Team Trump ~ Day 4, Commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of D-Day at Normandy.

No words can explain the impact of a personal visit to Normandy.
World leaders arrived to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Allied Invasion. Amid the swirl of media, prayers, laying of wreaths, and festivities, let’s not forget why we gather…. and why we chose to fight.
Here is a map to get you oriented.
Our President Trump and President Macron of France will be at: Location: Colleville-sur-Mer (Calvados) 🇺🇸 🇫🇷  Link
– 11:00 am: Franco-American binational ceremony at the military cemetery, in the presence of US President and France President.

Notice how many 90+yr old veterans still stand for our National Anthem.


Here is the link from EURONews, a good smooth stream. It’s about 90 minutes long and activity starts at about 24 minutes when Presidents Macron and Trump appear:
President Trump’s speech is moving. Husband broke down and cried three times.

Today President Trump stood in the American Cemetery and Memorial above Ohama Beach, where 2,000 of his countrymen lost their lives, and described it as ‘Freedom’s Altar’ during a poignant ceremony where he hugged US veterans and President Macron.

He said: ‘On these shores on this day 75 years ago, ten thousand men shed their blood – and thousands sacrificed their lives-for their brothers, for their countries, and for the survival of liberty’.

In an extraordinary moment President Trump stopped his speech to embrace veteran Russell Pickett, 94, who was a 19-year-old private during the landings at Omaha, telling him: ‘Russell Picket is the last known survivor of the legendary company A. Today, believe it or not, he has returned once more to these shores to be with his comrades. Private Picket, you honor us all with your presence.’

President Macron whispered in Mr Pickett’s ear and helped him to his feet before the leader of free world hugged him. Link

With hundreds of D-Day veterans on the stage, President Trump presented 5 Americans to President Macron, who awarded them the Legion of Honor. The man in the light Khaki Jacket is wearing a hat, denoting his participation in The Battle of the Bulge, all he way to Berlin. Could have been my Father-in-law, who landed at Omaha, survived, and went all the way…….

This is the beach at Arromanches or GOLD Beach.


Back in Britain, Prince William spoke at the National Arboretum in Staffordshire.

The monument at the National Arboretum lists every service member killed since WW2. William laid a wreath.
June 6, 1944, at 6:26AM, the first soldier set foot on French soil to begin the campaign. Many paratroopers from the 2nd and 101st were already in the air. Don’t ever forget the paratroopers. This guy is 97years old. He parachuted into France on D-Day and he did it again YESTERDAY.

Utah Beach –
Sword Beach
GOLD Beach

Omaha Beach
Juno Beach

The logistics of today’s events across all beaches are mind-boggling, but nowhere nearly as difficult as it was on June 5, 1944, trying to get across the channel.
Remarkably, the day was devoid of POLITICS and nastiness.
Yet one veteran couldn’t help himself. He was too excited to see our President. THIS guy is from Pennsylvania, and told the President he was voting for him in 2020.
Trump’s the MAN……. yet poised enough to stop and thank the brave men and women of D-Day, and thank GOD for the success of Operation Overlord.
hes the man
May we never forget WHY we fought……

“The logistics are mind-boggling, but nowhere near as difficult as it was on June 5, 1944, trying to get across the channel.”
I have nothing but highest respect for the men who faced down evil that day. They are all in our eternal gratitude.


Not nearly as long as this day was 75 years ago, when the literal fate of the free world was held in the balance.


It most certainly and inarguably was.comment image


Remember… the time this photo was taken, the Germans had been preparing coastal defenses for this day for YEARS….comment image


That region of France is stunningly beautiful. Hub & I were able to visit Omaha Beach on Memorial Day one year, and the American cemetery was a vivid reminder of what we sacrificed.
I cannot imagine the emotion, and hopefully healing, for the veterans who have journeyed to their personal battle sites in the years since the war ended. Surviving with PTSD and survivors’ guilt was as difficult – albeit in a different way – as those who never came home.
Tomorrow is our day to pay tribute to every single man & woman who fought for our liberties.


You can catch a bus from Paris – about a two-hour trip with a stop at a very somber and authentic small Holocaust museum, then the beach. I highly recommend it.
The French gave land to USA, Great Britain and other allies for cemeteries. There are cemeteries in various French regions.. (we visited another beautiful American cemetery outside Florence). The lands are considered US soil, not French, and are maintained by American personnel. They very much resemble the military cemeteries here in the USA.
The only foreign country the French did not donate land for cemeteries was to the Germans.


I did not know that detail that is was US land. Thank you for sharing Alison.

This speech brings tears to my eyes. When Reagan speaks of the boys of Pointe du Hoc I’m reaching for tissue.


From the coverage on Laura Ingraham’s show…
Our guys had been sitting offshore, in choppy waters, for 48 hours before the Landing…and most of them were sea sick when they went ashore.
It’s hard not to get teared up, thinking of what they went through.


There was horrendous carnage – as the transports dispatched their troops into the shallow water where multitudes were killed before they made it to shore, or hit as soon as they made it to shore. Those who followed had to run right over and through their wounded and dead mates, while trying to shoot their weapons amidst the massive onslaught from the Germans entrenched in hillside bunkers.
The bunkers are still there. It is very easy to visualize the tactical advantage the Germans held while perhaps the strategic advantage was ours. Nevertheless our strategic advantage was planned knowing full well we were sending our men onshore where the casualties of masses was an accepted consequence of the battle plan.
In hindsight, it was truly barbaric. But all war is when you get right down to it.
The more success President Trump has waging economic war, the better our chances of avoiding military action, all while fending off ‘our very own’ salivating neocons and pimps of warfare at every turn.


Reposting from the Ireland trump visit thread to here::
They are showing the Service of Remembrance on tv taking place at Bayeux Cathedral in France. T. May and Prince Charles are there participating.
The entire service is quite regal


Yes PDJT and FLOTUS have disembarked the jet and are on the tarmac in France!!!


Wait that was a replay- they are now showing him at the cemetery and paying his respects….


Pres Trump just gave a Great Speech!
It was amazing.
He and Macron, plus the two First Ladies, are going through the crowd of D-Day Veterans now, shaking their hands.


Woa !!
What an incredible speech by President Trump:


Agreed Wheatie and Eilert- that speech was a stunner. When our President was giving out the medals with President Macaron I was just tearing up at the complete honor and reverence and personal interaction that PDJT was giving them.
Not to take away from that moment but I was laughing at Macron completely copying every arm and shoulder touch Gesture that the President would do… literal copy cat…..


Heheh, that little Macron boy was a hoot! 🤡


Did you see the facial reaction trump directed towards Macron when Macron was finished with his speech? An amused ‘Nice job! Not bad (for your level of competence)’…. then followed by a slight smile and a ‘Get Ready… how the Lion roars now’ as he gets up to walk to the podium to do his own speech.
epic …. everyone needs to watch the two speeches – and the reaction of the veterans as our president gets up … they were reinvigorated and more alert for PDJT, after sitting for ages and under blankets (poor things, they are cold in the breeze) and patiently listening to Macron and some unsuccessfully fighting off droopy eyes….


Absolutely- undeniably


Interesting that Brigitte Macron is wearing all white…
White is what the Chinese wear at funerals and for mourning.


I was looking at that and wondering- because I thought- ‘how fitting that Melania is wearing black (ie for a somber occasion)’…. and BM is wearing … wait white??
Almost similar lines – but white vs black…. and at first it triggered ‘from dark to light’ Q posts, but I couldn’t figure out the puzzle and then just settled into the ceremony of it all….

Deplorable Patriot

One of my mother’s uncles was shot in the invasion. His grand-daughter wears his Miraculous Medal that he wore at the time and has the Rosary he carried when they went in. She will not part with them.


Wow, Ray, 98yrs old, 4th Purple 💜, 3rd Silver ⭐️. One of 6 of boat of 31 to survive beach!! We salute you!!


POTUS: Americans can do anything because… They know America is a noble nation, with a virtuous people, praying to a Righteous God.


Love the planes, with the red, white and blue exhaust streams!! 👏👏🇺🇸



Laura Ingraham interviews POTUS on tonight’s show.

JW in Germany

When President Trump went over and hugged Private Russel Pickett….so real….so human….
How can so many people have hate in their hearts for that man?

JW in Germany

I do my best not to hate the people who know that President Trump is not the evil person they PURPOSELY portray him to be—but, they make it ever harder for me…….


This was apparently done a few years ago to commemorate D-Day.
Very poignant


Hey guys, just wanted to pop in after just listening to that speech. Wow, had to stop drilling for a minute to let my eyes dry up. Hope ya’ll are having a great day!


Very best to you, DrillerElite!


A sweet moment today at Normandy – watching the faces and the lights in the eyes of the elderly D Day Veterans as our lovely sweet First Lady approached to greet them.
As old as they are – they recognize feminine grace and beauty at its best and fullest – near perfection!


I rescind that scold Miss Daughn. She would’ve read a speech and begrudgingly, FAKELY shook hands with FAKE smile, no sincerity whatsoever! Oh, and don’t forget the hobknobbing with elites. LOCK HER UP!!!

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

It would have been, they risked (and too often, gave) their lives to fight fascism…only to have a fascist commemorate the event 75 years later.
Who would have won the war? Freedom or Despotism?

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

We escaped by the skin of our teeth. It was in fact a close election–a hundred thousand votes the other way, out of 65 million, would have tipped us into the abyss.


Ice Cold hildabeast would have been shaking down everyone she could via slick willy BS speeches.


Daughn, Thank you for posting these articles for each Day, and a half day:-) of President Trump’s trip. Greatly appreciated.
Today’s, particularly a treasure… D-Day, one of America’s pivotal days, me thinks. Fortunate we had great leadership those days. Blessed beyond words for The Greatest Generation fortitude and commitment to Spirit of Freedom…America.
Have visited three American National Cemetery’s. Golden Gate National Cemetery. Great Grand Father, Grand Father and Father interred there. Arlington probably a dozen times. Recently cousin interred there. American Cemetery Manila. Each visit to American Cemetery’s is a humbling experience. The Men and Women who gave their lives, for me, each of us, to protect and preserve America. Heartbreaking.
Educational also. American Cemetery has a detailed “War In The Pacific”, murals I guess we’d call them. IIRC, sort of like the WWII Memorial in DC. War in the Pacific on one side. War in Europe / Africa, on the other side.
Some day, if I am fortunate, visiting the American Cemetery at Normandy, would be humbling, breath taking, educational, and a memory, I’d always treasure.

Plain Jane

I just posted the in the PT Speech in Normandy thread, but maybe I should have posted it here so, here it is.
“Here are excerpts from letters DH’s father wrote from England to DH’s mother here in the states.
June 6, 1944:
Hello Hon,
Well that D day has finally come and suppose you know more about it than we do because these Englishmen wouldn’t stop a program on the radio to tell about anything even if the world came to an end. …
June 7, 1944
…News still seems to be good about the invasion and hope it continues that way….
Also June 7, 1944 (second letter for this date)
We did know that there was more planes going out the last two nights so naturally we had an idea something was up. It is just a continuous roar all the time day and night now from the planes going over. I woke up a dozen times last night from the roar and it is a pretty sight to look in the sky and see thousands of planes. You have no idea what it looks like and I mean those planes are giving them plentyy of hell over there with very few losses considering the amount of planes going over.
Wish I could tell you more about different things, but I can’t. I guess the main thing to you is that Iam not in it, and it will be quite a while before our outfit would go over there so please take my word for it and don’t worry….
I can’t see how Germany an last long with whatthis invasion army has to back them up, because I have seen plenty while driving around through England that you couldn’t believe unless you saw it with your own eyes. It is wonderful is all I can tell you now.”


Thank you for doing this.
I’ve not had time before now to catch up.

[…] Q Tree has full coverage, including this 90-minute video of the day’s […]
