President Trump on Friday will travel to Mount Rushmore to mark the start of Independence Day weekend with a firework display -- coming at a time of vigorous national debate over America’s history, and when the South Dakota landmark is under renewed scrutiny by activists.
Trump is expected to speak at the event, and more than 7,000 tickets have been distributed for people to watch it. It is likely to be filled with supporters of the president, but will also attract protesters.
