President Trump Said Revolutionary War Troops 'Took Over the Airports' in His Fourth of July Speech
President Trump made a bit of a historical blunder during his Fourth of July “Salute to America” speech Thursday when he said that the Continental Army “took over the airports” from the British during the American Revolutionary War in the 1770s.
During his hour-long speech at the grounds of Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C., Trump stayed largely off politics.
Trump praised the Americans’ military efforts in the war against Great Britain. “Our army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports, it did everything it had to do, and at Fort McHenry, under the rockets’ red glare, it had nothing but victory,” he said.
