Class Act: Trump dines with South Korean Military Troops
President Trump continues to show his love and admiration for those that serve in the military on his trip to South Korea.
On Tuesday Trump passed on a fancy traditional lunch and requested to dine with military troops instead.
Trump was joined by the South Korean president Moon Jae-In who also dined with the troops.
The Daily Caller reports:
“I had a choice of having a beautiful, very fancy lunch and I said no, I want to eat with the troops and we ate with the troops,” Trump said about his lunch at Camp Humphreys.
Trump visited the military base instead of the demilitarized zone (DMZ). “It’s becoming a little bit of a cliché, frankly. And that’s why he’s going to be down at Humphreys,” a senior administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told reporters last week.
A Love for Country
The left has viciously tried to smear the president as a hater having no regard for Americans who have lost their loved ones in war.
You may recall recently leftist media outlets twisting the presidents phone call to Myeshia Johnson who lost her husband in Niger.
Johnson claimed the President disrespected her family with his phone call to give his condolences. And Frederica “The Clown” Wilson backed up Johnson’s false claim saying she overheard the conversation and used the woman’s loss as a hit piece on the president.
We know both these women flat out lied to the American public because Trump’s other phones calls to the families of the fallen have told a different story.
Take Trump’s phone call to Natasha De Alencar for example.
“On April 10th, we went to Dover Air Force Base to welcome my husband back home with our whole family. But this time, it was not a celebration,” Natasha De Alencar told CNN.
“My husband celebrated his 37 birthday on April 1 and seven days after his birthday, he was dead,” she said.
“Natasha,” Trump said in the call, filmed by her children and provided to CNN on Thursday night. “I’m so sorry to hear about the whole situation. What a horrible thing … he’s an unbelievable hero and you know all the people that served with him are saying how incredible he was.”
President Trump had researched Staff Sgt. Mark De Alencar and become familiarized with his awards, accomplishments, and family.
Trump talked with the grieving widow about her children, mentioning the couple’s oldest son, who plays college football. Before ending the five-minute conversation, the president asked her to deliver a message to them.
“Tell them their father was a great hero that I respected,” Trump said.
De Alencar then received an open invitation to the White House, anytime she wanted to visit. “If you’re around Washington, you come over and see me in the Oval Office,” he said.
“All you got is memories and having the commander-in-chief call you for five minutes is an important memory,” she said.
In addition is the very rare story of the president inviting military troops to the west wing and gave them a surprise visit to the Oval Office.
According to the Conservative Tribune:
“the 18 Army officers in the Special Forces Qualification Course (AKA: Q-course) paid a visit to the National Security Council. The Deputy Assistant to the President, Sebastian Gorka, made a suggestion that would change all of their lives. He wanted them to meet President Trump himself.
Gorka stated, “Halfway through the discussion, (Trump) said, ‘Hey — we’re not supposed to do this but follow me,’ and he brought them all into the Oval Office, took a group photograph around the Resolute desk, and then — throwing the schedules into a bit of a tizzy, said, ‘OK, that’s not good enough.”
“Trump said, ‘everybody stand in the corner.’ They all stood in the corner, and one-by-one we took photographs they can take home to their family with each future Green Beret next to the president at the Oval Office desk.”
And consider this statement Trump gave at the “A Salute to Our Armed Services” presidential inaugural ball:
“I just want to thank you on behalf of Melania and myself — and really millions and millions of people all over the world for the job you have done,” said the president to servicemen and women in their formal dress uniforms, who burst into cheers and shouts of support throughout Trump’s remarks.
This is the real Donald Trump.
Trump is a man whose heart overflows with such love and admiration for our military and country. So much so that he gave up everything he has accomplished so far in life as a billionaire businessman to serve the American people.
And since taking his seat as commander-in-chief, his actions have only reiterated his love for our military.
