President Donald Trump delivered a moving address during the 75th-anniversary commemoration of D-Day in Normandy, France, on Thursday.
The president took the stage shortly after French President Emmanuel Macron and addressed the crowd, which included 60 American veterans who were present on D-Day when the American forces stormed the beaches of Normandy. You are the pride of our nation, you are the glory of the republic, and we thank you from the bottom of our heart, Trump said to applause.
The president honored the troops from other countries before asserting, And finally, there were the Americans.
They came from the farms of a vast heartland, the streets of glowing cities and the forges of mighty industrial towns. Before the war, many had never ventured beyond their own community. Now, they had come to offer their lives halfway across the world, he said.
The president declared that the soldiers who came to Normandy that day knew that they were carrying on their shoulders not just the pack of a soldier, the but the fate of the world.
Trump took time to honor several of the American veterans present by name, including former Army medic Arnold Raymond Ray Lambert, who is now 98 years old.
Lambert was one of just six men who survived from his landing craft, was shot in the arm, had his leg ripped open by shrapnel, and suffered a broken back, but he continued to attempt to save others on the beach and in the water for hours.

Even JIM ACOSTA (CNN) and JOE SCARBOROUGH (MSNBC) praised Trumps speech:
Both Morning Joe and lil jimmy acosta had praise for the speech, and hell froze over.
You were one minute faster than I was:)
And can I just say that French President Macron behaved very sweetly with the veterans he was sitting next to, making sure they were comfortable, helping them as they stood up when Trump mentioned them in his speech...
A memorable, classy speech as it should be from a REAL AMERICAN PRESIDENT. We have not had a real POTUS for a long time....
Choke on it, you seditious hag.
She looks like Steny Hoyer has his thumb up her ass...
But then again, she looks that way no matter what.
I have to laugh at the reactions to his speech. Comments were unanimous that this was a great speech.
Yet...the Dems are calling psychiatrists in to D.C. to discuss Trump’s failing mental capacity.
You’ve got to love the hypocrisy.
It’s just Next Week’s Talking Points for their suckups in the media and their psycho base.
They got nothing.
So sad: neither Google nor Yahoo acknowledges the anniversary on their homepages.
What else would you expect from liberal asswipes?.
Mr. RR and I got up early and watched the whole thing. Wet eyes and all. very touching. President Trump was fabulous.
“The president honored the troops from other countries before asserting” -
The French NPR lady made a point of saying all of the other leaders mentioned the allies and Trump only spoke about Americans. She was lying.
Yeah but they had to sneak in a dig saying they were afraid he might go ‘’off message’’. Bunch of weasels.
Either that or she put her dentures in backwards.
