President Trump will be leaving the White House for a visit to Mount Rushmore for an independence day fireworks celebration.
The President confirmed his plans in an interview on Friday. “I’m going to go there on July 3, and they’re going to have the big fireworks, that’s South Dakota.”
President Trump has long wanted the traditional fireworks over Mt. Rushmore to be continued. The event has been canceled for eleven years because of fire concerns.
Trump said, “President Trump and I believe that our nation’s founding should be celebrated with the same pomp and parade that John Adams described in 1776, and having a fireworks display at Mount Rushmore once again will be an incredible spectacle for the American people to enjoy.”
This move by Trump also signals his confidence that the coronavirus pandemic will be under control and independence day celebrations will be on.
President Trump is a patriot and an optimist. He understands the power of pageantry to give a boost to American morale. Let’s hope that the pandemic is a thing of the past by July, and if not, that it is on its way to being so.
