President Trump has effectively taken charge of the nation’s premier Fourth of July celebration in Washington, moving the gargantuan fireworks display from its usual spot on the Mall to be closer to the Potomac River and making tentative plans to address the nation from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, according to top administration officials. The president’s starring role has the potential to turn what has long been a nonpartisan celebration of the nation’s founding into another version of a Trump campaign rally. Officials said it is unclear how much the changes may cost, but the plans have already raised alarms among city officials and some lawmakers about the potential impact of such major alterations to a time-honored and well-organized summer tradition. https://www.washingtonpost.com/poli...f428c0-733d-11e9-9eb4-0828f5389013_story.html Why am I not surprised. I don’t think he’ll turn it into a campaign rally per se but I think he will turn it into Trump loves America and is the most patriotic president ever (I’m sure he’ll hug a flag for good measure) and anyone who doesn’t support this event (and by extension, him) isn’t. And his partisans will claim people who don’t support this are unpatriotic and anti-American. Just like they said those who were against a military parade were anti military. That’s how they’ll spin this.
