President Trump was wearing one heck of a military outfit as he made remarks aboard the USS Gerald R. Ford in Newport News, Va., Thursday.
“They just gave me this beautiful jacket,” Trump said as he stepped up to the microphone. “They said, ‘Please take this home.’ I said let me wear it. This is a special day. We’re wearing this. This is a great looking hat.”
“American sailors are the best war-fighting sailors anywhere in the world, and it’s not even close,” he continued. “The proud dignity of this ship is a fitting tribute to Gerald Ford. This is American craftsmanship at its biggest and its best. ”
“Americans workers are the greatest.”
General Mattis accompanied the president on his trip.
“We will give the men and women of America’s armed services the resources you need to keep us safe,” Trump said. “This great aircraft carrier provides essential capabilities to keep us safe from terrorism.”
