A behind-the-scenes video shows President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump greeting several overjoyed staff at a Pittsburgh hospital following the tragic shooting.
The Trumps, including Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, visited Pittsburgh on Tuesday to show their support for the community after the horrific Synagogue shooting that left 11 dead and several others injured.
The amazing video clip was tweeted by The Daily Caller’s Benny Johnson, who said the video was taken by Pittsburgh resident Sheryl Mascio.
The video shows the president and first lady stopping while touring the hospital, where they were thanking the doctors and nurses for tending to the victims of the horrific shooting.
When the president and first lady walked by, they stopped after hearing several hospital workers call out to them.
“There he is,” one person can be heard saying.
“Thank you, Mr. President,” a person says, followed by another saying, “Thank you, Ivanka.”
Trump and Melania turn around and walk toward the group of workers. The president thanks them for all of their hard work and told them that they are doing a great job.
“Thank you for coming,” another person says. “You’re the best,” another added.
“Can I shake your hand,” one man asks, to which Trump says “You sure can” before walking over to greet them.
“I wanted you to see the President tonight at UPMC in Pittsburgh visiting the survivors of the shooting as the nurses and [doctors] were waiting to see him,” Mascio wrote in her tweet.

The video is especially powerful given many in the media have been implying that Trump is responsible for the tragic shooting.
The narrative has largely been so one-sided, with the media giving far more air time to those opposing Trump than the president’s efforts to console those trying to cope with the tragedy.
When asked about the tragic shooting on Tuesday, CNN’s Don Lemon said “the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right.”
CNN host John Avlon earlier this week exploited the horrific shooting at the synagogue to invoke the Holocaust as a way to attack Trump.
While speaking with Rabbi Jeffrey Myers about the terrible shooting tragedythat occurred at the Tree of Life Synagogue, CNN’s Alisyn Camerota practically begged him to blame the tragic shooting on Trump.
Sadly, most of the media only reports negative stories about Trump rather than anything positive.
The video of the Trumps being greeted by overjoyed hospital workers is amazing, and it has gone viral for all of the right reasons.
