Trump celebrates July 4 with military show amidst criticism

President Donald Trump celebrated the American independence day by praising the military and reveling in a show of pomp and patriotism on Thursday. He went on to tell the story of American success — not just in politics and war, but also in science, medicine, technology, industry, exploration, culture, and civil rights. Critics accused him of turning into a political event.

Good Trump. Sad that none of the major networks aside from fox will cover this. Truly the bias of these networks knows no bounds.

I was impressed with Trump's speech. No politics. Just love for country. Very refreshing and patriotic and not a single thing that anyone from either side should find any issue with. Good Trump. Happy Independence Day!🇺🇸

Regressive leftist kicked off 4th of July festivities in typical fashion by burning an American flag in front of the White House.

I hope they like the taste of their crow humble pie, because it was nothing like they hoped it to be. It was a great speech and ceremony. Good job Mr President.

This celebration could have been taken from my childhood; a time when the intellectual sewage of multiculturalism, diversity, inclusion & tolerance were confined to a septic tank.

A decade before running for president, Donald Trump said on late night TV that the role of a president should not just be political, but also to be a kind of cheerleader for the country. That's what people love about this president: his actions most often seem to line up with his stated beliefs.

Do NOT read the Daily Mail article. I just wanted to see the turrets, so I could put similar ones on my house. The article mentions the idiotic baby tump balloon five times, but tells me nothing about turrets. Terrible journalism.

I doubt that the commies would be happy even if trump would have called himself the country and the people racist, sexist, etc and then burned the flag, I think these people are angry no matter what. So there is no point listening to them

Sometimes you have to wonder how awesome it would be if you could turn on a "celebrity filter" that would just remove anything to do with celebrities from your news feed. No dumb stories about their divorces, opinions, or any of it.

lol. CNN: Trump critics say he didn't need tanks and planes for July 4 speech. Children, this man has progressed relations with Kim Jeong Un so much that he is the first sitting President to stand in North Korea, a place where South Korean Soldiers lock their arms together to avoid being dragged into by North soldiers when they clash at the border. Quite frankly, he will never care what you think.

Trump 2020 seems obvious. Dems should be trying to figure out 2024.

I'm not American, so I have no part in this. My opinion towards the political parties in the US are mostly indifference. But can anyone tell me who these "critics", are? They seem to be a buzzword in every US media publication, but no source is ever given...
