Some Politicians will only approve of the Troops when it is time for a photos op, and then there is Trump. He not only greatly appreciates our military, he back them wholeheartedly. So much so that he has numerous Marines working in the White House with him.
“Not only is Defense Secretary James Mattis a former Marine general, but other top members of Trump’s administration are too, including Trump’s chief of staff, John Kelly, and Trump’s director of the Secret Service, Randolph Alles.”
On Tuesday Trump came out and explained why he felt so strongly about the military.
“Our administration is stacked with Marines because Marines are the kind of people you want at your side and trust me you don’t ever want to be on the other side of a fighting Marine. It’s trouble. it’s painful. The marines are the first into battle and the first to fight. Marines never give up, never give in, never retreat, and never ever surrender.
You are faithful to each other, faithful to your mission, and you are always faithful to the country that you love, the USA. And as your commander and chief, just like every president before me, I have no greater comfort, than knowing I can have absolute faith in you.”

“During his times in the White House, he’s given the armed forces’ senior commanders greater latitude in the war on terror, as well as signed a defense budget bill that included a much-needed raise for the rank and file.”
Trump just proves time and time again that he stands behind our Troops. He spoke out against the disrespectful kneelers in the NFL and purposefully surrounds himself with the brave men and women who are willing to sacrifice it all for the good of America.
