President Donald Trump was hailed for picking up a Marine’s hat at Andrews Airforce Base after the wind blew it off his head. (Video below)
The video of Trump boarding Marine One after returning from the G20 Summit in Germany shows the president abruptly stop and go to retrieve the hat belonging to the Marine standing next to the aircraft.
The president tried to put the hat back on while patting the service member on his shoulder but the wind blew it away again – and then Trump chased the hat again!
Ultimately officials got hold of the hat and it was eventually returned to its proper place.
Think Obama would do that?

Notable conservatives were quick to give kudos to Trump for his gesture, observes Newsweek. In a tweet accompanied by a heart symbol and an American flag symbol, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said: “Thank you President Donald J. Trump.”
Also on Twitter, Chuck Woolery, former host of television’s “Love Connection,” declared: “NOT AT ALL SURPRISED IT’S WHO HE IS.”
On Fox News, Tammy Bruce used the video to compare Trump favorably to former President Barack Obama. She pointed to a 2013 outdoor news conference in which a Marine held an umbrella over Obama’s head while it rained. “President Trump Picks Up Marine’s Hat… Obama Had Marines Hold Umbrellas,” Bruce tweeted.
