President Trump sported a new hat supporting Marine Helicopter Squadron One during remarks in Virginia.
According to a White House transcript of Dec. 15 remarks made at the Marine Corps Air Facility, Trump explained his white hat, which had the words “Presidential Helicopter Squadron” written on it. The Marine Corps Air Facility is the home base for Marine Helicopter Squadron One, the helicopter squadron that handles transporting U.S. presidents and other key government officials, UPI reports.
“So they gave me this hat. It says: ‘Presidential Helicopter Squadron.’ Would you wear it? Now, no other president would do this. But I will, because I’m proud of you,” Trump said during his remarks.
“I want to congratulate — I know the talent. I’ve had many helicopters,” continued Trump. “You know, I’m very spoiled; I’ve had helicopters. And we ordered a couple of big, beautiful new ones. You know about that, right? They paid a lot more than I would have paid, and I would have had them even better, but we won’t talk about that. They paid a lot of money.”
During his speech, the president mentioned that his chief of staff, John F. Kelly, is a decorated Marine.
“Well, it is great to be here, surrounded by the Marines. You know, I have a four-star Marine. We just had to get it right. So I picked a four-star Marine. Could have picked a lot [of] people. Everybody wants to be chief of staff, right? But I had to go to the Marines,” he said.
Many readers applauded Trump for outwardly supporting and showing appreciation for Marine One.
“How can people so cruel to attack President Trump considering his working so hard for the American people for free and love this country and our military, left his billionaire life style just to get muck and slander. Very sad. Sir thank you and may God bless you and your family and we pray that God will keep you safe and the wisdom to do the right thing,” one American Patriot Nation commented on the site’s Facebook page.
“I don’t hate him!!! I wish more presidents had the b***s Trump has. And he’s pegged everything right about fake news, and now we are starting to see just how much fake government we have!!! Drain the swamp,” another wrote.
“Amen they need to be on knees thanking God he sent us the only person to make America great again,all the attacks on him and Family need to stop now. MERRY Christmas Trump and Family THANKS for all you are doing and pray daily for his leadership through all you endure love y’all,” another added.
