He has a heart of gold, but the heartwarming stories about Donald Trump’s generosity with everyday Americans are rarely reported about in the media. While discussing tax reform, former Democrat West Virginia Governor Jim Justice brought the crowd to their feet with this heartwarming story about what President Trump did for some Hardees employees when no one was looking.
President Donald Trump’s deviation from his prepared remarks to give a controversial speech about illegal immigration may have been the big story from West Virginia on Thursday.
However, one of the biggest applause lines didn’t come after the president’s comments about illegal immigration or on tax reform, which was his intended topic.
Instead, it came after West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice talked about what the president had done for the “Hardee’s ladies.”
“The last time he was here, I was in the limo with him, and I said, ‘Mr. President, the ladies down at Hardee’s this morning, when I was going through, were out of their minds,’” Justice said.
“They said, ‘Can you please tell him we said hi and we love him and everything else?’”
“He looked at me and he said, ‘You like Hardee’s?’” Justice said to a laugh. “He said, ‘I like McDonald’s.’”
“Then I asked him if he could sign something and give to those ladies,” Justice continued.
“He looked all through the limo, and finally, he pulled out his speech, and he wrote, ‘Hardee’s gals, take care of big Jim, a great guy and great friend — Donald J. Trump.’”
“Now I’m telling you, that’s what kind of man we have in this office,” Justice continued.
‘”And I love him with all my heart, and I’ll support him until the death. He’s a great man.” –CT
