A couple in Chicago decided to invite President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania to their wedding. As the leader of the free world, Trump would probably not have been able to attend. The couple understood this but decided to send an invitation anyway. They were definitely not expecting what happened next when an unexpected surprise showed up on their doorstep.
Once upon a time, the average American had greater access to the President of the United States. It wasn’t uncommon for them to be able to actually visit the President personally. That was a long time ago. These days, access to the POTUS is extremely limited. His busy schedule prevents him from seeing just anyone. Plus, there are security concerns that make it even harder for an everyday American to see him.
That doesn’t stop numerous people from sending letters and messages to the White House. Americans of all stripes want to connect with the Commander-in-Chief. They reach out, not necessarily sure if the President even gets their letters. Brianna and Timothy Dargert understood this. As their big day was approaching, they knew that President Trump would not be able to attend.
They sent an invitation anyway. As admirers of Donald Trump, they at least wanted to send an invite as a sign of respect for him and what he’s done for the country. They thought that would be the end of it. Instead, the received something very special in the mail. A personalized letter, signed by Donald and Melania!
A suburban Chicago couple was not surprised that President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were not able to attend their 2017 wedding.
However, Brianna and Timothy Dargert of Orland Park decided to mail an invitation to the White House anyway. The couple was married in May, 2017.
Months later, a surprise came in the mail: a congratulatory letter signed by Mr. and Mrs. Trump. It read: “We join your family and friends in celebrating this joyous occasion and your love and commitment to one another. May your hearts grow fonder and your love deeper each day, and may God continue to bless your life together.”
“We both admire the President greatly,” the couple wrote in an email to Fox 32 News, “and to receive something from him personally completely touched our hearts. It is wonderful to see that he truly cares about the American people!” [Source: Fox News]

This is not the first time we’ve heard about the President doing something like this. Despite the pressures he faces — along with the constant attacks from the left — President Trump enjoys showing kindness to individuals. When he visited Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico after the hurricanes, people were stunned by the personal attention he gave to citizens.
Often he’ll respond to a letter from an everyday citizen with a personal message. In the past, he’s offered condolences, encouragement, and support to those who reached out to him. Although he does not have the time to connect with everyone personally, there is a trend for him to make the time to do so, when he has the chance.
Throughout the campaign and in office, Donald Trump would stop and thank the servicemen who escort him. He’ll hold up a flight just to shake each of their hands and say hello. This was in stark contrast to his rivals. Bernie Sanders showed utter contempt to the military and police. Hillary Clinton acted like they were invisible.
Time and again, Trump shows he cares about people. The media try to smear him as some kind of bully. They want you to believe that he is an egoist who doesn’t care about the “little man.” That couldn’t be further from the truth. Donald Trump ran for office because he cares about Americans. Moments like this prove that in a very special way.
Let’s hope more people hear about this story. They should know the kind of man who is leading our country.
