Trump honors veterans, talks religious rights

Trump bashes media at rally to honor veterans: 'I'm President and they're not'

Trump began his holiday weekend getaway with another denunciation of the news media, using a celebration of United States veterans and freedom at a Saturday evening rally to thunder that he would not allow the "fake" media to stop his agenda. "We won, and they lost", Trump said. "The fake media tried to stop us from going to the White House".

U.S. President Donald Trump waves at the Celebrate Freedom Rally in Washington, U.S. July 1, 2017.

Trump added that members of the media "destroyed themselves" because they went too far in their harsh coverage of his actions as president.

The president tweeted an edited video of him body slamming "fake news" CNN after his remarks at the rally.

In an apparent swipe at his trouble in applying a travel ban on people from some Muslim-majority countries, he told the gathering the threat of terrorism was "one of the most grave and dire threats to religious freedom in the world today". "Where we are doing record, record stoppage", he said. Hundreds of American flags waved along to the tune in a grand display of patriotism by the concert attendees. "As long our country remains true to its values, loyal to its heroes and devoted to its creator our best days are yet to come because we'll make America great again". "We're also going to start saying "Merry Christmas" again".

"My administration is transferring power outside of Washington and returning it to where it belongs, the people", Trump said.

Anyone who thought President Trump might take the nation's 241st Independence Day holiday weekend off from his unending feud with media was mistaken.

Trump's continued focus on cable television comes as Republicans are struggling to find agreement on a health care overhaul, a key promise from the president and GOP lawmakers.

The president praised veterans from each of the USA military branches and highlighted his administration's work to reform veterans' services.

Trump jetted back to Washington after an overnight trip to his New Jersey golf club and pinned his journalism beef between prepared tributes to members of the armed services and Christians.
