President Trump made a “surprise” appearance in tonight’s Republican National Convention appearing with frontline workers in the East Room of the White House.
The President nor the participants were wearing masks and did not seem to be social distancing.
"These are my friends. These are the incredible workers who helped us so much with the Covid," Trump said.
"These are great, great people. Doctors, nurses, firemen, a policeman. We want to thank you, all you've been incredible and we want to thank you and all the millions of people that you represent," the President continued.
The participants shared their stories and described their line of work, including a registered nurse who praised Trump's leadership.
"I am so in awe of your leadership. Honestly, I know many people have said often interesting things but it takes a true leader to be able to ignore all that stuff and take what is right and not be offended by all the words being said. You really do show that positive spirit to us and as nurses I appreciate that, I'm grateful for," she said.
