President Donald Trump spoke Tuesday in praise of veterans at a West Virginia event at The Greenbrier resort.
“Every time we see an American in uniform, any time we have the chance to shake the hand of a veteran whenever we hear the stories of our warriors, we are reminded how truly blessed we are to be American and to live in this land of our great heroes,” said Trump, Fox News reported.
“This Fourth of July let us pledge to renew the bonds of love and loyalty that unite us together as Americans,” Trump said.
At another point in the speech, Trump praised the U.S. armed forces. “American independence has endured because of the sweat, blood, and sacrifice of the American armed forces,” Trump said.
