BALTIMORE (AP) — President Donald Trump has honored America’s fallen service members as he commemorates Memorial Day in the midst of a pandemic. He spoke at a ceremony at Baltimore’s historic Fort McHenry, where he declared that no “obstacle, no challenge and no threat is a match for the sheer determination of the American people.” Trump earlier attended a ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. Presidents on Memorial Day typically honor fallen military members by laying a wreath and delivering a speech at the hallowed burial ground in Virginia. But because of the coronavirus pandemic, the ceremony looked different this year. Trump approached a wreath already in place, touching it and giving a salute.
