The President was flanked by world leaders in Portsmouth, England just one day before he travels to Normandy to mark the turning point of World War II.
“Almighty God, our sons, the pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor. A struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization and to set free a suffering humanity. They will need thy blessings, for the enemy is strong,” said Trump.
“He may hurl back our forces, but we shall return again and again. We know that by thy grace and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph. Some will never return, embrace these Father, and receive them, these heroic servants into thy kingdom,” he added.
“Oh Lord, give us faith in thee, faith in our sons, faith in each other, and faith in our united crusade. Thy will be done, Almighty God, amen,” Trump concluded.

MAKING HISTORY: President Trump Meets North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un
President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un made history Monday, defying decades of simmering tensions and meeting face-to-face in Singapore with the hopes of denuclearizing the Korean peninsula.
The historic summit ends months of back-and-forth, heated negotiations surrounding the peace talks, with President Trump threatening to cancel the meeting after the communist regime harshly criticized several senior cabinet members, including Vice President Mike Pence.

The leaders are expected to have a one-on-one discussion for over an hour, which will then extend into a second hour and will include each nation’s delegation, such as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo -who has already met Kim Jong Un twice.
The stakes for the summit are unprecedented as President Trump attempts to convince Kim to completely abandon his nuclear missile program, with Kim likely seeking security guarantees and large-scale investments should he normalize relations with the United States.

MAKING HISTORY: President Trump Signs Proclamation Recognizing Golan Heights as Israeli Territory
Flanked by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at a joint press conference inside the White House Monday, President Trump signed an official proclamation recognizing the Golan Heights as sovereign Israeli territory.
The Commander-in-Chief signed the order hours after a rocket attack from inside the Gaza Strip destroyed a home outside of Tel Aviv; prompting Netanyahu to cut-short his visit to Washington and return to Israel to oversee his military’s response.

“This was a long time in the making. It should’ve taken place many decades ago,” said the President at the signing ceremony.
Israel gained control of the Golan Heights during the Six Day War of 1967 and officially annexed the region into Israel in the early 1980s.
The international community considers the area “disputed territory” and views development and housing construction by the Jewish State as a violation of international law.
