Trump: Veterans Who Died for the US ‘Would Be Very Happy and Proud’ of the Country Today

President Donald Trump tweeted on Memorial Day that fallen United States soldiers “would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today.”

“Happy Memorial Day! Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today,” the president wrote.

“Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice!” he concluded. 

Trump also tweeted a video earlier in the day honoring service members who died fighting for the United States. In it, he shared stories of previous Memorial Day celebrations and family members of soldiers who died.

“On this Memorial Day, I know that everybody is remembering the fallen soldiers who paid the ultimate price for our country. It’s a country that we love,” Trump said.

“As Americans, we come together to remember our great heroes on this Memorial Day,” he continued.

The president is set to attend a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery at 11:00 a.m. [ET] on Monday.
