Texas Rancher Give ‘Trophy Buckle’ Off His Belt to Trump at Border Visit

President Trump received an very special and personal gift from a local rancher as he met with Border Patrol officials in Texas last week.

The gift was handed to the President after a round-table discussion about border security in Texas on Thursday. Awbrey approached the president with the unusual but very meaningful gift.

After a quick awkward moment as Awbrey undid his buckle, it was all smiles and laughter as he handed the Texas sized buckle to the President.

“I want to gift you with my belt buckle,” Monty Awbrey said. “You can give it to your son, Barron.”

“He’s bribing the president!” Trump joked. “I want this to be out in the open, everybody. I don’t know if this is worth ten cents of $50,000 but, anyway, that’s very nice.”

Awbrey had spoken in support of the border wall during the meeting in McAllen, Texas.

“The Border Patrol right now, their hands are tied, and these immigrants know it,” Awbrey said, pointing out that immigrants are often smuggled across the border by coyotes.

Trump had welcomed the round-table by saying, “I’m honored to be in McAllen, Texas with the heroes of Border Patrol, and they are heroes. You take so much heat, so much abuse from people who don’t know what they’re talking about. I want to say you have a friend with this administration and you have a friend with me.”

“You have no idea how much you’re loved by the public,” Trump continued. “Maybe not by the fake news, but you’re loved by the public.”

Placed before Trump at the meeting were objects from the crisis on the border.

According to the White House Pool report, the props include an “M82 rifle, a plastic bag full of cash, colt handguns, and black-taped bricks of meth and heroin.”

The items represent dangerous and illicit items that Border Patrol agents have seized while defending the border.

Among the Border Patrol agents and politicians in the room, Trump was also joined by Reggie Singh. He is the brother of California police officer Ronil Singh, who was killed by an illegal alien over the holidays.

Reggie gave powerful comments during the round-table about his brother. Speaking of the murder of his brother, Reggie said, “Whatever it takes to minimize, put a stop to it, my family fully supports it.”

Meanwhile….

CNN’s Jim Acosta also traveled to the U.S.-Mexico border in McAllen, Texas, on Thursday to cover the presidential visit.

As Acosta waited for the the President, he took a selfie video walking along the border, and inadvertently made a case for the construction of a border wall.

In the video, Acosta wanders around steel slats on the border, describing how “tranquil” it is. “I found some steel slats down on the border. But I don’t see anything resembling a national emergency situation,” Acosta tweeted.

The picture went viral, as Acosta had proven the physical barrier was working, providing much laughter in the world of social media.

It spawned a number of memes, with Acosta declaring items in society do not work, like signal lights and dams.

When will they ever learn?
