Trump: Long Before We Righted the Wrongs of Slavery, African-Americans Gave Their Blood to Defend the U.S.
TRUMP: "This year we honor a special theme, African-Americans in times of war. African-Americans have fought courageously in every war since the revolution. Long before our nation righted the wrongs of slavery and segregation, African-Americans gave their hearts, their sweat, their blood and their very lives to defend the United States, its flag, at its highest ideals. Thank you. Very proud history of African-Americans serving our country in uniform began all the way back at our nation’s founding."
