President Donald Trump was expected to rail against a "left wing mob" for seeking to "tear down" U.S. history at a celebration with thousands of supporters at Mount Rushmore on Friday (July 3), shrugging off concerns about social distancing during a pandemic.
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he had suggested to some governors to call in the National Guard in the face of mostly peaceful nationwide protests sparked by the death of a black man, George Floyd, in police custody.
US Donald Trump gave a lengthy statement in the Rose Garden at the White House in Washington DC. On the George Floyd protests he said: “Nobody’s ever done for the black community what President Trump is doing. "Hopefully, George is looking down right now and saying this is a great thing happening for our country. It’s great day for him, a great day for everybody. This is great day for everybody."
