Trump to give Elvis, Miriam Adelson, Babe Ruth, the Medal of Freedom



President Trump will award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to seven people, including Miriam Adelson, wife of GOP donor Sheldon Adelson, and Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), announced the White House on Saturday. Five other recipients include Elvis Presley, baseball legend Babe Ruth, late judge Antonin Scalia to the Supreme Court, former NFL quarterback Roger Staubach and former Minnesota Supreme Court Alan Page. The medal, the highest civilian honor in the country, honors those who have "made particularly commendable contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors" half a century of service in the Senate in which he "sponsored more bills than any other living member of the Congress," the White House said. Doctor and philanthropist Adelson, along with her husband, contributed more than $ 21

million to Trump's 2016 campaign, and the pair also contributed significantly to Republican concerns in the recent midterm elections.
