Trump praises military for keeping US ‘safe, strong, proud’ 

Washington: President Donald Trump has praised the US military for keeping America “safe, strong, proud, mighty and free” and used the Independence Day holiday to thank them for being willing to put their lives on the line in defence of the nation.“Two hundred and forty-two years ago on July 4, 1776, America’s founders adopted the Declaration of Independence and changed the course of human history,” said Trump, addressing hundreds of military families attending a White House picnic from a balcony overlooking the South Lawn of the White House.“But our freedom exists only because there are brave Americans willing to give their lives, to defend it and defend our great country,” added Trump, who was accompanied by his wife, Melania.“America’s liberty has been earned through the blood, sweat and sacrifice of American patriots.”Trump and the First Lady later returned to the balcony towards the end of a nationally televised concert from the South Lawn and stayed for the annual fireworks show on the National Mall.
