President Donald Trump was holding a ceremony to sign this year’s Pearl Harbor Day proclamation when he was suddenly interrupted — in the best way possible.
“Remember Pearl Harbor,” Trump said, turning back to a group of World War II veterans. “Have you heard that before a couple of times?”
That’s when one of the veterans, wearing a Hawaiian shirt, broke out into song. He sang the words of “Remember Pearl Harbor.”
“Remember Pearl Harbor as we go to meet the foe. Just remember Pearl Harbor, as we did the Alamo. We shall always remember how they died for liberty. Just remember Pearl Harbor and go on to victory!”
The group at the White House then erupted with applause at the veteran’s impromptu performance.

“He’s a very shy person,” Trump joked. “And a great football player.”
President Trump went on to deliver his address as planned, marking Pearl Harbor Day 77 years after the devastating attack on America.
“Today, our entire nation pauses to remember Pearl Harbor and the brave warriors who, on that day, stood tall and fought for America. As I sign the proclamation making this National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day, I ask that God continue to bless and watch over each of you as very, very special people to our country.”
He turned once again to the men and said, “And God is watching over you. And we appreciate it, thank you.”
Trump then signed the proclamation to another round of applause.
Always remember Pearl Harbor and all our heroes who stood up to defend America's freedom.
