“HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY TO ALL, BUT ESPECIALLY TO THOSE WHO GAVE THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE FOR THE COUNTRY THEY LOVE,” Trump started his capitalized message on Truth Social.
Furthermore, he acknowledged those who are standing against what he defined as:
“VERY DIFFERENT, BUT EQUALLY DANGEROUS FIRE, STOPPING THE THREATS OF THE TERRORISTS, MISFITS, AND LUNATIC THUGS WHO ARE WORKING FEVERISHLY FROM WITHIN TO OVERTURN AND DESTROY OUR ONCE GREAT COUNTRY.”

Trump hails American Patriots
“Here on this soil, on these grounds, beneath those fields, lies the true source of American Greatness, of American glory, and of American freedom,” Trump stated in the video.
“As long as we are blessed with patriots such as these, we shall forever remain one people, one family, and one nation under God,” he continued.
His statement was one among a flurry of messages from presidential contenders on social media this Memorial Day.
Governor DeSantis honors the sacrifice of American patriots
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a recent entrant into the presidential race, also made his remarks: “Today, we honor the patriots who paid the ultimate price for our country. Their sacrifices have allowed Americans throughout many generations to enjoy the blessings of liberty.”
“Freedom is not free,” stated Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) on social media while encouraging Americans to reflect upon and draw inspiration from the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.
“We don’t have to be Rome,” commented businessman Vivek Ramaswamy. “We don’t have to be Carthage. We’re just a little young. Going through our version of adolescence. Figuring out who we really are as we grow up.”
“I’m confident we’ll be even stronger for it. Happy Memorial Day,” he optimistically concluded.
Similarly, former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson also posted a Memorial Day message, asserting, “Our nation is strong and free because of their sacrifices.”
“Today we honor them, but every day we remember their service to the America we love because of the freedom that endures,” Hutchinson concluded, reflecting the sentiment shared by many on this solemn day of remembrance.
