The celebration of 4th July has been the talk of the town for many days as President Trump predicted it as ‘”one of the biggest celebrations in the history of our Country”. Many critics, experts and opposition leaders were concerned about the expenditure done to organize the event and few other were pointing this event as ‘Trump’s political event’ but now when the event has ended up then people are talking about the speech of President Trump and the magnificent firework. Earlier, the people were excited to see the armored vehicles in the static display but their small number may have disappointed them on 4th July.
President Trump took this opportunity to show his patriotism to the people of the country and to make them feel proud of their country. In his 45 minutes long speech at Lincoln Memorial in Washington behind the bulletproof glass, he said “Our nation is stronger today than it ever was before. It is its strongest now.”
He further said, “We will never forget that we are Americans and the future belongs to us.” He further added in his speech, “Future belongs to the brave, the strong, the proud and the free. We are one people chasing one dream and one magnificent destiny.”
President Trump delivered his speech near to the place where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous ‘I have a dream’ speech and this time the Trump’s tone was more optimistic than his usual tone. Trump’s speech had many historical references like Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, the Wright Brothers, and others. He did not leave a single chance to make the people of the US feel proud of their country.
The 4th July firework Air force performance were the highlights of ‘Salute to America’ and in the crowd, few people were also holding Trump ‘baby balloons’. At the end of his speech, the military band played, “Proud to Be an American.” The president shook hands with some military officials after the completion of his speech.
