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

His son, Christopher, tweeted about his father receiving the Medal of Freedom, saying, "Very proud that my father will receive the Medal of Freedom".

Donald Trump has announced his first recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest United States civilian honor.

Babe Ruth retired from baseball in 1935, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1936, died in 1948 and still isn't done collecting awards.Seventy years after his death, Ruth is among the latest sports figures to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom - the highest civilian award in the United States.

Page is well deserving for the honor with not only his contributions to the community following his football career but his devotion to his legal career where he served as a Minnesota Supreme Court justice for over twenty years.

"With her husband, Sheldon, she also established the Adelson Medical Research Foundation, which supports research to prevent, reduce, or eliminate disabling and life-threatening illness", the White House said.

The White House also lauded the accomplishments of Hatch, one of the longest-serving senators in USA history, citing his four decades of legislative accomplishments and his leadership on judicial confirmations.

The US Open Final: Who Will Make it?
The 34-year-old Swiss won the first two sets 6-4 and 7-5, forcing an injured and struggling Djokovic to retire in the third. If she’s at her best, then she’ll make it to the final and if she performs on the day the title will be hers.

The White House praised the work of Hatch, who has four decades of legislative work during his time as Utah senator.

"Miriam Adelson is a committed doctor, philanthropist, and humanitarian", a White House statement read. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, Miriam Adelson, Alan C. Page and Roger Staubach, the news release said.

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. He practiced law in the off-season and eventually became a member of the Minnesota Supreme Court. 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, one of baseball's all-time greats, was born in Baltimore. His legacy has never been eclipsed, and he remains the personification of "America's Pastime".

Staubach, as a quarterback, won two Super Bowls and made the Pro Bowl six times with the Dallas Cowboys before retiring in 1979.
