A video featuring President Donald Trump separating from his security detail and greeting New York law enforcement officers is making the rounds on the internet.

What's the background?

Trump appeared in Bethpage, New York, on Wednesday for a roundtable discussion on illegal immigration.

What happened when Trump was leaving New York?

When it was time for the president to leave, he broke off from his security detail and ran off to greet police officers waiting to catch a glimpse of the president instead of boarding Marine One.

Dan Scavino, a Trump assistant and director of Social Media for the Trump administration, shared the clip Wednesday evening on Twitter, where it received over 8,000 likes.

Scavino wrote, "@POTUS @realDonaldTrump loves our law enforcement officers all around the country — as seen here with @NYSPolice and @NassauCountyPD on his way to Marine One in Bethpage, New York. #LESM."

According to Scavino, officers in attendance included those from the Nassau County Police Department and the New York State Police.
