Video: Trump Gives Shoutout to 'Heroes Who Keep America Safe, Strong and Free' in Thanksgiving Message

President Donald Trump released his Thanksgiving message today on Twitter, saying that he was thankful for "the incredible prosperity booming all across our land."

In the message—issued on behalf of "the entire Trump family"—the president read out a tribute to military service members overseas, police officers, firefighters and first responders, saying: "These are brave people, these are great people, these are special people."

He gave thanks to "sacrifices made by the heroes who keep America safe, strong and free."

In an address released to his 55 million social media followers, Trump continued: "We also pause to pray for all of those who have suffered loss this year, especially survivors and families of the innocent Americans who were victims of the horrific and hateful acts of violence.

"And we pray for everyone affected by catastrophic storms and devastating wildfires that have ravaged communities in California. Every American heart is with those impacted by these terrible tragedies." Earlier today, Trump tweeted: "HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL!"

On Tuesday, he took part in the annual ceremony of pardoning the turkey. "Thanksgiving is a time of great American traditions, and today we continue a very special one, when a lucky turkey gets a presidential pardon," he said at the time in the White House Rose Garden.

"That turkey is so lucky. I've never seen such a beautiful turkey."
