Past presidents have focused heavily on those institutions during their D-Day remarks, but Trump has often accused them of "ripping off" the United States. Excerpts of Trump's remarks indicate he will discuss the importance of U.S. allies.

‘I’d go up and do it all again:’ Veterans in their mid-90s parachute over Normandy, 75 years after D-Day

‘I’d go up and do it all again:’ Veterans in their mid-90s parachute over Normandy, 75 years after D-Day The parachute jump was organized in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the storied military operation on June 6, 1944. Among them was U.S. veteran Tom Rice, 97, one of the first Allied soldiers to land behind German lines in 1944, near the town of Carentan. It was, as Rice recalled to the Associated Press, “the worst jump I ever had.” A bullet struck his parachute. This time, however, his tandem jump near the same town went more smoothly. “Perfect jump,” he told the AP. “I’d go up and do it all again.

"To all of our friends and partners – our cherished alliance was forged in the heat of battle, tested in the trials of war, and proven in the blessings of peace," Trump said. "Our bond is unbreakable."

Trump will likely be one of the last presidents to address living U.S. veterans of D-Day at the site of their heroism. The Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that just under 500,000 U.S. World War II veterans were still living in late 2018. By 2024, when the 80th anniversary of D-Day will take place, the agency projects just more than 87,000 World War II veterans will still be alive.

"What resonates still, 75 years later, is their incredible courage and generosity," French President Emmanuel Macron told the audience. "France has not forgotten."
