U.S. President Donald Trump memorialized fallen soldiers from Fort McHenry National Monument in Baltimore on Monday, where he also thanked National Guard members working on the front lines to stop the spread of the coronavirus, which he has long referred to as a war-like 'invisible enemy.'

"Once more the men and women of the United States military have answered the call to duty and raced into danger.

Tens of thousands of service members and National Guardsmen are on the front lines of our war against this terrible virus, caring for patients, delivering critical supplies, and working night and day to safeguard our citizens.

As one nation, we mourn alongside every single family that has lost loved ones, including the families of our great veterans." A New Jersey Army National Guardsman became the first U.S. military service member to die from the coronavirus in late March.

Trump's speech comes as he pushes to reopen the United States and increases his own activities outside the White House following the easing of confinement measures nationally.

US was doing great until it was hit by China's coronavirus: Donald Trump

Launching another scathing attack on China, US President Donald Trump addressed the second 'Salute to America' on America's 244th Independence Day, saying that the country was doing great until it got hit by a virus that came from China. "The power of tariffs being imposed on foreign lands that took advantage of the United States for decades enabled us to make great trade deals where there were none. Tens of billions of dollars are now paid to the US treasury by the same countries but then we got hit by the virus that came from China," Trump said. He further said, "We're producing gowns, masks, and surgical equipment. It was almost exclusively made in foreign lands, in particular, China where ironically this virus and others came from. China's secrecy, deceptions, and cover-ups allowed it to spread all over the world and China must be held fully accountable." Speaking on the coronavirus vaccines, Trump said, "We are now unbelievably doing well and are testing on vaccines, treatments and therapeutics. I want to send our thanks to scientists and researchers around the country and the world who are at the forefront of our historic effort to rapidly develop and deliver life-saving treatments and ultimately a vaccine. We are unleashing our nation's scientific brilliance and we will likely have a therapeutic and vaccines solution long before the end of the year."

He further said, "We will not allow anyone to divide our citizens by race or background. We will not allow them to foment hate, discord and distrust."
