President Donald Trump supporters got everyone’s attention Wednesday when a video surfaced of two men carrying a WWII veteran to his seat ahead of the president’s rally in Phoenix, Arizona.
“This happened at the @realDonaldTrump rally in Phoenix. Lots of teamwork here. These men carrying a World War II veteran to his seat. Got to admit I got a lump in my throat,” a tweet read from news anchor Kari Lake.
In the clip, we see the two men carrying the vet down the stairs of the arena while loud chants of “USA, USA” and applause can be heard in the background from the group gathered at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum to hear Trump speak.
