10 Must-See Moments From President Trump’s Mt. Rushmore Speech

trump speech rushmore President Trump visited Mount Rushmore on Friday, where he delivered “one of the best speeches of his Presidency,” according to The Wall Street Journal editorial board.

WATCH: Highlights from President Trump’s visit to Mt. Rushmore

“Contrary to the media reporting, the America Mr. Trump described is one of genuine racial equality and diversity,” they continue. The President told the story of America through its many national heroes—presidents such as Washington and Lincoln, as well as other brave patriots such as Frederick Douglass and Martin Luther King Jr.

“No nation has done more to advance the human condition than the United States of America,” President Trump said. “And no people have done more to promote human progress than the citizens of our great nation.”

Here are 10 of the top moments from his speech:

  1. An eternal tribute to our forefathers. In contrast to the far-left mobs tearing down and desecrating monuments across our country, President Trump honored the lives of the four men whose faces are forever carved into Mount Rushmore.
  2. America’s history will not be surrendered. Anarchists and extremists “think the American people are weak, and soft, and submissive. But no—the American people are strong and proud, and they will not allow our country, and all of its values, history, and culture, to be taken from them.”
  3. All men are created equal. Fifty-six patriots, 244 years ago, set in motion “the unstoppable march of freedom” by stating boldly that “all men are created equal.”
  4. Today, we set the record straight. “The radical view of American history is a web of lies—all perspective is removed, every virtue is obscured, every motive is twisted, every fact is distorted, and every flaw is magnified until the history is purged and the record is disfigured beyond all recognition.”
  5. We will not be silenced. “No person who remains quiet at the destruction of this resplendent heritage can possibly lead us to a better future,” President Trump said. No one who loves this country would seek to demolish its legacy.
  6. Our children can achieve anything. “We will raise the next generation of American patriots . . . We will teach our children to know that they live in a land of legends, that nothing can stop them, and that no one can hold them down.”
  7. Made in the holy image of God. Americans believe in equal opportunity, equal justice, and equal treatment for every person. “Every child, of every color—born and unborn—is made in the holy image of God.”
  8. A surprise announcement. President Trump announced the creation of a new national monument, the National Garden of American Heroes. It will be a vast outdoor park featuring statues of the greatest Americans who have ever lived.
  9. The father of our country. “From head to toe, George Washington represented the strength, grace, and dignity of the American people.”
  10. The best is yet to come. “Centuries from now, our legacy will be the cities we built, the champions we forged, the good we did, and the monuments we created to inspire us all . . . America’s future is in our hands.”

Press Secretary: Teaching our children to love America is not a “culture war.”

Greatest President ever doing a great job with no recognition Constantly belittled which just makes a lot of us more determined to vote him in for a second term. Contantly attacked as is his family shows you how small minded and jealous people can be. I pray for him his family and out country every day.

The rioters don’t realize there are reminder how Civil War help them to win their freedom and how we can go forward as one nation. By destroying the statue you show the world you are not proud to be American and not appreciated for the men who sacrifice their lives to give you freedom. Plus you destroy what Martin Luther Jr achieve for you and destroy his dream to make this nation a peaceful loving nation. In all you show hatefulness and no remorse for you action.

“Made in the Holy Image of God”…no wonder liberals and their puppet media called it a “dark speech”. Government is the god of liberals, so this was truly disturbing for them.
God bless President Trump. I believe he was called by God for this time, even though, like all of us, he is deeply flawed, but the Lord used many, many deeply flawed people in the accounts we can read in the Bible.
Vote in November as though the future of this great Republic depends upon it, because it DOES.

Did anyone fully follow the link to “Watch the Highlights?” I opened it. I watched it. Then I scrolled down. There is an ad for Joe Biden and a litany of remarks that are not very favorable to POTUS. Who reviewed this article fully before printing it?
Pretty sad that there appears to be a lack of professionalism in the publication department at Amac.

Great speech by a true patriot who loves the USA. We will NOT allow the socialists/communists/Marxists who plague our nation today to win this culture war. We MUST restore our Constitution and prosecute all those who would destroy it for personal gain.

Anyone who thinks that either Socialism or Democracy are good, or even acceptable, forms of government have been brainwashed!!!  Understand, the term “representative democracy” is an oxymoron (complete contradiction) and Socialism kills both the spirit and the body!

The proper term for our form of government is a representative REPUBLIC. We the People are sovereign, each state is also sovereign. The Constitution puts restrictions on the power of the federal government; NOT on We the People. Bit by bit socialists/communists have infiltrated our government and given themselves powers that are an abomination to the Constitution. It is time to take back OUR power and remind them that they work for us, but are always on probation and can be replaced for bad behavior.
Those who do not know the difference between a Republic and a democracy need to learn and learn fast. Throughout all of history, every democracy ever formed ended in chaos, followed by anarchy and then tyranny. It is a FAILED ideology that can never work because it goes strongly against human nature. The ONLY successful government in history is the one the Founding Fathers gave us with the Declaration of Independence, the U. S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
We MUST DEMAND our government abide by the dictates of the Constitution. It is, after all, the supreme law of the land. ALL unconstitutional departments, bureaus and agencies created by the federal government that do not have a specific purpose stated in the Constitution, must be defunded and shut down permanently along with the rules, regulations and dictates that cannot be law because these constructs are NOT the legislature. Only the legislature has the power to make law.
As for those who think socialism is a form of Utopia, I say this: Attempting the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is the definition of insanity!

Go Trump Go 2020

When people start destroying history even if it reminds them of bad times that is wrong. If we start destroying everything that reminds us of our past . We will not have a future because we don’t know about the past and we keep repeating it. We don’t want slaves in America and we don’t want to have fights and killing with America Indians. I think that some people in this country can’t be happy unless they are starting trouble . The people in America are smarter than all this hat and stupid stuff . Stop destroying the county we love or you need to leave you do have a choice.

The noise from a few does not begin to hear from the majority. We let the noise come and go. We allow them to yell,rant and rave as if these young grownups are trying to change into Adults. Most of us are Adults, not grownups. We do our due diligence. We watch, listen, think and respond accordingly. There is no need to tear down anything. It is what it is and there are reasons and a lot of feelings that go with Statutes and such. I guess those young have to get out of the parents basements and small apartments with their computers and actually see and talk with people, face to face ( 2020) is Distancing so for now , try it. It works! No Facebook, No Twitter or what ever system they constantly change to?
I understand more than one of those young men and women realize. You see, I served some 43 years in one or another employment and was confined many, many times and relied on media that was at best, Not Transparent nor completely truthful. No not Prison. Although sometimes I wondered with the many, many places I’ve had the pleasure or not, of residing in or at?
One must, as Candace Owens has said. Get out and look for yourself. When one lives is a cocoon, and only hears and sees one or two select indivisuals and the few that go to the SAME Institutions. Colleges, Universities, Socialists / Communists, or just plan young who are so mad at themselves that they hurt others in the process. Be still and enjoy the noise that comes from silence!

Good speech now stop these idiots, find the backers cease all assets arrest prosecute, all those involved including politicians, then start deportation of those so miserable here, revoked citizenships, any blacks that don’t like it here are so unhappy one way ticket for them and their families revoked citizenship, these people have had to much given to them now they want everything no way get them gone, over the years have watched these lazy people get a job that they are not qualified, then don’t even try to do the job, then you have the generations of welfare people they won’t work at all, time to put a stop to this garbage, all able bodied people on any form of welfare, must get a job do the job, and hold the job , don’t mind helping but not allowing those on assistance to stay on assistance,Is a big NO, mothers with young children under school age is different, but those that go out to get pregnant so they don’t have to work, need the less help, should have to go to work no matter what. It is the working class that pay the taxes and we are tired of supporting lazy, lying, cheating people
