    Trump to kick off Independence Day weekend at Mt. Rushmore amid anti-monument push from activists

    By Adam Shaw | Fox News

    President Trump on Friday will travel to Mount Rushmore to mark the start of Independence Day weekend with a firework display — coming at a time of vigorous national debate over America’s history, and when the South Dakota landmark is under renewed scrutiny by activists.

    Trump is expected to speak at the event, and more than 7,000 tickets have been distributed for people to watch it. It is likely to be filled with supporters of the president, but will also attract protesters.

    The ceremony faces a double controversy of being the latest Trump event that critics say puts people at risk, unnecessarily, of spreading the coronavirus. Trump held a rally last month in Tulsa, Okla., and local officials and residents raised fears it could act as a super-spreader for the virus.

    Gov. Kristi Noem has said social distancing and masks will both be optional — although masks will be provided and there will be body temperature screening of attendees.
