David Jackson at USA Today quotes Trump's July 4 speech:
"In June of 1775, the Continental Congress created a unified Army out of the Revolutionary Forces encamped around Boston and New York, and named after the great George Washington, commander in chief. The Continental Army suffered a bitter winter of Valley Forge, found glory across the waters of the Delaware and seized victory from Cornwallis of Yorktown.There was no air travel back then, and the Battle of Fort McHenry was part of the War of 1812.
"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 rocket’s red glare it had nothing but victory. And when dawn came, their star-spangled banner waved defiant."

This will likely be my last text for awhile. My iphone has only 10% battery power & Benedict Arnold has infected all the airport charging stations with Russian spyware. Farewell my love, I'll text you when I can find a new power source. #RevolutionaryWarAirportStories
