Former President Donald Trump gave a strong and remarkable message to remember the troops who died in combat serving the United States for Memorial Day.
“On this Memorial Day, we remember the fallen heroes who took their last breaths in defense of our Nation, our families, our citizens, and our sacred freedoms,” President Trump said. “The depth of their devotion, the steel of their resolve, and the purity of their patriotism has no equal in human history.”
“It is because of their gallantry that we can together, as one people, continue our pursuit of America’s glorious destiny,” he continued.
“We owe all that we are, and everything we ever hope to be, to these unrivaled heroes. Their memory and their legacy is immortal. Our loyalty to them and to their families is eternal and everlasting,” he added.
“America’s warriors are the single greatest force for justice, peace, liberty, and security among all the nations ever to exist on earth. God bless our fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Coast Guardsmen, Airmen, and Marines,” Trump noted.
In the meantime, Vice President Kamala Harris and President Joe Biden provoked controversy with their messages on social media prior to Memorial Day.
Ahead of the Memorial Day holiday, which is a symbol of deep reflection and gratitude for our uniformed men and women, Harris issued one of the most indifferent and trivial statements one could imagine.

“Enjoy the long weekend,” was tweeted on Harris’s official vice-presidential account.
The current president also had an uninspiring message for the American people for Memorial Day.
Stay cool this weekend, folks. pic.twitter.com/Z2xOTekvUZ

“Stay cool this weekend, folks.”
Former President Trump issued a statement prior to Memorial Day, with harsh criticism for the current administration.
“With Memorial Day Weekend coming up, tomorrow people start driving in the biggest automobile days of the year,” Trump stated. “I’m sorry to say the gasoline prices that you will be confronted with are far higher than they were just a short number of months ago where we had gasoline under $2 a gallon.”
“Remember as you’re watching the meter tick, and your dollars pile up, how great of a job Donald Trump did as President,” Trump added. “Soon Russia and the Middle East will be making a fortune on oil, and you will be saying how good it was to have me as your President. Wasn’t it great to be energy independent, but we are energy independent no more.”
“Shame, shame, shame,” he finished. “Other than that, have a great Memorial Day Weekend!”
Recently, Arlington National Cemetery loosened COVID safety protocols for family members and veterans to visit. Joe Biden is supposed to give an address at Arlington at 10:30 a.m., along with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley.
