The Democrat Party on Monday evening tweeted, then deleted, an attack on Mount Rushmore, negatively portraying an upcoming event President Trump is planning ahead of Independence Day at the historic monument to four great American presidents.
The push from the Democrats to target Mount Rushmore comes as leftist activists tear down monuments and statues around the country.
Several on Twitter were quick to rip the Democrats for pushing attempts to destroy Mount Rushmore:
Last week, Trump signed an executive order protecting monuments from rioters and others who would seek to destroy or tear them down.
So that really is the message that I have for South Dakotans that love this mountain and Mount Rushmore for this country, that recognize what it represents to us, and we will do all that we can to make sure that that message is loud and clear, that we will make sure that Mount Rushmore stays as majestic as it is today.”
The Democratic Party's plan to run on a "Mount Rushmore is racist" platform was truly innovative. pic.twitter.com/HA0uxwKWUO
