years, whose pastor said we were responsible for 9/11, and called the country “AmeriKKKa”. Trump’s behavior is a nice change.
Trump also, along with Vice President Mike Pence, visited Arlington National Cemetery on Thursday, where they laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns in honor of all the unidentified fallen troops.
As of Friday, Trump is officially president, and it’s about time that the person occupying the Oval Office should a little love for his country.
