Trump Names Medal of Freedom Honorees like Babe Ruth

Trump to give nation’s highest civilian honor to Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch and Elvis and Babe Ruth

The late Elvis Presley, Justice Antonin Scalia, Senator Orrin Hatch and Miriam Adelson will also receive the award.

Among them is prominent Republican donor Miriam Adelson, who nibbled on pizza and mini hotdogs as she watched this week's midterm results with Trump at the White House alongside her husband, casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson.

Miriam Adelson is a doctor, philanthropist, and humanitarian, and has founded two research centers dedicated to combatting drug addiction.

- President Donald Trump is awarding the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest honor for a civilian, to Alan Page a former Viking and Minnesota Supreme Court justice.

This is the first time Trump will bestow a Medal of Freedom as president.


Trump did not name any Medal of Freedom winners in 2017.

The Presidential Medal of Freedom is given to "individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors".

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach was tapped for volunteering to fight in the Vietnam War and the work he has done as a businessman.

Hatch announced his retirement from the senate in January 2018 after serving Utah for 41 years, one of the longest-serving members in American history. She has also supported Jewish schools, Holocaust memorial organizations, and Israeli military personnel and veterans, the White House noted.

Page played 15 NFL seasons with the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears, developing a reputation as one of the league's most fearsome pass rushers. In 1988, he started the Page Education Foundation, which went on to provide scholarships to almost 7,000 students. The White House also said that it relished in how Presley 'fused gospel, country, and rhythm and blues to create a sound all his own, selling more than a billion records'.

Ruth, a seven-time World Series champion, helped make baseball "America's Pastime", launched 714 career home runs and is arguably the greatest to ever play the game.
