Trump speaks at Mt. Rushmore July 4 despite highway blocked by protesters

President Trump spoke at the Mount Rushmore July 4 celebration with 7,500 people and called out ’left wing mob’. Free face masks were distributed but the crowd was not observing social distancing. 3 hours before Trump’s arrival, protesters barricaded the highway using vans and removed their tires. They held banners that stated, ’You Are On Stolen Land.’

Can’t believe this is even a discussion. Trump was right. First it was Confederate statues, then the founding fathers. Then anything related to American Pride. Mount Rushmore is a national treasure, an icon of our revolution and a symbol for the enlightenment philosophies that this country was built upon. Tearing it down would be like Egyptians asking to tear down the Pyramids because slave labor was used to make them.

“True patriotism springs from a belief in the dignity of the individual, freedom and equality not only for Americans but for all people on earth, universal brotherhood and good will, and a constant striving toward the principles and ideals on which this country was founded.” -- Eleanor Roosevelt 1962

why do conservatives believe that statues are history. is it because they can't read? Rushmore was a native holy site that we promised we would leave to them. that's history.

I mean good on them for the mask, but the social distancing is really imperative to keeping the spread down until we have a vaccine. I understand that people want to go out and celebrate but be responsible so we don’t all suffer from a second wave.
