ABC, CBS and NBC refused to even cover President Trump’s Salute To America, so it’s no surprise that they won’t show you the MASSIVE crowds in attendance.
But don’t worry – we will.
Take a look at this:
People as far as the eye can see!
And that's despite rain and bad weather.
Didn't matter, they came out in force!
And this from the parade:
And here is full video with tons of crowd shots.
People stacked in there as full as possible!
Here's what Fox News reported of the event:
With the Lincoln Memorial in the background and flanked on both sides by camouflaged Bradley fighting vehicles, President Trump used his “Salute to America” speech Thursday evening to praise the men and women of the Armed Forces and American exceptionalism.
Despite concerns from Democrats that he would use the Fourth of July event as a virtual campaign rally, Trump struck a largely nonpartisan tone during an address that paid tribute to the military by telling its history from the days of America's founding – praising the spirit that “runs through the veins of every American patriot.”
"Today, we come together as one nation with this very special Salute to America," a smiling Trump said. "We celebrate our history, our people, and the heroes who proudly defend our flag — the brave men and women of the United States military."
From George Washington leading the Continental Army to the Apollo 11 moon landing, Trump rattled off a list of American accomplishments and inventions in the name of freedom, while slipping in a boast about his administration's accomplishments.
"Americans love our freedom and no one will ever take it away from us," Trump said to chants of "U-S-A." "Our nation is stronger today than it ever was before, it is stronger now, stronger than ever."
The president took the audience, on this rainy day in Washington, through the history of the Armed Forces, telling tales of valor on foreign soil in gripping detail.
"Together we are part of one of the greatest stories ever told -- the story of America," Trump said. "It is the epic tale of a great nation whose people have risked everything for what they know is right."
"We're Americans. Nothing is impossible," Trump said.
Trump followed his speech with an individual honor to each branch of the U.S. military -- Coast Guard, Navy, Army, Air Force and Marines.
Despite the cloudy skies, Trump's speech was punctuated by flyovers by military aircraft ranging from the Air Forces F-22 Raptors and B-2 Stealth Bomber to the Navy's F-18 Super Hornets and Army Apache helicopters.
"Today, just as it did 243 years ago, the future of American Freedom rests on the shoulders of men and women willing to defend it," Trump said. "As long as we stay true to our cause — as long as we remember our great history — and as long as we never stop fighting for a better future—then there will be nothing that America cannot do."
"We will never forget that we are Americans, and the future belongs to us," he said. "We share one home, one heart and we are all made by one almighty God."
Trump's speech was capped off with a performance by the Navy Blue Angels flight team.
While Trump's speech set a unifying tone, the lead-up to the event was marked by controversy – with Trump’s opponents slamming him on everything from the cost of the event to the perceived exploitation of the holiday for a political purpose.
