President Donald Trump recently traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah, to discuss two national monuments. However, while he was there, he did a few other things and even caused quite the stir when viewers saw what he was doing in front of the camera.
Although President Donald Trump was in Utah to focus on signing proclamations about cutting the sizes of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase Escalante national monuments, he had a few more things on the agenda. However, he was soon to gain a lot of attention when he decided to do something rather “ordinary.”
He had stopped by The Church of Latter-day Saints, LDS Church Bishops’ Central Storehouse in Salt Lake City. The state-of-the-art facility was built by the church to increase their ability to help families in need. However, once Trump entered the building, he caused quite the stir when viewers noticed what he was doing – he was pushing a grocery cart as if he was grocery shopping.
“This is very exciting for me,” Trump said, according to Biz Pac Review. “I know so many people that are in your church, the Latter-day Saints. The job you’ve done is beyond anything you could think of — taking care of people the way you take care of people and the respect that you have all over the world.”
While Trump was there, he discussed several topics with the church leaders. In fact, it is believed that they discussed things like religious liberty and the church’s welfare program. However, few people showed interest in the political aspect of his visit to the storeroom but were far more interested in the fact that he was photographed wheeling a full cart of food around the store.
“Everybody has to eat, even the POTUS. The efforts of all those that feed the needy are to be commended. God bless you,” one person commented, while another pointed out, “Trump is a man; he is not God — but you would think many in the Swamp thought they were. That is why plain, regular folks relate to Trump; Trump realizes he is no better than they.”
One person went a bit deeper and pointed out something rather obvious about Trump, saying, “The ‘everyday’ man presence this billionaire exudes is not like anything I’ve seen before. In spite of the fact that so many are hell-bent on taking him down, barring a catastrophe of his making, I think he’s unbeatable. Eat your heart out lefties.”
Unlike many other elected politicians, Trump puts the needs of average American first. He may be rich, he may be the President of the United States, but he looks out for the little guys. He understands that life takes effort, and it takes hard work to be successful. However, he also knows that there are people who struggle daily to make ends meet and has proven his compassion for them by showing kindness and generosity during many instances in the past.
In fact, he’s selflessly paid off the mortgage of a couple who helped fix a flat tire on his limousine. He generously donated $100,000 to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. To further prove his character, before being the President of the United States was even a consideration for him back in 1986, he heard a sad story about a widowed farmer’s wife whose property was foreclosed on. Instead of going on with his life, he gave her $20,000 of his own money to pay the bank and get her loan up to date, and he did it all while trying to keep his name out of the picture. Clearly, this man is as kind as they come, regardless of what the mainstream media might be saying.
We all are human, and we have all made mistakes. No one is perfect. However, what sets us apart from one another is what we do with our lives, the lessons we learn, and the compassion we show for others. Clearly, Trump isn’t always pocketing his money for himself – he does things to better the world, as God intended for us all to do. In fact, he offered his greatest service as President of the United States without expecting anything in return. That’s nothing short of extraordinary, so it’s no wonder some people are thrown back when they see him doing something ordinary, like pushing a grocery cart.
