United States President Donald Trump honored the fallen war heroes on Memorial Day. He tweeted a photo showed his visit to the Arlington National cemetery.
The President was accompanied by Melania Trump, the first lady, to reflect on the fallen soldiers who died while fighting for the country. Donald Trump emphasized that they will forever be in the hearts of Americans. He wrote:
"WE CAN NEVER REPLACE THEM. WE CAN NEVER REPAY THEM. BUT WE CAN ALWAYS REMEMBER THEM."

Many Twitter users backed up the President's words with supportive comments. One person even shared that his relative sacrificed his life for the country.
Donald Trump's visit comes after the compulsory lockdown in many states due to the global spread of the novel coronavirus.
Last week, he took a trip to his private Virginia Club to enjoy some leisure, playing golf. So it appears that the restrictions in movement have been relaxed following the President's recent trips.
Amid the Memorial Day holiday, people have been advised not to gather in clusters, as social distancing must still be observed.
The death toll of Americans due to the novel coronavirus pandemic is about 100,000. While some states such as Maryland have eased up the lockdown, Washington DC and Baltimore are still on lockdown, especially since these states have the most COVID-19 cases.
The President will, however, travel to Baltimore's Ft Mc. Henry to proceed with the remembrance of fallen soldiers even after the state's governor, Jack Young, asked Trump to delay the trip.
