From the White House pool report, where President Trump is visiting Arlington National Cemetery to pay his Memorial Day respects at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

"Shortly before 11 am after the sun emerged and dissipated the clouds, POTUS arrived near the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. He went into position, then held his hand over his heart as the National Anthem played."

In a speech that followed, the president gave special thanks to Gold Star families, including DHS Secretary John Kelly's son Robert, who was killed in Afghanistan.
