An Iraq War veteran got up to give Donald Trump a ringing endorsement yesterday at a rally in South Carolina.
Thomas Andrews told the audience he has served two tours in Iraq and also serves as a Richmond County deputy.
He was invited onstage by the GOP front-runner after breaking up a fight between a protester and a Trump supporter in the crowd, Fox 54 reported.
“This is the only man that’s going to really bring America back,” Andrews said as he stood beside the smiling presidential candidate.
“He understands what it means for me and my people out here, who have been to war.”
The crowd responded by erupting into loud cheers.
“Mr. Trump, I can promise you right now, my department and the departments around me – we need you,” said Andrews.
Ronald Reagan’s former campaign manager Ed Rollins discussed Andrews’ remarks on America’s Newsroom.
The impromptu moment served as a “powerful endorsement” that is telling of voter frustration with the White House, he said.
