  • US celebrates Memorial Day amid coronavirus restrictions

    Washington, May 25 (EFE / EPA) .- The traditional three-day weekend celebration of Memorial Day continued on Monday with concerns over images of huge crowds jamming beaches amid the coronavirus pandemic and controversial calls by President Donald Trump for Americans to resume their normal activities, even as virus deaths approach 100,000 and have not yet peaked in many parts of the US.Early on Monday, Trump made the expected presidential visit to Arlington National Cemetery along with first lady Melania Trump to pay tribute to the US soldiers who have lost their lives in the country's wars.However, and despite supposedly being a day on which Americans unite in paying their respects to the war dead, Trump remained true to his aggressive nature on his Twitter account by threatening to move the Republican National Committee - scheduled for late August - from North Carolina to another state unless he is "guaranteed" that there will be a massive crowd at the event despite fears over the coronavirus pandemic.
