President Donald Trump sang the praises of the US military and American heroes of the past two and a half centuries on Thursday, the Fourth of July -- avoiding politics during a rousing Independence Day speech in Washington.
"What a great country," Trump exclaimed in an address saturated with patriotism and exceptionalism. He added: "For Americans, nothing is impossible."
As combat aircraft, including the rarely seen B2 stealth bomber flew overhead, Trump spoke to an audience of tens of thousands on the National Mall in Washington. President Trump used the traditionally politics-free holiday to deliver shoutouts to each arm of the military, as well as singling out first responders.
