President Trump held a packed rally on Wednesday night in Phoenix, Arizona where thousands gathered to show their support and hear him speak on the upcoming election.
Just before the rally officially started, cameras panned over to a crowd of men who had gathered around a 100-year-old Navy Veteran who fought in World War II. The men were carrying him to a front row seat.
When Trump saw what was happening he couldn’t believe his eyes. He was so honored that this man had come out to support him.
“I don’t know if he knows it but he’s, right now, the hottest celebrity in the world. He might even be hotter than Trump right now, I have to say.”
Via AZ Central:
“The man’s name is Ervin Julian, according to a tweet from Tim Murtaugh, the communication director for Trump’s reelection campaign.
Various videos of the interaction went viral on social media, garnering tens of thousands of likes and retweets.
One video, posted by Rafael Gutierrez and shared with The Arizona Republic, showed people taking pictures and videos and applauding as the men walked by.
“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.””
