President Donald Trump spent Thursday afternoon visiting wounded members of the armed forces prior to leaving for his Christmas vacation.
“I’m heading over right now to Walter Reed Military Medical Center to say hello to some of the bravest people anywhere in the world,” Trump said. “They’re great people. … We’ll be over there for a while, but we’re just going to wish them a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year, and we love those people.”
Congress is still in session, as they are working on a government funding resolution to prevent the government from shutting down before Christmas. Trump is scheduled to spend Christmas with his family at his Mar-a-Lago club.
I’m sure that these troops and veterans appreciate the visit from our nation’s leader during their time of healing, and during this beautiful holiday season.
