Trump and Melania Make a Trip To The Hospital Over The Weekend For 1 Amazing Purpose

On a day when most of the mainstream media expected Trump to be puttering around on a golf course, the President pulled one of his surprise moves and instead was found personally awarding a Purple Heart to an Army sergeant Saturday.

President Trump and First Lady Melania met with Sgt. First Class Alvaro Barrientos and his wife at the Walter Reed National Military Center to personally pinned the medal on one of our Nations Heros.

Barrientos’s right leg was amputated below the knee after he was injured in March in Afghanistan.

“When I heard about this, I wanted to do it myself,” Trump said. “Congratulations on behalf of Melania and myself and the entire nation. Tremendous, tremendous job, congratulations.”

Trump even stuck around after the ceremony and toured the facility while visiting with other service members for about 90 minutes.

This is how our service members should be treated and recognized. No Obama seeking a photo op here. Trump went without even announcing it and that is why we have respect for him on a level we never had for Obama.

What do you think of the Presidents unannounced visit to this Combat Veteran? Let us know in the comments and as always…share, share, share!!!!
