Last week, President Donald Trump was at the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany where he had his first face to face meeting with Vladimir Putin. There was a series of contentious meetings and encounters with the various leaders of the world concerning the mythical Climate Change, but Trump didn’t budge. Now, President Trump has returned home to get back to work for the American people once again. However, it was what happened as Trump stepped on to Marine-One at Andrews Joint Airbase that has the internet on fire.
President Trump has been the biggest advocate for our nation’s military which is a refreshing change from Barack Obama. How could any of us forget the time that Obama half saluted a U.S. Marine standing guard at Marine One with a latte in hand?
Or, how about the time that Barack Obama couldn’t be bothered to get off his cellphone to salute the Marines properly.
Of course, that did not go over well with members of military both past and present. Thankfully, those awful days are behind us, and we have a president that respects our military heroes and we have the video to prove it.
President Trump approached Marine One at Andrews Air Force Base after returning home from Europe yesterday. And, as he was about to climb the ramp to Marine One, he noticed that one Marine standing guard did not have his hat atop his head.
President Trump then saw the hat on the ground and bent down to pick it up. Trump then went over to the Marine and placed it back on top of his head. President Trump then tapped the Marine on the shoulder, and the Marine never flinched.
The video can be seen below.
It was a light moment caught on camera and even CNN had to take notice of the amazing gesture. According to Daily Mail, an anchor said: ‘You got to come watch this. This was actually a light moment. We just wanted to play it for you.
‘He’s trying to right the ship here and help out the Marine who is standing alongside it and can’t move from his position.’
Here is more from The Daily Caller:
While boarding Marine One at Joint Base Andrews on Saturday night, President Trump stopped twice to pick up a Marine’s dress hat that had been blown away by the wind.
Trump arrived at Joint Base Andrews following the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany, where he had his first face-to-face meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
While heading toward the Marine One helicopter, Trump noticed that one Marine had lost his dress hat to the wind.
Trump picked up the hat just in front of the steps to the helicopter and placed it back on the Marine’s head while giving him a couple of affectionate pats on his arm.
The wind blew the hat off of the Marine’s head again, and Trump once again veered off course to pick it up, this time handing the hat to his Air Force escort.
The Marine skillfully remained at attention during the entire exchange.
Of course, this entire exchange went immediately viral, and it is easy to see why. This more than just an act for President Trump since this is actually his character and indicative of the man himself.
Here are some of the responses of those on Twitter.
So incredibly thankful that this man is my President! 🙏☺️

People also said this was a far cry from how Obama would have handled the situation if he was still in office.
Traitor Osama would never have such appreciation for our Marines or any Service members! #MAGA🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Let us take another walk down memory lane, shall we? How about the time that Barack Obama had a Marine hold an umbrella over his head while it rained? Guess what? The internet remembers.
A Commander-in-Chief that loves and respects the military.

NO comparison! The military, actually all of us, were "beneath" him. 🙄

These people hit the nail on the head if you ask me.
President Trump is doing all that he can to bring honor and respect back to the office of the president and America. For too long we witnessed Barack Obama drag our military and the office of the president through the mud with his treasonous policies. If Obama was not bowing to Saudi Arabian leaders he was apologizing to the world for America being great.
Never in my lifetime was I more ashamed of a president than I was when Barack Obama was in office. Obama’s goal was to cripple our country and to allow the New World to be implemented in our great country. President Trump is not about to allow that to happen and is putting America’s best interests first.
For example, during the G20 Summit meeting when all of the other countries chose to wear a global pin, Trump opted to wear the American flag on his lapel. While many people do not think much of this small gesture of change to the status quo, but to all of us conservatives, this is a deeply symbolic one.
President Trump promised during his campaign that he would reject the push for globalism and would make our military strong again. It appears that he is keeping those promises and we are on the right track to making America great again.
SHARE IF YOU LOVE OUR PRESIDENT AND HIS RESPECT FOR OUR MILITARY!
