Dorfman said that when he shook Trump’s hand and gave him the medal, they had a very “genuine” moment.

Lee asked Dorfman about Trump’s controversial remark upon receiving the medal: “I always wanted to get the Purple Heart. This was much easier.”

“He took it in the manner in which I gave is,” Dorfman said, adding that Trump wasn’t trying to be offensive with his comment.

Why do you believe in him? Lee asked.

“I just think he’d make a good commander-in-chief,” Dorfman said. “I like what he says.”
