For Veterans Day 2019, President Donald Trump attended the New York City Veterans Day Parade, held each year "to honor our veterans, raise awareness of those who serve them, and to salute members of our now serving military".

"Thanks to American warriors, al-Baghdadi is dead, his second in charge is dead, we have our eyes on number three".

"On behalf of all the men and women who have served our nation, and who continue to serve, the United War Veterans Council is honored that our Commander in Chief, President Donald J. Trump, has agreed to join our 100th annual tribute", United War Veterans Council President Douglas McGowan said in a statement.

Trump is the first sitting US president to attend the Parade in his hometown, which he said was "truly an honor".

Trump also used the event to tout the strength of the USA military and the death of Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, saying "al-Baghdadi is dead". "Our veterans risked everything for us, now it is our duty to serve and protect them every single day of our lives".

George Takei has taken the opportunity of Veterans Day to remind the world that President Donald Trump has a less than stellar record when it comes to respecting those who have fought under the American flag.

He highlighted President Trump's efforts to reform the VA as well as medical care for the veterans. Just ahead of the celebration, the president delivered remarks where he thanked veterans for their service and heroism.

Across the country, cities, towns and villages marked the sacrifice of generations of veterans, with Mike Pence laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

"Today we come together as one nation to salute the veterans of the United States armed forces, the greatest warriors to ever walk the face of the earth", Trump said.

"You are America's greatest living heroes", he told veterans in the audience, "and we will cherish you now, always and forever".

"Veterans Day is usually about unity". The address comes days after a court determined the president must donate $2 million to charitable causes including to veterans, after Trump Foundation funds from a January 2016 fundraiser for veterans were allegedly used instead for political purposes.
