WASHINGTON (AP) — As thunderstorms threatened, President Donald Trump sped through a V-J Day speech during a visit Wednesday to Wilmington, North Carolina.

The president trumpeted American strength but also took some swipes at Democratic rival Joe Biden.

Trump appeared before a World War II-era battleship to declare the port city of Wilmington a World War II "Heritage City." He pointed to a bolt of lightning and said it was God saluting the event.

He honored war veterans, including 97-year-old Hershel "Woody" Williams, the sole surviving Marine from the war to receive the Medal of Honor. The West Virginia native fought in the Battle of Iowa Jima in the Pacific.

Williams traveled to North Carolina with the president aboard Air Force One.

Trump said the veteran is "100 percent sharp."

And then referring to Biden, Trump said: "I know a 78-year-old who's not so sharp."
