Jack Soden, President and CEO of Elvis Presley Enterprises, accepted the Medal of Freedom on behalf of the Presley family.

President Donald Trump honored Elvis Presley and six other noteworthy individuals Friday with the Medal of Freedom.

Trump moved the embassy in May, and Sheldon Adelson, who had offered to personally fund the move, sat in the front row for the ceremony.

"To protect the sacred heritage of the Jewish faith, Miriam and Sheldon have supported Jewish schools, Holocaust memorial organizations, and helped Jewish Americans visit the Holy Land", Trump said during a reception in the White House's East Room.

"This is what leaves many people wondering whether President Trump singled her out for an award as something of a thank-you for her and husband Sheldon Adelson's very substantial donations to Republican candidates and causes over the years, including ones in support of Trump's election in 2016", said Devine, who wrote a book about the Presidential Medal of Freedom. "Minnesota's Supreme Court justice, he became a Supreme Court justice, and he's nervous with all of these U.S. Supreme Court justices". In the same year he married Maureen McCarthy, a Radcliffe student he had met on a blind date.

Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), retired National Football League quarterback Roger Staubach, former Minnesota Supreme Court justice and National Football League star Alan Page, and philanthropist and donor Miriam Adelson, who is married to GOP megadonor Sheldon Adelson.

His other Medal of Freedom honorees were Elvis Presley, Babe Ruth, Sen. Elvis left the building a little too soon, according to the president. "I will tell you he was something special".

Tupelo Mayor Jason Shelton was in the nation's capital to attend a ceremony at the White House honoring the city's famous son Elvis Presley, among others.
