President Trump was one-upped for showmanship by World War II veteran and Pearl Harbor survivor, retired Navy Chief Quartermaster Mickey Ganitch at the White House on Thursday.


Ganitch broke out singing the 1942 hit “Remember Pearl Harbor” as  Trump made his remarks commemorating Pearl Harbor Day.
