Several news agencies are reporting that President Donald J. Trump did not give a unifying speech at the base of Mount Rushmore Friday. “Trump Uses Mount Rushmore Speech to Deliver Divisive Culture War Message,” a headline from The Washington Post read. “Trump tries to drag America backward on a very different July 4th,” CNN reported. The UK’s The Independent ran with this headline: “US president delivers angry Mount Rushmore speech,” while the Democratic Coalition blasted the speech as “boogaloo-inspired,” a term for the far-right.

In the speech, Trump defended America, saying, “Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values and indoctrinate our children. Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders, deface our most sacred memorials and unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities.” Trump described the “dangerous” movement as “a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted and punished. This left-wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American Revolution.” He went on to say: “We will expose this dangerous movement, protect our nation’s children, end this radical assault and preserve our beloved American way of life.” If you haven’t seen the speech, you can watch it here.

After Trump’s speech, CNN reported: “… when many Americans are wrestling with the racist misdeeds of the country’s heroes… their commander-in-chief is attempting to drag America backward — stirring fear of cultural change.” Other outlets had similar criticisms. In contrast, the said Trump’s speech was, “condemning protesters for tearing down monuments to America’s founding generation.”

As Trump’s impassioned speech has sparked controversy, we wanted to know what you think.

  1. Unless you are an asshole that hates America, President Trump’s speech was in no way divisive. It spoke to EVERYTHING this country should stand for and upon which it was founded.

  2. It’s only “divisive” if you’re un-American. If you don’t like his message. If you believe is a Marxist/Socialist society. If you expect everything for free.

  3. It’s no surprise that the Dems & their hold on the media would spread negativity. The Presidents speech was inspiring; and held the lawless, the corrupt and the naysayers accountable. This is OUR land and it will not be given up to fit someone else narrative. Trump 2020🇺🇸

  4. The speech at Mt Rushmore was inspirational and reassuring that he has the back of the people who don’t want to see our country’s history erased! We all need to stand up to the mobs who are the minority but currently have the loudest voice.

  5. Did anyone expect MSM give Him a 👍.
    For Me, it was one of the BEST 4th of July I’ve ever seen. My Rushmore in the backdrop, Jets formatting over our ForeFathers, the left must had breakdowns. Our PRESIDENT KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK LAST NIGHT. ONE OF THE BEST SPEECHES TO DATE. GOD BLESS AMERICA

  6. Excellent heart felt speech. Wish all these American born Marxist would take a one way ticket to Cuba. We are patriots who love our nation and our President. Signed Christian Black Female

  7. Awesome speech! Inspiring and full of the hope that we will not lose this great land to Facism or Marxism. Trump 2020🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  8. Pres. Trumps speech was uplifting and encouraging! I hate to call the Dems/media names but I’m struggling! Sorry can’t help myself. Idiots and totally anti-American. We all need to stand and speak up!! I’m not a protesting kind of person but the good Americans must come together!

  9. The best speech ever! It’s a good way to start off the 4th of July celebrations, It brought hope back into people’s lives with all that is going on in the World! So Amen to that! God Bless the USA !

  10. Fabulous speech! Brought tears to my eyes to see such Patriotism from President Trump & the 7000 attendees!
    God Bless President Trump & God Bless America!!!!🇺🇸❤🙏👍

  11. President Trump was phenomenal. It was totally unifying. And it was just so spectacular the governor there, very smart and beautiful, and his speech was unbelievable. Only the Marxist/communists/demon rats would think there was anything divisive about it. Praise God for President Trump every day. He was telling us in his own way that we have got to start standing up against this because it’s a small percentage compared to us that are doing this. Praise God every day.

  12. Trump was not being divisive, he was speaking the truth all that he stated is happening. The truth hurts, so now the liberal left wing politicians in conjunction with the freedom hating news media are going into over drive to malign and slander the duly elected president of the United States. Totalitarian minded politicians and socialists control a large majority of our news media in this country and unabashedly use it to try and get their radical ideology ingrained into the American people . The sad truth is they are the ones being divisive not Donald Trump the only modern day President that has not taken a salary, but instead donates it to worthy causes. that alone should speak volumes that this president’s heart and thoughts stand for the best interests of this country. Ask your self when was the last time You saw or heard of a politician give something back to the people rather than take?

  13. He was definitely trying to unify ALL Americans. Not at all divisive. He quoted Martin Luther King and brought up a belief in God. What more do the moron Anti American Democrats want?

  14. I watched his speech & thought it was terrific! I am shocked that any American would find it divisive. Reading the way it was reported is just wrong. Obvious how the media wants to get people all worked up. The President said it perfectly for all of us who love this country.

  15. He spoke the truth and the left does not like it. So be it. Our President was awesome as well as the flyover and the fireworks. God Bless our President and the USA.

  16. Very good speech!! Best he’s given this campaign!!! Not even a word about his accomplishments….lol. I found it extremely comforting. You can definitely tell how Proud he is of the USA! Awesome!!!

  17. Divisive is the new addition to racist et al – pffft . They know they are going down and are grasping and gasping .
    It was his best speech ever !!!
    Amazing POTUS!

  18. Divisive? Definitely not, strong and inspiring yes! I listened very carefully and our President delivered the message that we were hoping for and needed to hear. I wanted to be reassured that he has our backs and will continue to protect our Nation against the radical forces that want to destroy it! God Bless our President and God Bless the USA!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🙏🏻

  19. President Trump said every I have been feeling and wanting to say. I love this country and it’s history made me this way. I refuse to allow the negative media into my thoughts. The media is poison to any one that listens to that tripe

  20. The President’s 4th of July speech was inspirational and uplifting. The MSM is divisive, not President Trump!

  21. The truth hurts. Now, when one hears the truth, one either change their ways or they rebel/attack back even more fiercely The media in general is attacking back because they are all marching toward globalization. They prefer Marxism to America the beautiful. I thought it was a wonderful speech, inclusive and full of historical facts. Also showed us Trump is still in charge and his words have meaning unlike the previous POTUS who was full of hot air. #MAGA.

  22. Thank you for saying what myself and I’m sure many others are thinking! He continues to make me proud to be an American. I pray every day that God will continue to give him the courage and wisdom to fight the hatred that surrounds him and Keep America Great!
