"President Trump to award his eighth Medal of Honor since taking office to an Army Sergeant who died tackling a suicide bomber in Iraq

• Army Staff Sgt. Travis Atkins, 31, died in Iraq in June 2007 saving three others
• Atkins was attempting to subdue an insurgent when he realized the man was attempting to detonate a bomb strapped to his body
• Atkins immediately tackled the bomber and dived on top of him, in a bid to limit the blast - saving the lives of three comrades
• Trump has handed out eight Medals of Honor since taking office two years ago
• No arts, humanities or science medals have been handed out since September 2016, when Barack Obama was president
