President Donald Trump continued his crusade against protesters targeting statues and national monuments, in a fiery Fourth of July speech comparing the ‘radical left’ to Nazis and terrorists.
Speaking from the White House South Lawn on Saturday during the ‘Salute to America’ Independence Day celebration, Trump struck a combative tone as he doubled down on his attack on left-wing activists and members of the media, who he accused of slandering the legacy of war heroes.
‘American heroes defeated the Nazis, dethroned the fascists toppled the communists, saved American values, upheld American principles, and chased down terrorists to the very ends of the earth,’ he said.
‘We are now in the process of defeating the radical left, the Marxists, the anarchists, the agitators, the looters and people who in many instances have absolutely no clue what they are doing.’
Despite calling for ‘unity’, Trump did not hesitate to use the country’s birthday as an occasion to assail segments of the country that do not support him and said demonstrators were not ‘interested in justice or healing.’
Carrying on a theme he pounded on a day earlier against the backdrop of the Mount Rushmore monuments, he went after those who have torn down statues or think some of them, particularly those of Confederate figures, should be removed.
