‘We Are One People’ President Trump’s Independence Day Speech

President Trump is now the first president in nearly 70 years to speak at the National Mall on Independence Day.

The full might of the military was on display, featuring flyovers from every branch of the military along with armored vehicles, tanks, and military men and women.

President Trump spoke at the Lincoln Memorial for nearly 45 minutes.

He thanked each branch of the military and called the U.S. the “most exceptional nation in the history of the world.”

“We are Americans, and the future belongs to us,” he said. “The future belongs to the brave, the strong, the proud and the free. We are one people chasing one dream and one magnificent destiny.”

Trump avoided talking about his campaign during the speech, keeping the speech patriotic and avoiding politics. If he hadn’t, the move that would have cost event organizers millions of dollars as a violation of federal appropriations law.

The celebration in Washington, D.C. drew large crowds to celebrate The Fourth of July, but the event also brought hundreds of protesters.

Several groups demonstrated a few blocks from the Lincoln Memorial, including antiwar group Code Pink.

They came armed with a President Trump balloon depicting him as an angry baby.

Many protesters claimed he used the holiday to play politics on a day that is meant to bring Americans together, citing that VIP tickets to the celebration went to the Republican National Committee and top GOP donors.

The president is also facing questions about the cost of the production.

Neither the pentagon nor the White House has provided a number.

The flyovers alone cost tens of thousands of dollars an hour.

But the president said yesterday that the celebration would cost “very little compared to what it’s worth.”
