Kirsters Baish| If Donald Trump has been clear about one thing since his run in the 2016 presidential election, it’s that he has a ton of respect for the men and women who serve our country and our communities. From policemen to members of our military, Trump honors Americans in uniform.
Recall back to an incident that BizPac Review reported on in May. President Donald Trump was leaving an illegal immigration forum in Bethpage, New York, where the island has seen a massive amount of violence committed by the violent MS-13 gang. During the meeting, Trump paid tributes to families who have lost their loved ones to the brutal gang.
The thing that people were really talking about was the fact that a group of firemen were standing and saluting President Trump in their full turnouts. They were wearing boots, fire helmets, and jackets.
As you can see, the President was happy to stop his motorcade and salute the firemen right back, showing his respect. The firemen can be seen saluting as multiple vehicles drive by. The presidential limo showed up and pulled to a stop. Multiple people could be seen exiting the limousine. Then, President Trump could be seen getting out of the limo.
Cheers broke out as the President made his way over to the firemen. He signaled to the men, who came over to him and they shared a warm greeting.
“Thank you, thank you,” the President said as he shook all of the firemen’s hands.
“That’s awesome!” one of the firefighters was heard saying.
YouTube users were thrilled with the President’s attention to our men and women in uniform.
“Best president ever!” one user wrote.
“President Trump…..a man for the people. He loves America and he loves her people,” another user said.
“And Obama walked off air force 1 without even saluting the soldiers protecting him!” another stated.

Keep in mind that full firefighter turnout gear isn’t exactly a) light or b) cool. May isn’t the coolest month in New York, either. For these guys to be out in the street with their full gear on says a lot about how they feel about the president.
Then again, the president has said a lot about how he feels about them. Just this past weekend, Trump told an Ohio rally audience that his administration is “standing up for the heroes who protect our country.”
