n a light moment, Trump retrieved a Marine’s hat that was blown off by the wind before chasing after the cap when it flew off for the second time.
Trump seemed to be in high spirits after he returned home from the G20 summit in Germany, clapping his hands as he approached Marine One in Maryland on Saturday.
While the president was walking towards the aircraft, a Marine who was guarding the helicopter had his hat fly off.
Trump bent over and placed the hat back on the serviceman’s head but the cap went flying once more, sending Trump and his military escort chasing after it.
The clip begins as Trump walks towards the helicopter following his arrival at the Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.
The white hat of a Marine suddenly falls a few feet in front of Trump and he stops mid-stride while he is talking to another uniformed man.
Trump then steps forward and picks the hat off the ground and walks over to the Marine and places the cap on his head, patting the man on the shoulder.
However, the chopper’s blades are making it far too windy, sending the hat flying off again.
Trump chases after the hat but lets the other military man place it squarely on the Marine’s head.
Before Trump boards the helicopter, he pats the Marine once more on the side.
Watch the video below:
It was a light gesture for the president and even CNN commented on the moment.
An anchor said: ‘You got to come watch this. This was actually a light moment. We just wanted to play it for you.
‘He’s trying to right the ship here and help out the Marine who is standing alongside it and can’t move from his position.’
Trump had just returned from his four-day trip to Poland and Germany, for the G20 summit.
Here’s how Twitter reacted:
Trump just picked up that Marine's hat that flew off…that's pretty awesome.
