WASHINGTON D.C. (WTNH) — President Donald Trump presented Rush Limbaugh with the Presidential Medal of Freedom during the State of the Union address on Tuesday night.
Limbaugh has been a staunch Trump ally, who dined with the president at his West Palm Beach golf club.
The conservative radio talk show host announced on Monday that he has advanced lung cancer.
According to the White House, the medal of freedom is given to people who made special contributions to the security or national interests of the U.S. It can also be awarded to those who contributed to world peace, or cultural and other significant endeavors.
