Shane Bouvet was invited to the “Make America Great Again” concert the night before Inauguration Day. At the concert, 24-year-old Bouvet, who had volunteered to help Donald Trump’s cause throughout the campaign cycle, was taken behind the scenes to meet the 45th President of the United States.

“I started walking into the white tent and they all just started clapping, and I felt God’s presence in there, I really did,” Bouvet told Liz MacDonald during an interview on "Risk & Reward."

“Donald Trump is the most genuine, humble, caring person I’ve ever met in my life, and I owe everything to him,” Bouvet said, adding that he was also invited to one of the inaugural balls.
