President Donald Trump was speaking at the United States Military Academy at West Point Tuesday, when he read part of his speech thanking the superintendent of the school.

When Trump turned around and saw him, he immediately remembered meeting him and shook his hand.


“Special thanks to West Point Superintendent, Lieutenant General Bob Caslen. Where’s Bob? Where’s Bob?” Trump said.

Trump then turned to West Point Superintendent and Lieutenant general Robert L. Caslen, and shook his hand.

“How do you like it Bob? Bob Caslen, you know, you remember our meeting, right? But I’m glad you did what you did, and you have done a fantastic job. I made the right choice with you,” he added.

“General, you’re a great leader at a legendary institution that has been a source of pride and strength for our country for more than two centuries,” President Trump added. (RELATED: President Trump Just Turned To An Olympic Athlete And Congratulated Her In The Trump-iest Way Possible)
