US President Donald Trump has used an Independence Day on Saturday address US’s fight against Nazis and terrorists to his efforts to defeat “the radical left” in the US and accusing social justice protesters of trying to destroy America .Ahead of his speech, Black Lives Matter protesters gathered nearby.
The 4 July holiday marks the nation’s declaration of independence from Britain in 1776 and is one of the most important days in the national calendar.
American heroes defeated the Nazis, dethroned the fascists, toppled the communists, saved American values, upheld American principles and chased down the terrorists to the very ends of the earth,” Trump said. “We will not allow anyone to divide our citizens by race or background. We will not allow them to foment hate, discord and distrust,”
“Our past is not a burden to be cast away,” Trump said at the White House’s “Salute to America” event on the South Lawn. “We will never allow an angry mob to tear down our statues, erase our history, indoctrinate our children or trample on our freedoms. We will safeguard our values, traditions, customs, and beliefs,”
Mr. Trump’s remarks on Saturday followed a speech on Friday night at Mount Rushmore where he highlighted many of the same themes of the “angry mobs” who want to “unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities.”
“Our whole country is suffering through the excruciating costs of having a negligent, divisive president who doesn’t give a damn about anything but his own gain – not the sick, not the jobless, not our constitution, and not our troops in harm’s way,” campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement of Trump. “Even as the outbreak ramps up, he’s admitted to ordering that the federal testing response be watered down.”
