President Donald Trump delivered a Memorial Day speech on Monday centered on the resolve of the nation as American works to return to normalcy while battling a pandemic.
“In recent months, our nation and the world have been engaged in a new form of battle against an invisible enemy. Once more, the men and women of the United States military have answered the call to duty and raced into danger. Tens of thousands of service members and National Guardsmen are on the front lines of our war against this terrible virus, caring for patients, delivering critical supplies, and working night and day to safeguard our citizens,” Trump said at Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland.
“As one nation, we mourn alongside every single family that has lost loved ones, including the families of our great veterans. Together, we will vanquish the virus, and America will rise from this crisis to new, and even greater heights.
As our brave warriors have shown us from the nation’s earliest days – in America, we are the captains of our own fate.
No obstacle, no challenge, and no threat is a match for the sheer determination of the American people,” Trump said.
