fireworks, Barbecue, and Parties want to leave until the next Morning – if there's one thing the Americans do not spoil, then it is the 4. July. Who doesn't want to celebrate, for political reasons, the independence day, celebrates the "national BBQ Day", as the "New York Times"columnist Charles Blow and many others formulated it in social media. This year, however, nothing is as always.

Trump: the fight against"fascism of the left"
trump's speech drew on what he had said on the eve of South Dakota. He would never allow an "angry Mob" statues across the country, tear down, and thus attempts to "our history, to extinguish, to indoctrinate our children or our freedoms, trample," the President said.
At Mount Rushmore, he had complained that there was a "merciless campaign", which was busy with the history of the "values" of the Americans to wipe out. The "most Holy" monuments of the Nation are threatened. In the past few weeks, city administrations and institutions, monuments for slave had reduced their holder, of the Confederate generals, and Spanish conquerors, the last one about a statue of Confederate General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson in Richmond, Virginia. The activists had damaged the statues and overturned.
Trump called in two days, protesters demanding the removal of such monuments, and for weeks against racism and police violence on the streets. They had "no interest in justice or reconciliation," he said in Washington. In Mount Rushmore, he had declared, of being in a battle against a "new fascism of the left" and a cultural Revolution from the left wants to make the American Revolution to undo.Updated Date: 05 July 2020, 10:20
