LIVE at 10:10 p.m. ET: President Trump speaks from Mount Rushmore
President Trump just left for South Dakota, where tonight he will become the first president since George H. W. Bush in 1991 to attend Mount Rushmore’s Independence Day celebration! The stunning fireworks show is returning after a decade-long hiatus.
The President will then return to Washington to host tomorrow’s 2020 Salute to America celebration with First Lady Melania Trump. Tomorrow’s National Mall event will feature one of the largest fireworks displays in history, and President Trump will kick off the festivities with an address to the Nation from the White House South Lawn.
The 2020 Salute to America will be “a patriotic tribute to our men and women in uniform,” Interior Secretary David Bernhardt says.
