President Trump’s annual Cinco de Mayo statement lauded “the significant contributions of Mexican Americans to the United States.”

“Today, we honor the heritage of our neighbors to the south, and we celebrate the significant contributions of Mexican Americans to the United States,” Trump said in the statement.

Trump’s statement also praised the “incredible courage and resolve” of the Mexican soldiers who “defended their freedom” against the French in 1862 at the Battle of Puebla.

“On May 5, 1862, General Ignacio Zaragoza’s Mexican forces withstood the French assault on the town of Puebla de Los Angeles, despite being outnumbered and underequipped. The Battle of Puebla remains an important symbol of Mexican bravery and tenacity.” “We also honor the Mexican-Americans whose fighting spirit and patriotism have been influential in shaping the character of our great Nation,” the statement said.

“Melania and I hope everyone enjoys the festivities. Happy Cinco de Mayo!”

While running for president, Trump marked the Mexican holiday by tweeting a picture of himself eating a taco bowl.
