A 94-year-old WWII vet asks President Trump to grant his greatest wish.
President Trump will do anything to ensure our heroes are respected.
Former President Obama, on the other hand, couldn’t be bothered to address the staggering abuse occurring in the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The Obama administration’s negligence and incompetence caused the VA to became a cesspool of corruption, and many of our veterans died while waiting for the healthcare they rightfully earned.
But Trump promised things would be different when he was running for President.
Trump’s campaign focused on making sure this poor treatment of our veterans never happened again. “Our debt to you is eternal,” Trump said. “Yet our politicians have totally failed you.”
Veterans ultimately voted 2-1 for Trump over Hillary, and he has rewarded their trust in him by enacting sweeping reforms to improve and modernize veterans care.
The president recently put his unwavering commitment to our service members on full display; by honoring one of our nation’s heroes in person.
From Western Journal:
“A 94-year-old World War II veteran got the thrill of a lifetime when he was invited on stage by President Donald Trump at the Veterans of Foreign Wars national convention in Kansas City, Missouri, on Tuesday.
After giving special recognition to Sergeant Alan Q. Jones of Pennsylvania from the stage, Trump asked, ‘Should we bring him up?’
The crowd responded enthusiastically.
‘This is one of the highlights of this 94-year-old man,’ Jones said, after the president turned over the microphone to the long-time VFW member.”

Jones asked if he could say a few things while he had the microphone, and the president replied, “I’ve got time.”
Jones then spoke about his four brothers who served alongside him in Word War II, and shared how his eldest brother died in combat in Italy.
In a tearjerking moment, Jones described how he continues to grieve for his brother, telling the crowd that:
“Many times I just wished he could have come back to the land of the free and the home of the brave again.”
This statement clearly moved both the president and the crowd, but Jones quickly made the exchange more lighthearted by asking for a favor.
“I have been told that I could never enter the Oval Office in Washington, D.C. I am going to be 95 years of age April 11 of next year.
Hopefully, you will allow me to bring my family into the Oval Office to meet you.”
The words were barely out of Jones’ mouth before the president answered:
“Yes. Any time you want!”
Jones then asked Trump to sign a photo taken of the two of them taken during the 2016 campaign, and the President happily and immediately complied.
This heartwarming moment shows that President Trump understands that the White House is the People’s House, and that he has the highest regard for our veterans.
America is truly great again, thanks to one man! Wouldn’t you agree?
