‘It’s what makes America great!’ Donald Trump Jr. caught being a Good Samaritan on an Arizona street

Donald Trump Jr. earned kudos for his quick action when he jumped to the aid of a stranded Arizona motorist.

The oldest son of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was driving through Mesa on Thursday, leaving one campaign event and headed to another, when he came across the stuck driver.

“We were on our way from a rally to another event and Donald Trump Jr. hopped out first to help push this lady’s car off the road, get some water and call for help,” Tyler Bowyer, Maricopa County Republican Party Chairman, posted on Facebook, along with video. “Needless to say, she was pretty surprised to find out it was Donald Trump Jr. pushing her car.”

Bowyer also tweeted out the video and posted a photo of Trump Jr. with a woman, presumably the driver, in front of the car. The video has been re-tweeted over 4,000 times.

“I’ve been around a lot of politicians. Most would just freak out or go around,” Bowyer told The Arizona Republic. “But Don Jr. … before you can blink, he’s out there pushing the car.”

Trump Jr. and Bowyer were riding together when they exited the freeway and saw the Impala stall a couple of cars in front of them, the Arizona Republic reported. Once the car was pushed to safety, they gave the woman every water bottle they had as she waited for assistance.

The woman did not recognize the good Samaritan and was told by others in the group who it was.

“She was just stunned. She was taken aback,” Bowyer said. “She was like, ‘Man, I have to be able to tell people about this.’ So we made him get out and take a picture. And that was it.”

“This was a real act of service that he just naturally did,” Bowyer said. “Politics was on the back end of it. The front end of this was being a good neighbor, being a good American. I was 101 degrees outside, for crying out loud.”

Trump Jr. had just spoken at a rally to support his father on the Arizona State University Tempe campus before the incident.

Twitter users praised Trump Jr. for being a good American and a “class act.”
