Here’s a story you won’t see in the liberal media. President Trump visited wounded American veterans at Walter Reed Hospital this week and even brought a Purple Heart for one of them. Trump did this quietly and with no fanfare because it wasn’t just a photo-op for him. He really cares about the brave men and women who serve.
The Daily Caller called this one of the most powerful images of Trump’s presidency so far:
Sarah Sanders Might Have Just Posted The Most Powerful Image Of Trump’s Presidency
There were no official events on President Trump’s White House schedule Thursday. Many assumed that was in order to have leverage to orchestrate the signing of the Republican tax bill.
So when the president exited the White House unannounced, many reporters we’re puzzled.
Instead of a ceremony for the legislation, Trump spent his day at Walter Reed Hospital.
The hospital is the largest military hospital in the country and is the first stop stateside for many wounded American military members.
One of the most powerful moments of my life watching @POTUS give the Purple Heart to this American Hero. Amazed by the strength and resilience of the men and women in our Armed Forces. pic.twitter.com/AtoaboF4DE

Then Trump had a much more solemn duty.
The president pinned Purple Hearts on members of the military who had been wounded serving their country. The Purple Heart is a honor given to those who are wounded in combat and was established by George Washington.
