Hundreds of thousands of bikers came together today in Washington, DC to memorialize America’s heroes — those who are prisoner of war and service members missing in action.

The event is called Rolling Thunder, and it takes place every year.  It is by far one of the most patriotic events in America.  Donald Trump spoke at Rolling Thunder today.

“People in the U.S. illegally are cared for better in the United States than the nation’s military veterans,” Trump said to the massive crowd of cheering bikers.  Trump was warmly received by the crowd despite having once said he prefers “people who weren’t captured” when criticizing Arizona Sen. John McCain, a war prisoner during Vietnam.

Trump told the crowd that if elected he plans to “knock the hell out of the Islamic State” by building a bigger, better military. He also reiterated his promise to build a wall to keep out people from entering the country illegally.

Here are a collection of photos from the event.  You will notice one thing missing from this event when compared to previous Trump rallies…. no protesters were seen holding Mexican flags.
