In the United States, we’re especially grateful for the friendship of so many proud Greek Americans. In my hometown of Chicago — (applause) — you can find them in Greektown, with their foustanellas. (Laughter.) And together, we’ve celebrated Greek Independence Day at the White House. We’ve had some spanakopita and some ouzo. (Laughter.) Greek Americans have worn the uniform to keep our country free. Greek Americans have marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to make us more just. Greek or American, we’re all cheering for Giannis Antetokounmpo — (applause) — who seems to be getting better each year. And if anyone seeks an example of our shared spirit, our resilience, they need look no further than New York City, near Ground Zero, where the Greek Orthodox church of St. Nicholas, once in ruins, is now rising again.
