Clip: 07/04/2019 | 3m 14s

President Trump took the stage at his “Salute to America” event this evening. Although there was some apprehension over his speech would be political, his remarks primarily focused on American history and why he thinks the U.S. is as strong as it’s ever been. Judy Woodruff brings us some of what he had to say, followed by reaction from Yamiche Alcindor, who reports from the National Mall.
