A recent story from the New York Times claims Donald Trump asked to be added to Mount Rushmore. President Trump called out the newspaper, calling their report “fake news.” But then he said something that will really get the liberals foaming at the mouth. His supporters, though, will be cheering.
You might remember President Trump held a Fourth of July celebration at Mount Rushmore. The event featured a rousing speech, music, and a dynamic fireworks display. Around that time, you could have found numerous supporters posting obviously Photoshopped pictures of Trump’s face on the historic landmark.
All in good fun, right? Not if you’re one of the rabid liberals at the New York Times. They published a story claiming that Trump himself asked about adding his face to the mountain. There is no evidence this was true. As usual, the liberal media couldn’t point to any facts to back this claim. It was yet another attempt by the left to push a false narrative about the president.
President Trump hit back, saying the story was “fake news.” But then he went on to troll his haters in classic fashion.
President Trump claimed that a recent New York Times report that he had inquired about having his face added to Mount Rushmore was “Fake News,” although he was not exactly opposed to the idea…
The Times reported on Saturday that in 2019, a White House aide asked South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem’s office about how a president could get added to the famed mountain sculpture…
“This is Fake News by the failing @nytimes & bad ratings @CNN,” Trump tweeted Sunday evening. “Never suggested it although, based on all of the many things accomplished during the first 3 1/2 years, perhaps more than any other Presidency, sounds like a good idea to me!” [Source: Fox News]
Trump wasn’t about to let this story go by without finding a way to outrage Democrats.
There is no solid evidence he ever asked to put his face on Mount Rushmore. It’s much more likely that Trump-hating writers at the Times just invented the story. Trump debunked their claim, but then speculated that—considering his accomplishments—putting his face beside Lincoln might not be a bad idea.
In just his first term, President Trump made good on a mountain of promises. He’s been building the much-anticipated border wall. Hundreds of miles of advanced fencing and security have been put in place.
He slashed taxes and regulations by the thousands. He’s reduced the size of the federal government. Some agencies, like the dreaded EPA, are half the size they were under Obama. Speaking of Obama, Trump has defanged his failed Obamacare. Trump scored major trade deals, eliminated the Iran Nuclear Deal, replaced NAFTA with the USMCA, wiped out ISIS, and even negotiated with North Korea.
And that’s all for starters. Even during the lockdowns and COVID panic, we are seeing recovery. The country has been adding millions of jobs throughout the Summer month after month. The markets have already rebounded since March. President Trump continues to hold the country together as Democrats seek to tear it apart.
It’s hard to argue with the president’s accomplishments. Even his haters ignore what he’s done to focus on fake news or baseless accusations. Meanwhile, their “best hope” for retaking the White House is a man who refuses to leave his basement—and keeps insulting black people.
Maybe Trump’s face doesn’t need to be added to Mount Rushmore. But if there ever was a president worthy of honoring, it’d be him.
