Trump Tells Vets That Pearl Harbor Was a 'Pretty Wild Scene'
President Donald Trump delivered an attempted tribute to World War II veterans Thursday during a speech about Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor.
More than 2,400 Americans were killed during the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941.
Per usual, Trump delivered a self-aggrandizing word salad and managed to diminish the severity of a tragic historical event.
“We are building up the military beyond what you ever thought,” Trump said. “We got depleted. You know what happened over the last, quite long period of time. Not with us. Our budget will be higher than ever before. We’re building that up again.”
