Donald Trump marked his first Memorial Day as President at Arlington National Cemetery.
The president will lay a wreath before delivering remarks honoring servicemembers who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
In his Memorial Day message, President Trump is mindful that this year marks the 100th anniversary of the nation’s entry into World War I. Mr. Trump also notes that over one million warriors who stepped up to defend the country in various wars paid the ultimate price.
“Memorial Day is our nation’s solemn reminder that freedom is never free. It is a moment of collective reflection on the noble sacrifices of those who helped us win all those wars, and even the ones we lost, in the defense of our nation. We remember the fallen, who died in places with names like Gettysburg, Normandy, Kandahar, Benghazi, and Bowling Green, and we honor these guardians of our inalienable rights.”, Mr. Trump says in his remarks observing the day.
Trump also noted his desire to boost spending on the military, and as commander in chief pledged his “complete and unshakeable support” to the men and women in uniform. He compared their sacrifice to the sacrifices he and his family have endured under the scrutiny of the liberal media and Hilary Clinton.
“Today we remember all the warriors of freedom who keep the fires of liberty burning. All those young people who served overseas because they couldn’t find real jobs at home. They fill me with pride and joy as I see them in their uniforms and think to myself, ‘Thank you for your service, better you than me.”
Trump at times appeared to veer off-script to speak about how the United States should be spending resources to investigate the actual identity of the non-existent person interred at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery.
“It’s terrible. So sad. nobody knows who this poor guy is. He’s like that comic that used to wear the bag over his head. Those service people that walk up and down protecting that guy’s tomb. I bet I could do it. I’m in great shape. If I had been in the Army, and by the way, I almost joined the ROTC in College, I would’ve been up there marching around with them,” Trump said. “It’s a shame. We don’t know who that unknown soldier is anymore.”
The president returned home from his first foreign trip over the weekend where he made many great accomplishments including laying his hands on a giant glowing orb.
