The mainstream media would never tout it, but pictures don’t lie – America’s military loves President Trump.

A poll from the Pew research center shows U.S. veterans have a favorable view of Trump’s job so far in the Oval Office.

U.S. veterans helped Trump win the presidency, and they don’t seem to have any regrets. A whopping 98 percent of veterans who say they are Republican approve of the job he’s doing. Only 10 percent of vets who say they are Democrats agree that he’s doing a good job.

Another poll conducted by the Military Times in September revealed that support for the president among active duty troops is also higher than it is from civilians.

Forty-four percent of enlisted troops gave Trump a favorable rating, while only 40 percent of approval numbers came from the general public.

But even those numbers seem low when you see the treatment President Trump gets when he’s on the ground meeting America’s finest.

First lady Melania Trump, who  is often with the president as he greets troops, seems to love and appreciate them just as much as her husband does.

While not everyone appreciates President Trump’s sense of humor, the troops seem to love it, and he’s not afraid to show them his lighter side, like he did when he momentarily ditched his suit jacket for a military one at the Yokota Air base in Japan:

He also loves getting personal with face-to-face greetings and warm handshakes whenever possible.

Military leaders also love Trump for his hands off approach in regard to letting generals do their jobs.  Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend told the Pentagon in September, “I don’t know of a commander in our armed forces who doesn’t appreciate that.”

President Trump has awarded the Medal of Honor to several deserving veterans, including U.S. Army Captain Gary Rose who served in the Vietnam War.

“You faced down the evils of communism, you defended our flag, and you showed the world the unbreakable resolve of the American armed forces,” Trump said of Rose and the other heroes who fought for America and freedom.

And who could forget the resounding applause Trump received when he became the first president-elect to attend the Army-Navy game in December? Cadets in the crowd went absolutely wild with excitement:

OK, so we gave you 11 instead of 10 photos, but that’s how much the troops love President Trump — and vice versa. Don’t forget to check out BPR’s article on the Army-Navy game seen above. The electrifying response from the crowd should not be missed!
