A group of Trump supporters on Wednesday was spotted carrying a World War II veteran to his seat before the president’s rally in Phoenix, Ariz., video shows.
A clip posted to Twitter shows two men, one donning a Trump hat, carrying the vet down a flight of stairs at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
The crowd can be heard chanting “USA! USA!” in the background.

President Trump didn’t forget the sacrifice this man did so that he can attend his rally and decided to honor him.
In true Trump fashion, the President recognized 100-year-old WWII veteran Irvin Julian, who was carried into the rally by Trump supporters.
“It’s all over TV that the folks here tonight have helped a great World War II veteran into the arena. I don’t know if he knows it, but he’s, right now, the hottest celebrity in the world. He might even be hotter than Trump, right now, I have to say,” the President said.
“He’s all over television. Even ‘fake news CNN’ had him on, but they say he is a legitimate hero, a veteran of World War II, Irvin Julian,” Trump continued.
The president thanked Julian, who was being held up by supporters as the crowd erupted in applause, giving the hero a standing ovation.
The president then had his son, Donald Trump Jr. give Julian and the men who carried him MAGA hats.
This was another huge MAGA rally as supporters camped outside the venue overnight to get into the building Wednesday afternoon for Trump’s speech at 7 p.m.
