Phoenix – On Wednesday, President Donald Trump retweeted out a video of two men carrying a WWII veteran to his seat at the Trump rally in Phoenix, Arizona. The audience responded to the three men with chants of “U.S.A., U.S.A.!”
At the beginning of his remarks tonight, @realDonaldTrump recognized 100-year-old Ervin Julian, a Navy veteran of World War II.
So amazing the sacrifices veterans made for this country and the President honors them, and those who still today protect our freedoms. pic.twitter.com/bfQG7BrYoR
