As I am sure you have figured out by now, your lovable old Grey Beard Biker loves military history – especially U.S. Military History. Yesterday was a day of remembrance for me, remembering all of our brave soldiers who participated in D-Day Normandy. In case you missed my article yesterday, you can find it HERE.
Last night, I watched President Donald J. Trump’s D-Day speech, delivered above Omaha Beach, in Normandy, France. Some of presidents have been fantastic speakers: Franklin D. Roosevelt, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan – and even Barack Obama. I have never considered Trump an eloquent speaker. He often seems stiff to me. He absolutely nailed it yesterday. If you have not watched his speech, it is well worth the 30 minute time commitment to do so.
Trump’s speech received praise from some unexpected sources:
“This is perhaps the most on-message moment of Donald Trump’s presidency today.” – Jim Acosta, CNN White House Correspondent
“I’m also glad the president chose to have the discipline to stick to script and deliver what, again, I believe is the strongest speech of his presidency.” – Joe Scarborough, MSNBC morning host
If you have time this weekend, take some time and listen to Trump’s Normandy speech. I would be interested to hear what you think of it.
