Trump honors Harley-riding veterans at White House event


WASHINGTON — Harley-riding veterans burned rubber and blasted Guns N’ Roses at the White House on Friday as part of an event celebrating the nation’s military.

More than a dozen members of veterans service organization AMVETS were honored at the event with President Trump and Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie ahead of the Memorial Day holiday, with Trump praising their service and touting his support among bikers.

In a video of the event, bikers with Rolling Thunder, an advocacy group that aims to raise awareness of prisoners of war, can be seen loudly rumbling through the White House grounds, performing laps of the South Lawn to the tune of “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns N’ Roses.

The president walked onto the Blue Room balcony after Survivor’s 1980s ballad “Eye Of The Tiger” played and he smiled and waved as the bikers tore past him below.

The massive “Rolling To Remember” rally, which attracts hundreds of thousands of riders to Washington each Memorial Day weekend, was canceled this year amid the coronavirus pandemic and will instead be virtual.
