The video below is a great moment that’s very “Trumpian”…President Trump likes to bring up real people to contribute. It’s always fun to watch!
The Veterans of Foreign Wars speech was no exception… President Trump invited VFW Life Member Allan Jones to the stage. Allen is a 94-year old WWII veteran and has been a member of the VFW for over 70 years.

Jones mentioned his brothers who fought and then his wife and children in a very sweet moment. He asked President Trump if he could say a few things and then he asked if he could come to the White House on his 95th birthday. President Trump said it would be an honor.
The VFW Convention audience clearly loved the moment as they love the president’s uplifting speech.
President Trump has done so much for our military in a short amount of time. Military spending is back up so the men in uniform can have the equipment they need.
