Trump Really Did This

Trump Really Did This

It was a surreal moment during the Trump campaign, and one that probably won’t be reported by the main stream media.

Trump says he wants to support America’s Veterans and by this video, he is a man of his word.

Monday, Donald Trump invited the Washington Press corps to the Trump International Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue, near the White House, to say that he was coming to Washington one way or the other. The hotel is being refurbished from the city’s historic Old Post Office Building and boasts the biggest ballroom in Washington.

According to the Washington Times, when hands went up from reporters gathered in the cavernous atrium where the hotel lobby was being built, Mr. Trump called on Alicia Watkins.

Ms. Watkins, 38, a former Air Force staff sergeant who survived the 9/11 attack on the Pentagon and served in Iraq and Afghanistan, was at the press conference as a freelance writer working on an article about jobs for veterans.

She briefly described her situation and complimented Mr. Trump’s stance of expanding employment opportunities for veterans, and then asked if the hotel would be part of a jobs program.

“We are doing some of that. What are you looking for, what kind of position,” Mr. Trump asked, and then invited her to come to the podium.

“If we can make a good deal on the salary, she’s going to probably have this job,” said the real estate tycoon.

Asked why he did the on-the-spot job interview, Mr. Trump said that he “felt good about her.”

“It’s a gut instinct,” he said. “I have instincts about people.”

The rest of the press conference ricocheted from Mr. Trump predicting he would secure the GOP nomination to downplaying the Republican establishment opposition to his candidacy to blaming professional left-wing agitators for inciting violence at his campaign rallies.

He then led a tour of the massive ballroom that was still under construction, fielding questions from a crush of reporters.
