Trump at Mount Rushmore

Trump at Mount Rushmore

In the vicious culture war that is dividing our nation, President Trump has taken the side of the United States. This is what I get out of Trump’s speech at Mount Rushmore last night in South Dakota. For this — for his advocacy of the United States in the culture war — Trump will never be forgiven by the our cultural arbiters. This is what I get get out of the absurd AP story “Trump pushes racial division, flouts virus rules at Rushmore.”


Not having seen the speech last night, I wanted to take it in with my own eyes. Below is the video of Trump’s remarks posted by The Hill. As I hear it, the speech is a blast of truth asserting a defense of the United States against the cultural revolution that stares us in the teeth and seeks to tear down our country. As I say, for this Trump will never be forgiven by our supposed betters.


I hesitate to identify a highlight. At around 18:30, Trump takes up Lincoln for about three minutes. At around 35:00 Trump recites a roster of American heroes. Do take in the whole thing. It is a blast of truth that is particularly needed this year.
