"From rewriting our tax code to helping just hard-working Americans get through life, to reshaping our courts, ... to protecting the religious freedom of all Americans, his achievements are too numerous to count", Trump said. A friend and former teammate of the legendary quarterback says the former naval officer and Dallas Cowboy is very deserving of the honor. "I wanted to hear the rest of the song, I don't know why the cut it so short".

Trump also recognized Sen.

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), Maureen Scalia (wife of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia), and Dr. Miriam Adelson after receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom at the White House on November 16, 2018.

The Adelsons are known best for their political activity and support of Israel, but their foundation donated more than $110 million in grants, mostly for the goal of medical research, from 2011 to 2015.

"As mayor of the birthplace of Elvis Presley, it is my great honor to accept an invitation to the White House for the posthumous awarding of the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Elvis Presley", Shelton said. Sheldon Adelson was with Trump on midterm election night last week. Still, Adelson is not the first political supporter to be granted the award by a US president.

President Donald Trump attends a press conference at the White House in Washington D.C., the United States, on November 7, 2018. Some saw Trump's no-show in Belleau Wood as a sign of disrespect to United States soldiers who fought and died in the trenches.


Public Citizen, an American public interest group told the Guardian "it was hard to believe the decision to recognise Miriam Adelson was based on merit". The president then said: "Wow".

The White House said that the nominees were chosen following the same criteria used by previous administrations.

The award is given to individuals "who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors".

Barack Obama honored in his tenure as US President including Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, and the former activists of the civil rights movement John Lewis with the freedom medal.

Miriam Adelson said she is "deeply humbled and moved by this exceptional honor".
