Trump visits Pearl Harbor, USS Arizona memorial
Joint Base Pearl Harbour-Hickam (Hawaii): President Donald Trump paid a solemn visit to Pearl Harbor and its memorial to the USS Arizona, a hallowed place he said he had read about, discussed and studied but had never visited until just before opening his first official visit to Asia. Trump saluted after entering the memorial following a short boat ride with first lady Melania Trump. They approached a wreath of white flowers a gift from the couple and watched as two sailors who stood beside it at attention placed the wreath near a wall of names of the fallen. Pearl Harbor was the scene of a surprise attack by Japan that plunged the US into World War II. After the wreath was placed, the Trumps tossed white flower petals into the waters above the battleship's sunken hull.
