On the solemn 80th anniversary of D-Day, former President Donald Trump shared a moment with veterans, offering his gratitude and respect during a call on Air Force One.

“It’s an honor to listen to you. It’s a real honor,” Trump told the veteran on the Zoom call. “I have all the time you want!”

“I hope you stay healthy [for] a good fight in November,” the World War II vet told Trump.

“I’ll make you a deal! I’ll see you in the White House in January,” Trump said. “You’ll be my first group!”

While Trump’s engagement with D-Day veterans showcased a connection to America’s military history, President Joe Biden’s appearance at the 80th-anniversary event in Normandy seemed less assured. Joined by world leaders such as French President Emmanuel Macron, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Biden participated in the ceremony that marked a pivotal moment in World War II—the monumental U.S.-led invasion which is celebrated as the largest naval assault in history.

Despite the gravity of the occasion, however, Biden appeared visibly weary during the event. Video clips from the ceremony show him resting his eyes and displaying moments of stiffness, which was described as “robotic.” The instances have only intensified ongoing discussions about his fitness for office and raised questions about his potential second term, especially as he appeared to exit the ceremony earlier than planned, missing a significant opportunity to greet veterans alongside President Macron.
