President Donald Trump awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to seven prominent civilians on Friday but surprised the audience with a special tribute to rock and roll singer Elvis Presley.
The president called Elvis the “True King” of Rock and Roll and paused his speech while Presley’s version of “How Great Thou Art” played on the sound system.
Trump also awarded medals to Miriam Adelson, Utah Senator Orrin Hatch, Justice Alan Page, and Quarterback Roger Staubach, as well as s baseball player George Herman “Babe” Ruth, Jr. and Justice Antonin Scalia.
Hatch is retiring from the Senate after serving for more than 41 years in his position.
“He liked me right from the beginning and therefore I like him,” Trump said about Hatch. “That’s the way it is, I guess I’m not supposed to say it, but that’s the way life works.”
Trump praised Scalia’s lifetime of service and legal contributions, welcoming his wife Maureen, who accepted the medal on behalf of her deceased husband. He also named all nine of their children.
“You were very busy, wow,” Trump said to Scalia’s family. “I always knew I liked him.”
