“He asked me if I wanted it back and I said, ‘no!'”

The veteran who gave Donald Trump his Purple Heart medal during a campaign rally in Ashburn, Virginia, on Tuesday joined Jenna Lee on “Happening Now” to explain his gesture.

Retired Lt. Col. Louis Dorfman said that he gave Trump his medal because he wants the Republican nominee to remember all the people who have fought and died for our country.

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.”
