Trump STUNS Everyone by Cancelling Congressional Picnic and Donating the Food to Americans Who DESERVE It

President Trump never misses an opportunity to put Americans FIRST.

While Democrats are frothing at the mouth over illegals, our America First President is focusing on legal citizens of this country.

And nowhere did he show that love and support more than when he donated the food from the recently canceled congressional picnic to needy vets at Walter Reed Hospital.

As the immigration debacle looms large over the halls of Congress, President Donald Trump decided to scrap the lawmakers’ annual congressional picnic at the White House because it just didn’t feel “right.”

“I was just walking over to the Oval Office and I said, ‘You know, it doesn’t feel right to have a picnic for Congress when we’re working on doing something very important,’” Trump said Wednesday, according to Politico. “It didn’t feel exactly right to me.”

The president made the abrupt decision as his administration was taking heat for a controversial “zero tolerance” immigration policy that resulted in families being separated at the United States’ southern border. Trump ultimately halted the practice by signing an executive order midweek.

So where is all the food going?

Because Trump’s cancellation came at the last minute, the food — ribeye steaks, spinach, coleslaw, black beans, quinoa, and pies — was already being prepared.

So since the food is already made, it’s going to a great group of people.

All the food will be served Friday for lunch at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, according to a report from Bloomberg News. The food will be given to patients, caregivers, and employees at the Warrior and Family Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

“All perishables donated to Walter Reed. Non perishables to be repurposed for future events,” Stephanie Grisham, spokeswoman for first lady Melania Trump, said.
