President TrumpDonald John Trump Trump responds to calls to tear down monuments with creation of 'National Garden' of statues Trump: Children are taught in school to 'hate their own country' Trump accuses those tearing down statues of wanting to 'overthrow the American Revolution' MORE took aggressive swipes at the "radical left" and news media while defending his administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic during a wide-ranging Independence Day address on Saturday.
“We are now in the process of defeating the radical left, the Marxists, the anarchists, the agitators, the looters, and people who in many instances have absolutely no clue what they are doing,” Trump said at the White House, referring to the nationwide protests against police brutality and racial inequality that have been ongoing since the May 25 death of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man who died in Minneapolis police custody.
On the nation's 244th birthday, Trump said that America was thriving on his watch until it “got hit by the virus that came from China,” comments that come as the U.S. and multiple states have reported record numbers of coronavirus cases in the past week.
The president repeated talking points he’s pushed in recent weeks saying that the spike in cases is a result of expanded testing, a claim rejected by the White House's own experts. He also touted a declining death rate in the U.S., which is still higher than other developed countries.
“And we’ve made a lot of progress, our strategy is moving along well,” Trump said. “It goes out in one area, it rears out its ugly face in another area. But we’ve learned a lot. We’ve learned how to put out the flame.”
