President Donald Trump was outside the U.S. capitol building in Washington, D.C. delivering a speech to a massive crowd, when he suddenly reached under his podium, much to the shock of every spectator and security person there. He had spotted who was in the sea of people before him that had gone unnoticed by everyone else there and now we know who this person is and why the president did what he felt he had to do.
The president was delivering a message at the 36th Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service yesterday to honor our country’s fallen police officers and the families of those who lost their heroes in the line of duty. The recognition was long overdue after eight years under the previous administration who demoralized the service and discredited the sacrifice, often recognizing the criminals who killed or were killed by cops instead.
The event yesterday ended on an incredible note last night when for the first time in history, the White House was lit up in blue for Law Enforcement — something Barack Obama refused to do in his two terms in office. However, there was one incident that took place during Trump’s address that’s gone largely unnoticed but deserves all of the attention.
As Trump was speaking, he happened to spot a 6-year-old boy in the crowd. The president departed from his prepared remarks to direct a segment of time to this child instead. The boy’s name is Micah and he’s fatherless now after losing his dad in a gun fight last year during an apprehension gone tragically wrong while on duty in Phoenix, Arizona. What the president did when he saw Micah there was caught on tape and is nothing short of incredible for a number of reasons.
As he spoke of praise for police officers, he set his eyes on this little boy while reaching under his podium and grabbing his personal hat he brought with him to the speech.
“And just to show you, by the way, how much I love our police, I said, oh, I’m going to need a hat because it’s so windy today,” Trump said during his speech while holding the hat he was referring to above his head. “I said, when I got out of here, there’s no way I’m going to put on this hat. So we’ll leave off the hat. And this is for you, Micah. That’s for our beautiful Micah down there,” the president said in his remarks as he tossed his hat to the little boy who rightfully received the special recognition. READ MORE or WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW
