Trump puts hat on Marine after wind carries it away
President Trump on Saturday retrieved a Marine’s hat and placed it on the Marine’s head after it blew off amid turbulence from the president’s helicopter.
As Trump approached Marine One, he bent to pick up a white hat from the ground before turning to the Marine. After placing it on the Marine’s head, Trump patted him on the arm.
But the hat immediately flew off the Marine’s head, forcing the president to chase it down as the Marine stood at his post, where he remained until the president boarded.
