Donald Trump awarded a Purple Heart to an Army sergeant Saturday
 who was wounded in Afghanistan.

Though most of the press expected the president to play a round of 
golf that day, the president instead took a trip to the Walter Reed National 
Military Medical Center with First Lady Melania Trump. It was there he gave
 Sgt. First Class Alvaro Barrientos the award.

Barrientos’s right leg was amputated below the knee after he was injured 
in March.

“When I heard about this, I wanted to do it myself,” Trump said.
 “Congratulations on behalf of Melania and myself and the entire 
nation. Tremendous, tremendous job, congratulations.”
