If you haven't noticed yet, Republicans and Democrats alike in the Senate, House, and other governmental bodies are distancing themselves from Trump. Republican Paul Ryan has made it clear that he doesn't agree with or support Trump and he's far from the only one.

But at the annual Rolling Thunder rally in Washington, D.C. over the Memorial Day weekend, Donald Trump made an appearance and caused quite a stir. Among those in the crowd who were pleased the businessman came out to support the veterans were Democrats and Independents who had previously voted from Clinton and other Democrats, but who now said they were ready to vote for Trump.

"I’m a Democrat and I’m voting for Trump," said one Democrat veteran from West Virginia.

"Trump is a billionaire, and no one is going to buy him," said another Democrat who revealed that he had previously voted for Democrats Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton.

The mainstream media, on the other hand, continue to portray Donald Trump as someone who denies funds to veterans and who can secure only the white, Republican vote. From the comments of veterans at the Rolling Thunder rally, it's clear that's not the case.

An Independent  was asked if he would vote for Trump and he was unequivocal.

"Yes, in part because Hillary Clinton is a big liar. I liked her husband a lot more than I like her," he said.

Trump has a certain trust with the down-to-earth working class, including many veterans on each end of the political spectrum. He's a far cry from Hillary Clinton who continues to show her ineptitude, and whose past mistakes haunt her presidential campaign.

That's not to say that Trump is perfect for the job, however. He has a lot of promises to deliver on and you can be sure that these rough, tough veterans will hold him to those promises if they help him get elected in November.
