Donald Trump honored fallen U.S. service members during remarks at the Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia today.
In his first Memorial Day remarks as commander-in-chief, Trump praised those who died in war and their families.
“Here at this hollowed shrine, we honor the noblest among us, the men and women who paid the ultimate price for victory and for freedom,” Trump said in an address that lasted about 20 minutes to a crowd of veterans, their families and members of his administration.
“We only hope that every day, we can prove worthy not only of their sacrifice and their service, but of the sacrifice made by the families and loved ones they left behind.”
Trump honored the son of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, Robert, who died while serving in Afghanistan in 2010.
“The Kelly family represents military families across the country who carry the burden of freedom on their shoulders,” Trump said.
“It is because of families like yours that all of our families can live in safety and in peace.”
What most people are talking about though, is Trump’s behavior during the performance of the Star Spangled Banner.
Trump shifted back and forth, patted his heart, and then burst out the words along with the music. The ADHD behavior is odd.
