Radical Earth Day activists protested against President Trump in DC for his inability to grasp that our world is about to come to an end if he doesn’t force American taxpayers to spend trillions of dollars to fix the man-made global
warming cooling climate change crisis…
Meanwhile in Bethesda, MD, Trump couldn’t have been further away from the constant onslaught of protests by the left against our president and his policies. Just outside of Washington DC, President Trump and our lovely First Lady were spending the day together visiting our courageous wounded warriors at Walter Reed Hospital.
This was Donald Trump’s first visit as president to the armed forces hospital.

Accompanied by his wife, Melania, Trump awarded Army Sergeant First Class Alvaro Barrientos the Purple Heart, the medal given to members of the U.S. military wounded or killed in battle.
Barrientos was injured in Afghanistan on March 17 when an Afghan soldier opened fire inside a base in Helmand province, wounding three U.S. soldiers. Barrientos’s right leg was amputated, according to a White House official.
Watch President Trump award Army Sergeant First Class Alvaro Barrientos the Purple Heart here:
The president put his hand on the sergeant’s shoulder and kissed the sergeant’s wife, Tammy, on the cheek. Then he pinned the Purple Heart to the sergeant’s lapel and clapped him on the back.
“When I heard about this, I wanted to do it myself. … Congratulations, tremendous,” Trump told Barrientos. –Reuters
