Harold Terence, 95, was in France on Thursday to receive his honor as part of the 75th D-Day commemorations to mark the anniversary of the greatest military invasion in history. He was given the honor by French President Emmanuel Macron before being congratulated by President Donald Trump and his wife Melania.
The veteran was filmed receiving a high-five from the First Lady and later revealed that he had wanted to hug her but froze up upon meeting her. Terrence said that he wasn't a Trump fan and prefers Nancy Pelosi but he respected the President's office and was 'very overwhelmed by his presence'.
The 95-year-old watched on from the stage on Thursday as Trump paid tribute to the brave men who fought in the Allied invasion of France and described them as the 'very greatest Americans who will ever live'.
The Trumps had flown to France on Thursday to join the leaders of the Allied nations to mark the 75th anniversary. Gathering at the Normandy American Cemetery, Trump joined his wife as they paid their respects to the 9,300 soldiers buried there.
