According to the Left, President Trump divides everyone.
Also according to the Left, it seems, all Americans hate the President.
Wouldn’t that mean we’re united?
Apparently, some people like Trump — even those who fight at his command, in the United States military.
Subsequently, via Twitter Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shared a “powerful” encounter between the Commander-in-Chief and a serviceman, during the President and First Lady’s surprise visit to a military base in Iraq for Christmas.
As per Sanders’s inspiring tweet, upon a member of the U.S. Army’s meeting with POTUS, he told the Leader of the Free World that he’d rejoined the service because of him.
The President responded, “And I am here because of you.”
Afterward, the soldier gave Sanders a patch from his arm, which reads “Brave Rifles” — a nickname for Fort Hood’s 3rd Cavalry Regiment of the U.S. Army.
Powerful moment – Member of United States Army told the President he came back into the military because of him. And President Trump responded, “And I am here because of you.” I met him after and he gave me the patch from his arm. Incredible. #TrumpTroopsVisit pic.twitter.com/WmQf3b2K8X

Despite the media’s portrayal, Trump, too has touching moments. Had the encounter involved President Obama, it surely would’ve been a featured feel-good story across the mainstream. Thank goodness for Twitter, so conservatives can be privy to such an endearing exchange. And thanks to Sarah Sanders for sharing.
