At a Governor’s Dinner at the White House, on February 26th, President Donald Trump announced his intentions of “rebuilding” the nation’s weakened military.
In order to do that he plans to increase shipbuilding, military aircraft, troop sizes. The President also plans on increasing the defense spending by 10 percent, making it 54 billion dollars.
The Obama-era policies have weakened the military’s strength and it’s not a surprise that 60 percent of all military personnel believes that he is responsible for making America less safe.
Luckily, President Trump is looking to change that.
He has always shown that he is a great fan of the military and he’s given them a great deal of respect during his one year of presidency.
Just recently, he shared some of that admiration when a class of Green Beret candidates paid a visit to the White House.
According to the Conservative Tribune:
The 18 Army officers in the Special Forces Qualification Course, or “Q-course were visiting the National Security Council, when Deputy Assistant to the President Sebastian Gorka suggested they meet the President.
“Halfway through the discussion, (Trump) said, ‘Hey — we’re not supposed to do this but follow me,’ and he brought them all into the Oval Office, took a group photograph around the Resolute desk, and then — throwing the schedules into a bit of a tizzy, said, ‘OK, that’s not good enough,’” Deputy Assistant to the President Sebastian Gorka explained.
The report continued saying that this may not look like that big of a deal, but it really is. Reportedly, this was the first time in history that candidates of the Green Beret were inside the Oval Office.
Sebastian Gorka said “They all stood in the corner, and one-by-one we took photographs they can take home to their family with each future Green Beret next to the president at the Oval Office desk. :
Nothing even close, ever happened under President Obama.
And the fact that President Trump kept this meeting private, sharing no photos or reports about it makes it even more amazing.
Instead of using this as an opportunity to get some publicity, he decided to keep the experience private, which shows the kind of leader he is.
Gorka said “That’s how much he loves our soldiers — our warriors.”
He mentioned the meeting when he made comments on a panel at the 2017 Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday, when he said that under Obama, they “wouldn’t have even gotten into the West Wing.”
And it’s not just the military that receives the benefits from President Trump being in the White House. Soon the rest of the nation will witness Trump’s contribution, as he Makes America Great Again.
