2020 State of the Union | President Donald Trump recognizes Tuskegee airman from Ohio and his great-grandson

 

 

President Donald Trump recognized a 100-year-old Tuskegee airman named Charles McGee and his great-grandson Iain Lanphier, an eighth-grader from Arizona. “Iain has always dreamed of going to space….He aspires to go to the Air Force Academy, and then he has his eye on the Space Force,” said the president, referring to the newly created branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. The president quoted the eighth-grader as saying “most people look up at space, I want to look down on the world.” The president then introduced Iain’s great-grandfather, one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen, a group of African-American pilots who fought in World War II.
