President Trump traveled to Paris last week to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron. The two world leaders discussed counter-terrorism and the current war in Syria.
Trump met several of powerful people in Paris, but the most powerful moment of the entire trip revolved around a little-covered speech that Donald Trump gave to the staff of the U.S. Embassy in France. Gathered at the embassy were families of Embassy workers and 200 American military personnel stationed there.
There were also three guests of honor In the crowd who deserved and received a true hero’s welcome. Mr. Donald Cobb (USS Murphy), Mr. Steven Melnikoff (29th Infantry) and Mr. Joseph Reilly (101st Airborne) had all served to liberate France on D-Day, storming the Nazi-held beaches of Normandy over 70 years ago.
The three American heroes were still able to stand and be recognized when President Trump said of them, “these are real heroes … these courageous men helped to liberate this continent and win the war.”
After his remarks, the president and the first lady went down into the crowd and shook the hands of the World War II veterans, thanking them for their service.

Cobb, Reilly, and Melnikoff also took photos with the military staff of the embassy afterward.
If not for these heroes, France would not exist today as we know it. President Trump gave these heroes all the credits they deserved.
