Arlington National Ceremony in Virginia was the place where Donald Trump was participating in a Memorial Day ceremony. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is the place where the president laid a wreath to honor America’s fallen heroes.
They marched into hell so that America could know the blessings of peace. They died so that freedom could live,” Trump said.
In the president speech there was place also for those whose loved ones died in combat.
“To every parent who weeps for a child, to every child who mourns for a parent and to every husband or wife whose heart has been torn in two today we ask God to comfort your pain, to ease your sorrow and to wipe away your tears,” Trump said. “This is a very special day and today our whole country thanks you, embraces you and pledges to you we will never forget our heroes.”
Trump honored Ray Chavez, at 106, the oldest living hero of the attacks on Pearl Harbor.
Earlier on Memorial Day tweeted that “Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today”
Happy Memorial Day! Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today. Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice!
