A video showing President Donald Trump stopping his presidential motorcade to thank firefighters is going viral.

What happened?

The video shows the presidential motorcade pulling into an airport. That's when Trump's presidential limousine, known as "The Beast" or "Cadillac One," suddenly stops. Two Secret Service agents are seen walking to the car.

The person capturing the footage, presumably a first responder, is heard saying, "No he's not...this is great!"

That's when Trump steps out of his presidential car, waves and claps his hands and begins walking toward the firefighters.

The president then shakes the hand of each firefighter who was there, telling them "thank you" as he made his way down the line of first responders. Trump then poses for several photographs with the firefighters. Trump even gives his signature "thumbs up" for the pictures.

"That's awesome!" the man holding the camera is heard saying.

According to ViralHog, the impromptu stop happened on May 23 as Trump was departing Bethpage, New York, following a forum on illegal immigration:

Bethpage Fire Department was asked to provide a crew in case marine 1 or any of the other aircraft that is with President Trump crashed or caught fire while landing and taking off from Bethpage while he was in town for a press conference about MS13 gang violence with congressmen Peter King and family members of victims of the gang.

Despite the touching moment, it appears no mainstream media outlet reported on the moment when it happened. Video of the incident just went viral this weekend, garnering hundreds of thousands of views.
