President Donald Trump’s D-Day remembrance speech was easily one of his best yet. Normandy was a major turning point in the war, so it was only fitting that the president be there for its 75th anniversary.
“Here with you are over 60 veterans who landed on D-Day. Our debt to you is everlasting. Today we express our undying gratitude. When you were young, these men enlisted their lives in a great crusade. One of the greatest of all time.
Their mission is the story of an epic battle and the ferocious and eternal struggle between good and evil.”
The crowd was poised and silent in remembrance. They listened eagerly for Trump’s acknowledgment of our soldiers’ accomplishments.
“To all the men who sit behind me and to the boys who rest in the field before me: your example will never, ever grow old.”
A well-earned applause was provided.
“Your legend will never die. Your spirit, brave, unyielding and true will never die.
The blood that they spilled, the tears that they shed, the lives that they gave, the sacrifice that they made did not just win a battle. It did not just win a war.
Those who fought here won a future for our nation. They won the survival of our civilization.”
We wouldn’t have what we do now without the troops that gave the ultimate sacrifice on D-Day. They stormed the beaches to cleanse the world of pure evil. It was the beginning of the end for the Nazis.
In a shocking moment of unification, even fake news proponents praised Trump for his words. Even liars can’t lie about the president respecting our fallen comrades. Jim Acosta from CNN and Joe Scarborough from MSNBC begrudgingly feel that Trump got it right at Normandy.
Of course he did! Trump wouldn’t hold the highest seat in the land if he was off track. It’s a sad state of affairs when mass media tries to question the good intentions of our great leader. Even the fake news believe this is the strongest speech of his entire presidency. Trump delivered (as always), and that’s that.
Trump shared war stories and the heroic feats of our soldiers. He recounted the deeds of the 16th Infantry Regiment; 7 out of 31 men made it off their landing craft. Each of them vowed to take care of each others’ families if one of them didn’t make it back home. It’s just one of many examples of The Greatest Generation’s moral integrity and endless perseverance.
The president’s next stop is Ireland where he’ll rest before coming back home on Friday. No one will soon forget his great speech at the location of (arguably) the most influential point in World War 2. The world still remembers it 75 years later and, God-willing, we’ll remember this day another 75 years from now and beyond.
