Former President Donald Trump introduced at a Georgia rally on Saturday the U.S. soldier who famously pulled a sick Afghan baby over a wall at the Kabul airport during President Joe Biden’s botched military pullout from the nation.
“And we’re also honored to be joined by one of the Marines who bravely served in Kabul during the withdrawal and helped evacuate children… over the airport wall… He did a great job,” Trump said to introduce Lcpl. Hunter Clark during the rally, which drew 20,000 people.
Trump also reserved 13 seats at the front of the rally for the 13 service members killed in a suicide bombing at a gate of the airport during the evacuation attempts.
The video of Clark lifting the baby over the wall on August 19 went viral at the time. Clark said at the rally that the act was “definitely probably one of the greatest things I’ve ever done in my entire life.”
“I just want to thank all of the support from all y’all it just means a lot. I’m glad to be home now today, thank you,” Clark concluded.
