WASHINGTON — President Trump made a shock look throughout the 2020 Republican Nationwide Conference kick-off on Monday, interviewing frontline workers from the East Room at the White House.
Trump met with a half a dozen essential workers, together with a truck driver, police officer, postal service worker, and several other nurses — lots of them who had been contaminated with the coronavirus.
“I need to thanks all very a lot. It’s an honor to have you ever at the White House,” Trump mentioned.
“You characterize an unimaginable group of individuals and we love you all,” he mentioned.
The video confirmed Trump making small speak with the workers and asking them about their professions.
“I like the truckers, you recognize they’re on my aspect. I believe all of them, frankly, just about all of them,” the president mentioned after one truck driver launched himself.
One nurse informed Trump she was “in awe of his management,” whereas the president lavished reward on a postal employee as he continues blocking US Postal Service funding over mail-in ballots which he claims are fraudulent.
“We’re taking excellent care of our postal workers. That I can inform you. We’re not eliminating our postal workers,” he mentioned.
“I need to thanks very a lot and thank everyone in that complete, lovely postal system. We recognize it.”
The president earlier Monday flew to Charlotte, NC to personally thank delegates at a subdued conference heart after the occasion was moved fully on-line amid the pandemic.
Not like Biden who appeared on the remaining night time of final week’s Democratic conference, Trump is predicted to take heart stage and converse at every night time of the RNC.
