In the armed forces, standing for many hours at a time in place can be somewhat fatiguing. For some, it’s downright debilitating.
Trump, president of the common man, has come to recognize the things about the men and women of the military who serve him.
He has not only FULLY enabled the US military to finally combat this nation’s enemies, he also has great respect for those in the armed services.
In a rare moment, the commander-in-chief was captured doing something that presidents don’t regularly do.
After a meeting with Argentine President Mauricio Macri and his wife, Juliana Awada, President Trump escorted the couple out of the White House.
In any case, it’s what Trump did to the Marine at his post outside the door that has people talking.
The Marine had just opened the limousine doors as Argentine President Mauricio Macri and his wife Juliana Awada, said goodbye to the White House on Thursday.
It was at this point that Trump turned toward the Marine saluting outside the front door and patted him on the back.
The Marine didn’t react to Trump’s gesture, and there’s a good reason for that. As indicated by MARSOC operator Sean Conner, whose brother served at Camp David on the presidential detail:
“You’re trained to stand for more than six hours, and you don’t break discipline.”
