President Trump posted a series of statements on Twitter Thursday morning, sharing a message to the American people on Independence Day.

The president repeated his commitment to get the basic question, “Are you a US citizen?” on the 2020 census. He tweeted:

So important for our Country that the very simple and basic “Are you a Citizen of the United States?” question be allowed to be asked in the 2020 Census. Department of Commerce and the Department of Justice are working very hard on this, even on the 4th of July!

The president then shared more details on the July 4 celebration event planned for Washington, D.C. on Thursday.  Democrats are protesting loudly against the event. Trump wrote:


People are coming from far and wide to join us today and tonight for what is turning out to be one of the biggest celebrations in the history of our Country, SALUTE TO AMERICA, an all day event at the Lincoln Memorial, culminating with large scale flyovers of the most modern…..

….and advanced aircraft anywhere in the World. Perhaps even Air Force One will do a low & loud sprint over the crowd. That will start at 6:00P.M., but be there early. Then, at 9:00 P.M., a great (to put it mildly) fireworks display. I will speak on behalf of our great Country!
