In a compelling and motivational speech on Wednesday, ex-President Donald Trump presented his ambitious blueprint for the approaching 250th anniversary of the United States, vowing to commemorate this historic occasion with a year-long series of jubilant festivities.
“Three years from now, the United States will celebrate the biggest and most important milestone in our country’s history,” Trump said. “Two hundred and fifty years of American independence. What a great country. And we have to keep it that way.”
At the core of Trump’s vision lies the establishment of a White House task force called ‘Salute to America 250.’
“On day one, I will convene a White House task force called Salute to America 250,” the former president said. “It will be responsible for coordinating with state and local governments to ensure not just one day of celebration, but an entire year of festivities across the nation, starting on Memorial Day 2025 and continuing through July 4th, 2026.”

One cool aspect of this strategy is the inclusion of the ‘Great American State Fair,’ a comprehensive showcase spanning the entire year, showcasing pavilions representing all 50 states.
Trump emphasized his commitment to collaborating with all 50 governors, irrespective of their political affiliation, to transform this concept into a tangible event.
“The Great American State Fair will showcase the glory of every state in the Union, promote pride in our history, and put forth innovative visions for America’s future,” he noted.
As a testament to his belief in American unity and hospitality, Trump envisions the prestigious Iowa State Fairgrounds as the ideal venue for this momentous nationwide celebration.
At the same time, Trump intends to organize the ‘Patriot Games,’ a series of sporting competitions for high school athletes hailing from various regions across the nation. The games will serve as a remarkable showcase of exceptional American skills, sportsmanship, and the indomitable competitive spirit that defines the nation.
Also, Trump intends to reinstate the National Garden of American Heroes, as he planned during his first term, announcing his intention to “sign an executive order to bring back our National Garden of American Heroes, which we want to build very badly, commission artists for the first 100 statues to populate this new statuary park honoring the greatest Americans of all time.”
Extending an invitation of global solidarity, Trump made a heartfelt promise to welcome leaders and citizens from nations around the world to visit the United States in honor of its momentous 250th anniversary.
“America’s tourist industry should get ready because we’re going to have a lot of people coming. It will be a record year,” he said.
He added: “From the very beginning, America has been a country sustained and strengthened by prayer and by our communities of faith,” he said.
