***Live Updates*** Trump Holds Mount Rushmore Independence Day Celebration


President Donald Trump will hold an Independence Day celebration at Mount Rushmore on Friday evening.

A fireworks show will follow Trump’s remarks.

Trump and South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem (R) have been ripped for not requiring masks and social distancing at the event. Activists are also protesting the existence of Mount Rushmore, saying it was built on stolen land by a KKK sympathizer, and warning that the fireworks show (the first since 2009) could cause wildfires.
