Trump to give Dole Congressional Gold Medal

Trump to give Dole Congressional Gold Medal

Dole was grievously wounded in World War II and has helped craft legislation such as the Americans With Disabilities Act.

Dole is a decorated veteran who lost the use of his right arm after being seriously injured in World War Two.

According to the Associated Press, Dole represented Kansas in the House for eight years and in the Senate for more than 27 years.

It's the highest honor the nation's legislative body has for a civilian. Then, in a flash of his trademark wit, Dole said of the tributes, "They're probably not true, but they're kind". Other Congressional Gold Medal Senate honorees include Senators Robert Kennedy, John Glenn and Harry Truman.

Among the dignitaries attending the ceremony will be President Trump, Kansas Rep. Lynn Jenkins and Sen.

Dole, 94, was known as one of his party's best dealmakers, a distinction President Trump has given himself, as well.

Dole supported Trump for president, and Trump signed the honor in September and is expected to speak at the event.

Since that campaign, he founded the Dole Institute of Politics at the University of Kansas.
