Trump called the woman forward and asked her about her experience after she asked whether his new hotel in the District of Columbia would hire veterans.

"Here's what I'm going to do, stand right over here," he said to the woman.

"If we can make a good deal in the salary, she's going to probably have a job."

When asked why he decided to take the risk to promise a job to someone he did not know, Trump said that he "felt good about her."

"I have a gut instinct. We are allowed to have that," he said as the woman smiled and teared up.

Trump held the event at the Old Post Office Pavilion, which he is transforming into a luxury hotel that's due to open in September.
