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.
