International leaders along with World War II veterans are commemorating the 75th anniversary of D Day on the southern coast of England to honor the Allied soldiers who helped liberate Europe from Nazi Germany.

6 June 1944 #DDay was one of the most significant turning points in the six-year war. 156,000 allied troops 6,000 ships.

D Day has nothing to do with Donald, but I won't try explaining it. President Donald Trump concludes his three-day UK trip with a commemorative ceremony honoring the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.

Donal Trump joins Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles and hundreds of World War II veterans at Southsea Common in the city of Portsmouth, an important embarkation site in the massive operation. The somber ceremony is a stark contrast to the angry reception Donal Trump got from protesters during his trip.

Crowds flew a blimp dubbed "Trump Baby" near the Houses of Parliament, while Donald Trump waded into domestic politics by saying leaving the European Union was “good” for the country and praised the efforts of outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May in trying to ensure a smooth departure from the organization.
