On Saturday, the President spoke at the departure of the USNS Comfort from Norfolk, Virginia.
The Naval hospital is headed to New York City to help assist with the Coronavirus pandemic ravaging the state.
President Trump was beaming with pride and said the USNS Comfort is equipped with “12 operating rooms, 1,000 hospital beds, a medical laboratory, a pharmacy…two oxygen producing plants and a helicopter deck which will be used very actively.”
“This great ship behind me is a 70,000 ton message of hope and solidarity to the incredible people of New York,” Trump said, standing in front of the Comfort. “We’re here for you, we’re fighting for you, and we’re with you all the way.”
“It also bears our military’s greatest weapon of all, a crew of nearly 1,200 outstanding members of the United States Navy,” said Trump.
This is what a true leader looks like.
