A Vietnam veteran was captured crying on President Donald Trump’s shoulder after the president gave a speech in De Nang, Vietnam. Trump has been in southern Asia for more than a week on a 12-day trip.
According to Conservative Tribune, Trump’s speech, commemorating Veterans Day, honored our nation’s great veterans. Trump also signed a proclamation, “Commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War.”
During the powerful speech, Trump invited several of the veterans who were standing behind him to give remarks, according to a transcript from WhiteHouse.gov.
One veteran named Mr. Morgan came up to the podium and began weeping with thankfulness at the president’s remarks and support.
“Mr. President, from my heart, thank you for your support of the military, and it’s an honor to be here as one of seven Vietnam veterans representing the 58,000 heroes who never made it home,” Morgan said.
After his remark, Trump embraced Morgan.
Watch the touching exchange below:
“Our veterans are a national treasure, and I thank them all for their service, sacrifice, and patriotism,” Trump said during his remarks.
“To each of you with me today, you are the heroes who fulfill your duty to our nation. And each of you, under the most difficult conditions, did what you had to do, and you did it well.”
On the campaign trail, and in the Oval Office, Trump has made it a priority to honor America’s veterans and ensure they get the respect and care they deserve.
The Trump administration is working hard to reform the Veterans Administration to weed out problems that have plagued the system and cost lives for years.
“Dr. Shulkin has done an amazing job with choice and accountability and so many other things that we are doing and in the process of doing. The Veterans Administration is a whole different place,” Trump said, referring to Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin.
Instead of correcting the United States military and apologizing for the United States, Trump has embraced our history and is proud to support those who served.
One of America’s greatest strengths is her military, and Trump is determined to make sure our soldiers have the best equipment and best support.
President Trump has a different approach when it comes to leading the country, but so far we’ve witnessed that he is doing a good job. The respect that he received from the foreign leaders during his trip is what this country needs and want to see.
