Former President Donald Trump recently released a video on Truth Social, where he wished Americans a “blessed and joyful” Thanksgiving and praised the pilgrims who went on a treacherous voyage to make it to the U.S. in the 1600s.
“Nearly four hundred years ago the pilgrims gathered with Native Americans to give thanks to their first harvest,” Trump began. “Just over a year before, in September of 1620 the pilgrims set sail on the Mayflower to settle a new land where they could live and worship freely.”
The former president explained that the pilgrims “came to this continent with few resources but rich in faith, courage and dreams,” adding that they were able to survive a harsh winter and enjoy an abundant feast with one another, as reported by the Post Millennial.
“Since then,” Trump continued, “Americans have always remembered the blessings of freedom and the glory of God.”
Trump went on to explain the true meaning of Thanksgiving and why the holiday is celebrated.
“Today we give thanks for all the pioneers, pilgrims, and patriots who have gone before us, and for all those warriors who have kept us safe and free,” he said before sharing the sad fact that thousands of U.S. servicemen won’t be with their families for Thanksgiving because of the southern border crisis.

On Truth Social, the former president also released a post wishing a “Happy Thanksgiving” to everyone, including those who are prosecuting him in court, such as New York Attorney General Letitia James and Judge Arthur Engoron, among others.
James filed a $250 million lawsuit against Trump and his business and Engoron is presiding over the former president’s case and ongoing trial. The state attorney general and the judge have been accused of being politically biased, considering their extensive anti-Trump rhetoric in the past.
In his post, the former president also went after President Joe Biden and today’s weaponized Department of Justice (DOJ), along with “all of the other Radical Left Lunatics, Communists, Fascists, Marxists, Democrats, & RINOS, who are seriously looking to DESTROY OUR COUNTRY.”
“Have no fear, however, we will WIN the Presidential Election of 2024, & MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!” the former president concluded.
