Watch: Trump Applauds Our Veterans in Heartfelt Message

President Trump loves the American people, our soldiers, and out veterans. He has more patriotism and respect in his pinky finger for our troops than Obama has in his entire body.

On Saturday, he released a heartfelt Veterans Day video, applauding our military and thanking the “millions and millions” American veterans who have sacrificed for our country’s freedom.

He said in the video on Twitter, “On this wonderful Veterans Day, I want to express the incredible gratitude of the entire American Nation to the millions and millions of veterans that bravely defended our nation in uniform, and the strong families whose unwavering love and support allowed you to answer the call of duty.”

“We applaud your service, salute your sacrifice,” he continued, “and pay tribute to your profound patriotism and love of our country.”

He also stated that our hardworking service members are the “best role models” for America’s “youngest citizens.”

“America’s veterans are this country’s greatest national treasure,” Trump said, “There’s nothing close. You are the best role models for our youngest citizens, and you are a constant reminder of all that is decent, good and brave.”

“Just as you fulfilled your duty to America, now America must fulfill our duty to all of you,” Trump added, “We must ensure that our veterans are getting the care and support they so richly deserve.”

Trump’s recorded video remarks come as the president wraps up a 12-day Asia trip, his longest foreign trip so far as president.

Vice President Pence spent Saturday with veterans at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., cleaning the memorial in bitter 26-degree weather.

“Did we get the job done? That’s what I’m asking,” Pence said Saturday before taking a group photo with volunteers. “Thanks for all you do for our veterans each and every day.”
