WWII Vet Asks Trump For Unusual Favor On Stage — Trump Pauses, Reaches Into Pocket and Makes It Happen

President Donald Trump was addressing the VFW in Kansas City, Missouri, on Tuesday when he got a couple of requests he could not refuse.

Trump invited 94-year-old WWII veteran Sgt. Allen Q. Jones to give some remarks.

And Jones used that opportunity to fulfill a lifelong dream.

From Daily Caller:

“Mr. President, I want to ask you something,” Jones said.

“I have been told that I could never enter the Oval Office in Washington, D.C. I am going to be 95 years of age April 11 of next year. Hopefully, you will allow me to bring my family into the Oval Office to meet you.”

Without missing a beat, Trump leaned in and emphatically said, “Yes. Any time you want!”

People loved it and cheered.

Then Jones tries for one more request.

From Daily Caller:

“One Last thing, Mr. President,” Jones said. “I ask you to autograph this picture personally, because this was taken with you when you were running for election as the President of the United States”

The 94-year-old WWII veteran then handed a photograph to the president to be signed.

“Thank you,” Trump said. “Beautiful. Wow. Let me have this.”

Trump pulled a marker out of his jacket pocket and then signed the picture as Jones looked on with great delight. “You got it. Thank you, Allen,” Trump said handing him back the picture.

Jones responded, “God bless you, Mr. President, and I wish you well in the future!”

He then gave Trump a big hug while clutching his newly autographed picture.

How cool is that?
