Trump Honors Miriam Adelson

Miriam Adelson, wife of Sheldon Adelson—chairman and CEO of the Las Vegas Sands Corp. and considered one of the nation’s most powerful Republican donors—has been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

The Adelsons donated $30 million to Trump’s campaign in the final months of the 2016 presidential race and donated $100 million to the Republican Party before the recent midterm elections, according to the Washington Post.

Trump said Adelson is “somebody who’s worked so hard. Doesn’t have to do it, but she does, 24 hours a day, this is what she does. Through decades of innovative research, philanthropy and treatment, Miriam has helped thousands break free from their addiction to drugs and alcohol,” Trump said. “I know the work you’ve done, and you have been truly incredible.”

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters told the Post that Trump used the process previous administrations followed to select his nominees. Selections were coordinated by the staff secretary’s office, incorporating recommendations from the public, relevant presidential advisory bodies, the cabinet and senior White House staff, he said.
