“I want to say how grateful I am to Donald Trump for inviting us here, because the easy thing for him to do is to simply ignore that anybody else cares about veterans, and he’s not that kind of person,” Huckabee said, thanking the frontrunner for the invitation.
Trump introduces John Wayne Walding whose story is told in the book No Way Out: A Story of Valor in the Mountains of Afghanistan. Walding, who lost his leg in the Battle of Shok Valley, shares several stories of Trump’s kindness toward himself and other veterans.
Trump went on to say that he does not feel good about turning down money. He explained how he’s turned down millions in campaign donations. “Because my whole life I’ve been greedy, greedy, greedy. I grabbed all the money I could get, I’m so greedy. But now I wanna be greedy for the United States and grab all that money, I’m gonna be greedy for the United States.”
Trump ended the night by announcing that his organization raised over 6 Million dollars for various veteran organizations.
