“Today, we honor the immortal heroes who landed at Normandy 80 years ago. The men of D-Day will live forever in history as among the bravest, noblest, and greatest Americans ever to walk the earth. They shed their blood, and thousands gave their lives, in defense of American Freedom. They are in our hearts today and for all time,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. 

This week, President Joe Biden, along with other world leaders, gathered in Normandy, France to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the invasion that changed the course of history. 

As Leah noted, according to estimates from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, about 200 World War II vets die each day, making this year’s 80th commemoration likely the last anniversary with a large group of veterans present.
