Donald Trump speaks out against Black Lives Matter protests in Mount Rushmore speech

In his speech at Mount Rushmore president Donald Trump commented on the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests against police brutality and racism.

He stated that "This attack on our liberty, our magnificent liberty, must be stopped, and it will be stopped very quickly" adding comments against people with other political views alleging that "In our schools, our newsrooms, even our corporate boardrooms, there is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance" and claiming that "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".

He further addressed the Mount Rushmore National Memorial, stating: "This monument will never be desecrated. These heroes will never be defaced. Their legacy will never, ever be destroyed. Their achievements will never be forgotten. And Mount Rushmore will stand forever as an eternal tribute to our forefathers and to our freedom."
