Accordingly the 60's icon, "defined American culture to billions of adoring fans around the world. Elvis fused gospel, country and rhythm n blues to create a sound all his own selling more than a billion records." Six other recipients were also awarded the Medal.
Turning back the clock, Mr Trumped recalled an Elvis concert he attended, where members of the audience and fans were screaming and going crazy, ripping the hall apart. To appease the crowd, the usual announcement was made for most Elvis shows, "Elvis has left the building."
Instead, Mr Trump misquoted saying, "Elvis has left the house."
He was clearly in a happy mood. He described Elvis as legendary and the popular Grammy awarded gospel How Great Thou Art was played for a moment.
Congratulations, Mr Trump. One of the best moves that you made. I can hear Elvis fans screaming now.
And Elvis. The medal has been reserved for you, a long time ago. The question was, who's going to give it away.👍
