President Trump told a bizarre story about a soldier whose “face was blown apart” and “rebuilt with glue” during a Thursday night campaign rally in Minnesota.
“But I saw these young men, and I gave them their purple hearts. And their parents were there crying,” Trump told the crowd.
“And one of them was so amazing – I said, ‘What’s your problem?’ ” he said. ” ‘Sir, my face was blown apart. My nose was absolutely just blown apart,’ he said. ‘Sir. It’s incredible.’ And I look at him and said, ‘That’s the most beautiful nose I’ve ever seen. What do you mean?’ ”
Trump continued: “He said, ‘A doctor worked on my face for ten hours in the field. He said there were a thousand fragments.’ Now, I don’t know if that’s right but, well a lot – he meant a lot – He said there were a thousand fragments.”
” ‘He rebuilt my nose with glue. He glued the bones together. He rebuilt my nose.’ I say, ‘You have the most beautiful nose I’ve ever seen,'” Trump added. “It’s true. and his father came over to me. He said, ‘Sir,’ – the father was crying – he said, ‘Sir, honestly, my son looks better now.’ He said, ‘ My son did not have a good looking nose, now look at it, it’s beautiful.’ ”
