Tupelo mayor attends ceremony at White House honoring Elvis

Earlier today Trump recognized "seven extraordinary Americans" with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest honor the nation reserves for a civilian.

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. "As mayor, it is my great honor to be part of the effort to preserve and promote the life and legacy of the King of Rock and Roll", Shelton added. Baseball legend Babe Ruth, National Football League (NFL) hall-of-famers Roger Staubach and Alan Page, retiring Utah Senator Orrin Hatch and late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia were among the others given the award. It was coordinated by the staff secretary's office, incorporating recommendations from the public, relevant presidential advisory bodies, the Cabinet and senior White House staff, she said.

The Adelsons gave Trump's presidential campaign a $30 million boost in the final months of the 2016 race. Elvis left the building a little too soon, according to the president.

"Orrin Hatch ... he liked me right from the beginning, so I like him", the President joked, drawing laughs.

They were major proponents of Trump's decision past year to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and formally move the United States embassy there, which the president recognized during Friday's ceremony.
