Donald Trump honored the fallen on Memorial Day, saying, “America’s warriors are the single greatest force for justice, peace, liberty, and security among all the nations ever to exist on earth."
Trump added, “they faced down our enemies and gave their lives so that America would prevail.”
"God bless our fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Coast Guardsmen, Airmen, and Marines,” he wrote.
“We honor them today, forever, and always… the fallen heroes who took their last breaths in defense of our Nation, our families, our citizens, and our sacred freedoms,” the 45th president said.
“The depth of their devotion, the steel of their resolve, and the purity of their patriotism have no equal in human history."
"On distant battlefields, in far-off oceans, and high in the skies above, they faced down our enemies and gave their lives so that America would prevail,” he continued.
Trumps said veterans “made the supreme sacrifice so that our people can live in safety and our Nation can thrive in peace.”
“It is because of their gallantry that we can together, as one people, continue our pursuit of America’s glorious destiny,” Trump concluded.

Jan Brown, the national commander of AMVETS, said:
“The biggest disappointment in the Pentagon’s denial was that AMVETS was ignored for months as its professional staff in Washington requested numerous times an opportunity to hear the Defense Department’s concerns and present a [coronavirus] safety plan."
The White House failed to explain why they ignored the group this year.
