Trump tweets Independence Day message: ‘Happy Fourth of July….our country is doing GREAT!’

President Trump on Wednesday tweeted a brief Independence Day message.

He wrote: “Happy Fourth of July….Our Country is doing GREAT!”

The night prior, Trump spoke at length about the strength of the nation and those who made great sacrifices in its creation.

“These patriots knew that their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor were on the line,” Trump said at the “Salute to Service” dinner in West Virginia. “They risked it all for the promise of more of a just and better future. They wanted this great future in this incredible land. They made the same brave choice as countless others who followed in the generations after them: the choice to stand strong for their families, their principles, their pride, and their God-given rights.”

“This 4th of July, let us pledge to renew the bonds of love and loyalty that unite us together as Americans,” Trump continued. “Let us pledge to expand the blessings of liberty, prosperity, and justice to all of our citizens. And let us always remember that we are one people and one nation, saluting one great American flag.”
