Speaking before a crowd of veterans and evangelical Christians at the “Celebrate Freedom Rally,” President Trump delivered several newsworthy comments. Some were important and will therefore be ignored by the media. Others addressed the fake news, and will thus be focused on for weeks.

The speech, delivered at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on the 2017 4th of July weekend, first and foremost honored our American heroes.

“We all bleed the same red blood,” Trump said, while defining America as “a land rich with heroes.”

President Donald Trump delivered an Independence Day address honoring American veterans — hundreds of whom came from the Washington, D.C. area to attend the “Celebrate Freedom Rally” at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

“America is a land rich with heroes,” said Trump at the event, which included wounded warriors who are patients at the Walter Reed Medical Center.

During his speech, the president personally saluted World War II veteran Harry Miller for his lifelong service and wounded warrior Luis Avila. Miller enlisted in the reserves at 15, even though he was not old enough to serve. He fought in Europe and in The Battle of the Bulge. Avila, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, was on a fifth deployment when he was wounded, losing his leg, during an intelligence reconnaissance mission.

The President couldn’t help but take a shot at the media once again during the rally, especially in the midst of a storm regarding his Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough tweets.

“The fake media tried to stop us from going to the White House, but I’m president and they are not,” Trump said to cheers and applause.

More newsworthy perhaps, were Trump’s comments updating the situation battling ISIS.

“I was left a mess,” Trump said pointing a finger at the weak and feckless previous administration, but assured the crowd that he was “cleaning it up.”

The fight against ISIS is being pursued with greater urgency, the President assured.

“It’s a whole different ball game folks,” he said.

Also noteworthy, Trump vowed to support and defend religious freedom in America, a mindset sorely missed over the previous eight years of a Democrat presidency.

He then delivered a very poignant line which practically defines the difference between the Democrat and Republican parties.

“Bureaucrats think they can run over your lives, overrule your values, meddle in your faith, and tell you how to live, what to say, and where to pray,” Trump said.

He then added, “In America, we don’t worship government, we worship God.”
