Wounded War­riors boost bi­cy­cling event

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — S.A. Miller

Pres­i­dent Trump wel­comed 50 Wounded War­riors to the White House to kick-start the an­nual Sol­dier Ride bi­cy­cling event Thurs­day, call­ing the vet­er­ans “real heroes.”

“I call them Amer­ica’s win­ners be­cause they’re win­ners,” Mr. Trump said at the re­cep­tion in the East Room.

The pres­i­dent wel­comed the as­sem­bled crowd to the “peo­ple’s house.” He then turned to the wounded vet­er­ans on stage with him, who were dressed in black Wounded Warrior Project sweat­suits, and told them they were “amaz­ing.”

“Let’s have a great ride be­cause, I’ll tell you what, I couldn’t do it,” Mr. Trump said to chuck­les from the crowd.

The Sol­dier Ride is a mul­ti­day, re­ha­bil­i­ta­tive bi­cy­cle ride de­signed to help vet­er­ans re­cover from the phys­i­cal and psy­cho­log­i­cal wounds of war. The event is con­ducted in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Wounded Warrior Project.
