At Mount Rushmore, Trump digs deeper into nation’s divisions

President Donald Trump arrives to speak to a group of young Republicans in Phoenix

Dozens of protesters faced off with the National Guard and police officers in Keystone, South Dakota on Friday after crowds blocked off a road leading to Mount Rushmore ahead of President Donald Trump's arrival.

Herman Cain, a former Republican presidential candidate, was hospitalized this week after attending the event.

"Our whole country is suffering through the excruciating costs of having a negligent, divisive president who doesn't give a damn about anything but his own gain - not the sick, not the jobless, not our constitution, and not our troops in harm's way", campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement of Trump.

Anyone who is expected to come into contact with Trump has for months been tested for the virus.

Trump on Friday again lashed out against a "left-wing cultural revolution" that he says is teaching American children "that the men and women who built" the country "were not heroes, but that were villains". He did not provide further details.

In the nationwide unrest following the death of George Floyd, a Black man who died in police custody in Minneapolis, protesters in several cities have vandalized the statues of leaders, including Confederate generals who led a rebellion against the United States government during the 1861-65 U.S. civil war.

It comes after the President spent recent days tweeting about monuments and statues being torn down across the US.

"Americans are the people who pursued our Manifest Destiny across the ocean, into the uncharted wilderness, over the tallest mountains, and then into the skies and even into the stars". He said Americans should speak proudly of their heritage and shouldn't have to apologize for its history.

Cyberpunk 2077 Removes Wall-Running Mechanic 'Due To Design Reasons'
However, fans will still get a taste of the game world thanks to upcoming comic book project " Cyberpunk 2077: Trauma Team". That's precisely what a lot of players expect from Cyberpunk 2077 , and the scenario is totally feasible.

Trump, a Republican who has emphasized a "law and order" approach to the demonstrations, has opposed proposals to rename USA military bases that are named after Confederate generals.

During the second annual "Salute To America" event held on the South Lawn, the president drew a comparison between historic American wartime victories and stopping the "radical left". He warned of a far-left agenda that was teaching children in schools to hate their country but said Americans would not succumb to the "web of lies".

Before departing, Pence told CNBC that he and Trump support Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis's decision to reinstate certain restrictions, like ordering bars to stop serving alcohol. "We will not enable them to foment hate, discord and distrust", Trump said.

"A couple of facts though", she said. But in the middle of the 20th century, during the last prominent wave of civil rights activism in this country. "He is running for re-election and his numbers are down".

As in his Friday address at Mt. Rushmore, the president said he had just signed an executive order to create a statuary garden to honor an array of American heroes, including founding fathers such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, Harriet Tubman, Harriett Beecher Stowe, Jackie Robinson and Gen. George Patton.

Concerns about the coronavirus risk and wildfire danger from the fireworks were raised along with those voiced by Indigenous American protesters.

Following protests and the arrest of Native Americans, Trump took to the podium for the Independence Day event and used Young's songs Rockin' in the Free World and Like a Hurricane. They have criticised Mr Trump's visit for increasing the risk of spreading COVID-19 and for celebrating United States independence in an area that is sacred to them.
