Orrin Hatch among 7 to receive Presidential Medal of Freedom from Trump

New York Yankees legend Babe Ruth stands in its place in the

The rest of the class includes mega-donor and philanthropist Miriam Adelson, Senator Orrin Hatch, Elvis Presley and Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

Presidential Medals of Freedom are bestowed on individuals, typically Americans, "who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security of national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors", according to the White House.

The other six recipients are Elvis Presley, Sen. In a citation released by the White House, she was lauded for her medical work, her research and her work in combating substance abuse.

Former Minnesota Supreme Court justice and NFL Hall-of-Famer Alan Page is set to receive the nation's highest civilian honor.

Miriam Adelson, 72, is a doctor who is married to the casino magnate Sheldon Adelson.

Rock and roll icon Elvis Presley has been posthumously honoured with the Presidential Medal Of Freedom.

The White House also lauded the accomplishments of Hatch, one of the longest-serving senators in United States history, citing his four decades of legislative accomplishments and his leadership on judicial confirmations. He's also one of few entertainers (even if you include the world of sports) receiving a medal this year, no doubt due to most of the entertainment industry's rejection of Trump, his rhetoric, and politics.

Alan C. Page is a former football player and lawyer.

Page played for the Vikings from 1967 until 1978, and was a member of the legendary "Purple People Eaters" line-up. He practiced law in the off-season and eventually became a member of the Minnesota Supreme Court. The White House also said that it relished in how Presley 'fused gospel, country, and rhythm and blues to create a sound all his own, selling more than a billion records'. Elvis also served almost 2 years in the United States Army, humbly accepting the call to serve despite his fame. Since 1988, his Page Education Foundation has provided scholarships to almost 7,000 students.

Ruth, a seven-time World Series champion, helped make baseball "America's Pastime", launched 714 career home runs and is arguably the greatest to ever play the game.
