OMAHA BEACH, France (AP) - President Donald Trump is praising the veterans of D-Day, saying they are "among the very greatest Americans who will ever live."

Trump spoke in France at the Normandy American Cemetery of Colleville-sur-Mer, near Omaha Beach, where the Americans landed on June 6, 1944. Trump said that on that day -75 years ago- 10,000 men sacrificed their lives not only for their fellow troops and their countries but for the "survival of liberty."

Trump says the ground the allied forces captured during the invasion "won back this ground for civilization."
