President Trump Participates in a Meeting with Medal of Honor Recipients


The President:
Thank you very much. This is a great
honor for me. These are very, very brave
people standing behind me. And we’re here today to
mark Medal of Honor Day, and it is my great
privilege and high honor to welcome 25 Medal of
Honor recipients to our White House. Very special honor,
thank you all very much. (Applause.) I can say
officially they are much braver than I am, okay? (Laughter.) Do you agree
with that, General? General Mattis: I
do, Mr. President. (Laughter.) Medal Of
Honor Recipient: That’s the right answer. (Laughter.) The President: It is the right answer. One-third of the nation’s
75 living Medal of Honor recipients are with us. So it’s really — that’s
a great tribute to all of us, a great tribute
to our nation. Each of you has risen
above and beyond the call of duty in defense of our
country, our people, and our flag. You have poured out your
hearts, your sweat, and your tears like few
others, and your blood — most importantly your
blood for the United States of America. We thank you, very
much thank you. You are the soul of our
nation, and a grateful republic salutes you. Constantly we’re
saluting you. We have great admiration
and respect, believe me. I know what you’ve
been through. We write your names and
deeds in our national memory, and we will
forever remember — forever, forever and ever
— those who did not come home, but who died for
the cause of freedom. I want to thank the
Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation for
preserving the incredible stories of our Medal of
Honor heroes for future generations. Done a great job. In this room hangs the
portrait of our 26th President, Theodore
Roosevelt. He was awarded the Medal
of Honor for his courage alongside his band of
Rough Riders at the Battle of San Juan Hill. You know about the
Rough Riders, right? Right? Absolutely. His medal, which is also
displayed here, is a reminder of how blessed we
truly are to live in the land of heroes. And you are our
greatest heroes. To all of those gathered
here today, and to all of those warriors who could
not be with us, we thank you. Your acts of valor inspire
us — and they show us that there is always
someone on the night watch to ensure a bright sun
rises on America each and every morning. God bless you. God bless our military
and God bless the United States of America. I want to just thank you
very much for being here. It’s my great honor. (Applause.) And as you
know, we have David who is doing a great
job at the VA. Already tremendous signs
are happening, positive signs. And we have General Mattis
who is doing a great job out there on the field,
and you see a big difference. A lot of difference taking
place over the last six weeks. So I want to thank
General Mattis, too. And thank you all, and
it’s great to have met you. Oh, look at this. Medal Of Honor Recipient:
Mr. President, on behalf of the Medal of Honor
Society, I’d like to present a book “Portraits
of Valor,” which contains all the signatures of the
men in the room here, plus about 200 Medal of
Honor recipients. The President:
That is very nice. That is very nice. (Applause.) I know these
folks would like to stand behind me when I do this,
but I don’t want to put them in a political
situation, so we’re going to talk a little politics. And I think it might be
unfair to them, so I’ll ask them to — they’re
going to go over to the Roosevelt Room, and we’ll
see you a little bit later. We’re going to do —
unless the press doesn’t want to talk politics? (Laughter.) No? Okay, well, they do. But I want to thank
you all very much.

  1. So how can you give a thumbs down to people who gave up much for the people of this country and the world. (Currently 13 thumbs down…you are sad.)

  2. Thank you so much for your service to our country to each and every one of these fine outstanding American heroes. Thank you, Johnny G.

  3. These men are the best our county ever has to offer im on honored to lay eyes on a room full of such men. EXCEPT of course for prez Trumpet who couldn't really care less and is clearly just doing it for the fucking press op

  4. Why isn't America being ran by the Native Americans?
    At what point do we atone for 250 years of sin on this land?

  5. I simply adore this President! Aren't we so blessed to have someone like him who really and truly cares about us and our country? God bless you POTUS! WOW!

  6. It's great to see a President who spends time with the people who have served this country. Unlike the last administration they were welcome in the White House.

  7. This group of PATRIOTS, are not being born today in this "new America". The degenerates that are flooding (OUR) once great nation, are nothing more than third world rejects. GO NAVY!!!

  8. With all due respect Mr. President, I VERY much appreciate your time and words to honor these men, but two of your comments were concerning A) we cannot possibly truly know what these heroes went through. And B) I wish you would have acknowledged the men in wheelchairs around you, not only the ones standing in the back – the look on most of their faces when you did not acknowledge them said it all.

  9. Hey Donald, Tell them about your four deferments and your bone spurs which kept your chicken shit ass out of serving your country…..go ahead tell you fucking coward!!!

  10. How is it that we have a Republican president and Republican majority in both houses of Congress, yet Republicans still play defense and still lose to the socialists?!?! My family is forced to buy worthless health insurance that won't cover any expenses, we cannot afford the fines imposed if we don't buy the insurance we can't use, and waiting for Obamacare to "explode itself" will certainly bankrupt us, if we manage to survive at all!! SHAME!!! FIX IT!!!! Action, NOT rhetoric.

  11. God Bless The Men who fought and continue to fight for our Country! And God Bless you Mr. President! This is what a Real President looks like!!!!

  12. Would be an honor to be surrounded by 25 bad asses, I would have paid to get all 75 bad asses together. If an area is not already set up to bury MOH soldiers in, They should dedicate an area.

  13. Freedom Caucasus is receiving campaign contributions from insurance companies,they would not send the bill if the insurers had to honor pre-existing conditions

  14. OUR MR. TRUMP OUR GREATEST PRESIDENTS KICKS ASS EVERY DAMM DAY!!! GOD BLESS AND PROTECT HIM AND HIS FAMILY- THANK YOU PRESIDENT TRUMP!!

  15. To all these brave and courageous American and to the over 3,000 recipients of the Medal of Honor there aren't enough words in the English language to thank you for all you've done to keep us safe and free! Your blood, sweat and tears has shaped the future for Americans everywhere, you have made it possible for all Americans to have a bright future and to continue to pursue our dreams! You're an inspiration to us all, and once again thanks so much for your service to our great nation, God bless you and as always may God bless America!

  16. I don't care who you are, you don't sit on your butt when a Medal of Honor Recipient is standing. GET ON YOUR FEET MR PRESIDENT!!!!

  17. No Black Medal of Honor recipients? No People of Color Recipients? pft! Trump has done some good things but must be semi-conscious not to notice that!

  18. Thank you for honoring these tremendous citizens for their amazing life of service and sacrifice. Freedom is not Free

  19. Love This…! Giving credit to our nations heroes..! Why we enjoy our freedom… God Bless all of them! ThankYou Mr. President

  20. It's nice to see a real president, a real American, a real capitalist, and a real freedom lover interacting with our military rather than the fraud who just left office.

  21. Wish that John Caviani would have been able to be there. What an honor it would have been for him to sit with POTUS and for POTUS to have met John. RIP

  22. During the Viet Nam war there was one man, in the 9th Div., who got the CMH for diving on a grenade. It did NOT go off !!!

  23. God bless our #45 and may he accomplish all that needs to be done.( D ) party – rot in hell. Nothing but Marxists in cheap suits.

  24. When Obama the Muslim, liar, he had those who received the medal and there families sit in the back rows like the were secondary citizens. He never cared about veterans especially when one our Generals got KIA in a terrorist attack, he never attended or even sent his VP to the funeral.

  25. All of those men are true American hero's who gave everything they had under the direst of circumstances. They showed the utmost bravery and truly will never be forgotten. I wish there was a better way than with words to express to them all what esteem I hold them in. I salute all of you.

  26. عزيزى الرئيس دونالد ترامب يقول المثل المصرى حجة البليد مسح التختة ! حتى لا يجتهد المجتهدين وبنجاحهم يظهر مدى فشل البليد

  30. 미국은 자존심도 없나 ! 1947년 이후 오늘에까지 북한 김일성 김정일 김정은이가 미국을 가지고 놀았는데

  31. The Medal of Honor recipients are American Heroes. Many of them paid the ultimate price to promote democracy and defend our values. When called upon they went above and beyond what was expected of them. As a veteran with few medals, I salute you.

  32. ❤️️. WE WILL REMEMBER FOREVER❤️️. THIS WAS A LONG TIME COMING AMERICA! 🇺🇸SALUTE TO THE VETERANS! 🇺🇸THANK YOU😇

  33. I love Trump I believe in him so much I am so proud of my country, and  he is going to make me even more proud of my country with the great things he is going to do for the people you lift up the people you will lift up the nation and I only hope for the people of our country to be lifted up and proud of the country we share again.

  34. There's a president who actually LOVES and RESPECTS our veterans! #MakeAmericaGreatAgain Trump-Pence 2017-2024

  35. Heros!! Seeing the old man in wheelchair who probably fought the Korean or the Vietnam war. And he is home alive. Bless all you guys.

  36. Okay, so you don't like Trump. I do, but I get it, you don't.

    And that's fine.

    But, and here it comes, why would you give a thumbs down to a video where the President of the United States is paying tribute to…men. Warriors. Heroes. Recipients of the Medal of Honor. Those who risk so very much for the man beside them.

    Why.

    If you thumb down this video, entertain me with your​ reason.

  37. It is a great honor to greet our fellow veterans and to all our men and women in the service. Thank you so much for keeping our land safe and free. Happy Memorial Day to all. Salute!

  38. It's disgraceful for Donald Trump, a draft dodger who used a bone spur to keep out of the Military to even be in the same room with brave men of honor! He should kiss the ass of every brave men that are standing in that room!

  39. 如果每個國家之元首都可以有著聽取民意之聲而去再作出政策上修改,一個制度只獨裁的那何會有人民支持與共同維護之理念也,敬佩能面對民眾的國家元首。
