At an Independence Day celebration in Florida, Donald Trump, the former President of the United States, questioned his successor's patriotism.
Trump claimed that President Joe Biden was "perhaps the most unpatriotic American president" after his administration cancelled a Fourth of July celebration at Mount Rushmore, South Dakota because of concerns about COVID-19 transmission.
"We had fireworks at Mount Rushmore which were so amazing... and it's wonderful. But then, I saw that they won't allow it to happen again. He said that he believed they did it out of spite to a Sarasota crowd on Saturday night. It's absurd. It's so sad.
TRUMP ON COMPANY’S INDICTMENT: REMINISCENT OF COMMUNIST DIVATORSHIP'
Governor of South Dakota Kristi Noem sued South Dakota Gov. after the National Park Service denied her request to have fireworks at Mount Rushmore on Fourth of July. The U.S. District Court for South Dakota tossed Noem’s lawsuit on June 2. A judge wrote that the fireworks display was "appealing", but ruling in Noem’s favor would be "improper judiciar activism."
Trump claimed that the Left wanted to "cancel the heroes on Mount Rushmore" and joked that they want to replace President Thomas Jefferson's likeness at the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C. with Al Sharpton or Biden.
"It's not acceptable. That was stopped. They were going that direction, so I signed the bill saying, 'If you touch this, you go to prison for 10 years'. Everyone then turned around and went home," he stated in reference to an executive order dated June 2020, which was meant to protect monuments from vandalism.
Trump also attacked Biden for cancelling his 1776 Commission which demanded a "patriotic" education in U.S. schools. He also took aim at the 1619 Project which claimed that the United States was founded with slavery.

He stated, "The mission of all of us tonight is to preserve and defend the legacy of July 4, 1776 and to defend liberty from the radical Left movement which seeks to demolish our heritage and destroy our beloved country."

Biden dismantled Trump's 1776 Commission on his first day of office. Biden seems to have had a different view and nominated critics of critical race theory for the top U.S. government offices.
Biden stated in April that White supremacy is terrorist and would not ignore the threat posed by intelligence agencies.
