President Trump visited wounded veteran soldiers at Walter Reed Medical center last night in Washington DC.
Ahead of his visit, Trump told the press that “we’re just going to wish them a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. We love these people.”
Trump sat for a good five minutes with U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. John Peck and his wife Jessica, discussing the couple’s upcoming holiday plans and thanking him for his service to our country.
In the middle of the visit, Trump looked over to his favorite White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders who had taken it upon herself to go around thanking the veterans herself and taking pictures with them.
Trump also awarded a Purple Heart to 1st Lt. Victor Prato of the 127th Airborne Engineer Battalion for injuries he sustained while deployed in Afghanistan last month.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders was incredibly moved by the experience.
“One of the most powerful moments of my life watching @POTUS give the Purple Heart to this American Hero. Amazed by the strength and resilience of the men and women in our Armed Forces.”

The American people are so grateful to have a president that finally respects our military for the heroes they are.
