Former President Donald Trump spoke out on Monday to honor the “fallen heroes” who made the “supreme sacrifice” for their country in a Memorial Day message. He went on to remind the American people that “all that we are” is thanks to them.
“We remember the fallen heroes who took their last breaths in defense of our Nation, our families, our citizens, and our sacred freedoms. The depth of their devotion, the steel of their resolve, and the purity of their patriotism has no equal in human history,” he said. “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.”
“They made the supreme sacrifice so that our people can live in safety and our Nation can thrive in peace,” Trump continued. “It is because of their gallantry that we can together, as one people, continue our pursuit of America’s glorious destiny.”
Not stopping there, Trump added that Americans “owe all that we are, and everything we ever hope to be, to these unrivaled heroes. Their memory and their legacy is immortal. Our loyalty to them and to their families is eternal and everlasting.”
Trump concluded by saying that the country’s “warriors are the single greatest force for justice, peace, liberty, and security among all the nations ever to exist on earth,” adding, “We honor them today, forever, and always.”

This came days after Trump released another statement saying, “With Memorial Day Weekend coming up, tomorrow people start driving in the biggest automobile days of the year. I’m sorry to say the gasoline prices that you will be confronted with are far higher than they were just a short number of months ago where we had gasoline under $2 a gallon.”
“Remember as you’re watching the meter tick, and your dollars pile up, how great of a job Donald Trump did as President. Soon Russia and the Middle East will be making a fortune on oil, and you will be saying how good it was to have me as your President,” he added. “Wasn’t it great to be energy independent, but we are energy independent no more. Shame, shame, shame. Other than that, have a great Memorial Day Weekend!
