Senator Rand Paul revealed poignantly how he met President Trump and the generosity of America’s 45th President while speaking at the RNC on Tuesday.
According to The Daily Caller:
In Paul’s RNC speech, he said the first time he met Trump he offered to help Paul with several medical trips. Paul was a doctor at the time. Paul said the two trips were to Guatemala and Haiti to perform charity eye surgeries on those in need. The Kentucky Republican also said that although Trump and him do not agree on everything, there is way more on which they agree than disagree.
“Donald Trump and I met many years ago, before he was running for anything. When I first met him, I recall being struck by how down to earth he was. He seemed like just a normal guy. OK, a normal guy with his own plane and helicopter. I was planning a medical mission to Guatemala to perform charity eye surgeries. We needed money to fund the trip. Donald Trump offered to help, and immediately came through for us and for those kids,” Paul said.
“Not only did he support my medical mission to Guatemala but he also contributed to another mission trip to Haiti a year later. We performed hundreds of surgeries in both countries. Nothing is more beautiful to me in this world than removing the bandages from a person’s eyes, and watching them as they see their loved ones again. Donald Trump helped me make that happen,” Paul continued.
“A few years later, we were opponents, both running for president. We all know how that turned out. I’m proud of the job Donald Trump has done as president. I don’t always agree with him, but our occasional policy differences are far outweighed by our significant agreements,” Paul added.
Rand Paul also stated that President Trump is the first president in a generation who wants to end wars instead of start wars.
