Democrats Slam Independence Day Celebration at Mount Rushmore Monument

Mount Rushmore
President Trump is scheduled to go to Mount Rushmore Monument for the 4th of July celebrations.

The Democrat Party on Monday evening open fired at President Trump and the scheduled 4th of July festivities at Mount Rushmore Monument.

“Trump has disrespected Native communities time and again. He’s attempted to limit their voting rights and blocked critical pandemic relief. Now he’s holding a rally glorifying white supremacy at Mount Rushmore – a region once sacred to tribal communities,” they tweeted.

Mount Rushmore is reportedly viewed by many as a “symbol of white supremacy”.

The Democrats’ tweet sparked an instant and widespread backlash. The post was deleted after an hour.

A leader of a Native American tribe called for the removal of Mount Rushmore, saying the land belongs to the Great Sioux Reservation and sits in what they consider sacred land.

Julian Bear Runner, President of the Oglala Sioux says tribal leaders were not consulted before the monument depicting the faces of four American presidents was sculpted decades ago.
