Trump Praises WWII Veteran Carried to Seat at Phoenix Rally

President Trump kicked off his Phoenix Rally Wednesday night by paying tribute to a 100-year-old World War II veteran who was carried into the rally by two Trump supporters.

“It’s all over TV that the folks here tonight have helped a great World War II veteran into the arena. I don’t know if he knows it, but he’s, right now, the hottest celebrity in the world,” Trump said. “He might even be hotter than Trump, right now, I have to say.”

“He’s all over television. Even ‘fake news CNN’ had him on, but they say he is a legitimate great hero, a veteran of World War II, Irvin Julian,” Trump continued.

The heartwarming video shared on Twitter by an Arizona reporter ahead of the rally showed two men carrying Julian down a flight of stairs at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum as the crowd loudly chanted, “USA! USA! USA!”

Viewed by millions and counting, the video went viral and was retweeted by the president with the message: “I AM ON MY WAY, SEE YOU SOON!”

Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., presented the veteran and the men who helped him with Trump campaign “Make America Great Again” hats during the rally.

“I asked my son Don to get a couple of hats and get some things and give them to Ervin right now and I want to thank you, really, that’s a great honor and thank you for the great job you’ve done, an American patriot, thank you very much,” Trump said.

Trump held a rally in Phoenix, the same time the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates was jabbing it out on the debate stage in Nevada.
