The president thanked the “angels sent to us by God” for their sacrifice.
President Trump addressed families of the military fallen at Arlington National Cemetery to honor Memorial Day on Monday, sending the country’s thanks to the fallen.
“They each had their own names, their own stories, their own beautiful dreams, but they were all angels sent to us by God,” Trump said of the fallen. “And they all share one title in common, and that is the title of hero. Real heroes.”
“Their legacy will endure forever,” he said to the Gold Star families gathered.
Trump then quoted one of his favorite historical figures, General Douglas MacArthur, calling soldiers “the noblest development of mankind.”
“We pay tribute to those brave souls who raced into gunfire, roared into battle, and ran into hell to face down evil,” he said.
