Cinco de Mayo marks the date that Mexico's army defeated France at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, during the Franco-Mexican War. The victory provided a significant morale boost to the Mexican people and came to serve as a symbol of the country's spirit and perseverance.

But few among them may know the true story behind the popular holiday, some might even believe it's Mexico's independence day, an embarrassingly common misconception. The celebration spread as Hispanic culture grew in the US, getting a commercial boost in the 1980s when restaurants and bars began cashing in on the event.

In many cities in the United States, there are parades and festivities featuring mariachi music, dancing and Mexican food.

The statement echoed Trump's comments a year ago, when he said that the USA honored "the Mexican-Americans whose fighting spirit and patriotism have been influential in shaping the character of our great Nation".
