RENO, Nev. Aug.23, 2017— President Trump called for unity in a speech at the American Legion’s 99th National Convention here: “It is time to heal the wounds that have divided us, and to seek a new unity based on the common values that unite us,” Trump said, speaking before more than 5,000 members of the largest veterans group. “We are one people, with one home and one flag.” “We are not defined by the color of our skin, the figure on our paycheck or the party of our politics,” Trump continued. Trump argued that “shared humanity,” “citizenship and patriotism" could heal the nation’s divides political and racial divides, and he heralded the work of the Legion in promoting American values. And in Reno, Trump appeared to stick focusing on his administration’s efforts to improve services for veterans, a key focus on the nation’s largest veterans organization.
