A 75-year-old vet had a special message for President Trump during Thursday’s D-day ceremony in France.
President Trump’s eloquent and powerful speech drew praise from two unlikely critics; CNN’s Jim Acosta and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough.
Fox News reported that President Trump’s speech on Thursday honoring the brave Allied fighters who “stood in the fires of hell” on the 75th anniversary of D-Day drew unexpected acclaim from two of his biggest mainstream media critics: CNN’s Jim Acosta and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough.
“This is perhaps the most on-message moment of Donald Trump’s presidency today. We were all wondering if he would veer from his remarks, go off of his script but he stayed on script, stayed on message and, I think, rose to the moment,” Acosta said on CNN immediately following the speech.
Over on MSNBC, recurrent Trump critic Scarborough echoed Acosta’s thoughts.
“[Trump] delivered what, again, I believe is the strongest speech of his presidency,” Scarborough said, noting that it was a “beautiful moment” when Trump acknowledged that many of the troops feel the “heroes were the ones that never came back” but the survivors formed a remarkable generation.

Breitbart reported that President Donald Trump attended a commemoration ceremony for the 75th anniversary of D-Day, and one veteran had a special message for the president.
As Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron took the stage for the event, one of the veterans shouted out, “Hey, you’re our president, too. Come on up this way.”
The audience chuckled as Trump made his way across the stage, greeting the veterans, shaking their hands, and saluting.
“There’s a lot of people back in Pennsylvania who want to vote for you,” the man added as several in the audience applauded.
