Kirsters Baish| It’s never really a surprise to hear about President Donald Trump going out of his way to show respect to our country’s military. He has made it clear from the very beginning that in his eyes, the men and women who defend our country are truly heroes. No one would argue about Trump’s respect and compassion for the United States military, but if anyone isn’t totally convinced, what he did on his way home from Singapore will change their mind.
Conservative Tribune reports that the White House released a rough copy of the President’s schedule, which showed that our Commander in Chief is planning on visiting military bases in Hawaii and Guam on his way back to the United States after the annual G7 Summit.
The first stop that President Trump has scheduled is to Andersen Air Force Base, which is located in the United States territory, Guam. President Trump is set to spend an hour with our troops on the Pacific island, which was threatened by North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un last year.
Guam’s Pacific Daily News reported that it’s been around 10 months since President Trump showed his support for Guam and its governor, Eddie Calvo. He explained to Calvo that the United States would be backing Guam “a thousand percent.” He also insisted that the United States territory was “safe” from North Korean attacks.
Calvo was thrilled about President Trump’s breakthrough with North Korea.

Breitbart News reports:
The governor of the United States territory of Guam is praising President Donald Trump for meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un in Singapore to broker the start of a nuclear weapons-free Korean Peninsula.
Governor Eddie Calvo issued a statement on Facebook following an introduction.
The statement said, :The agreement between North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and President Trump, while being touted as an action with global implications, will end years of instability in Korea and the Pacific region. The people of Guam know war. Our people – thousands upon thousands of civilians – suffered and died during World War II. We’ve experienced war,” Governor Calvo said. “In 2013 and again last year, we were the target of missile threats. Today, the promise of peace in the region draws closer, and we can breathe easier. This agreement paves the way for peace between the U.S. and North Korea and moves us toward the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. The Territory of Guam is thankful to our President and his stance on peace through strength policy which elevated peace within the Asia Pacific region — this is something we truly are grateful for.”
After leaving the Pacific island, President Trump’s schedule has him at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii. After this stop, he will make his way back home.
This isn’t the first time that President Trump has shown his unwavering support for our country’s military.
Fox Business reported recently on another good deed President Trump followed through on for military spouses:
President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order that aims to expand job opportunities to military spouses across the federal government.
“Today, we take one of many important actions to ensure that you are free to pursue your careers, support your families and continue serving this nation that we all love so much,” Trump said during a speech honoring military mothers and spouses at the White House.
By taking on this jobs initiative, the Trump administration intends on making licensing portable state-to-state for jobs that require it and military families that move a lot.
