The remarks, in which Trump praised U.S. allies such as France and Britain for their role in the D-Day operation, “had to be reassuring” to the nations despite frequent verbal barbs between their leaders and Trump during his presidency, Scarborough added.

Scarborough compared Trump’s remarks to former President Reagan's well-received speech commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Normandy invasion.
