After a raucous and resounding reelection campaign kickoff in Orlando, Florida last night, President Trump’s supporters are more fervent than ever.
The incumbent president and presumptive nominee for the republican party in 2020 has been firing on all cylinders as of late, steaming down the tracks toward a possible second term. His supporters have been engaged and enraged by the political potluck of conflicting media narratives, and it has tempered them in ways that few in DC can claim of their own base.
The White House has now released their plans for a Fourth of July celebration, and the MAGA-hat crowd is bound to love it.
The Interior Department on Wednesday revealed the plans after months of deliberations and controversy about how exactly the president planned to put his mark on the traditional capital celebrations.
Interior Secretary David Bernhardt announced the details of the Independence Day celebration, which the administration has dubbed “Salute to America.”
Trump has repeatedly drawn criticism from democrats for his desire to hold a military parade in the nation’s capital, with progressives likening the display to those seen so often in Russia, North Korea, and Iran.
“There is no more appropriate place to celebrate the anniversary of American independence than among the Nation’s monuments on the National Mall and the memorials to the service men and women who have defended the United States for the past 243 years,” Bernhardt said in a statement Wednesday. “For the first time in many years, the World War II Memorial and areas around the Reflecting Pool will be open for the public to enjoy a stunning fireworks display and an address by our Commander-in-Chief.”
He added: “We are excited to open these new areas so that more visitors may experience this year’s Independence Day celebration in our nation’s capital.”
Democrats are condemning the patriotic display, claiming that utilizing the National Mall in such a way somehow politicizes the holiday.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
