Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From News.yahoo.com: “Trump will host a scaled-back July 4th party at White House as coronavirus cases spike”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

WASHINGTON – The explosion of coronavirus cases isn't stopping President Donald Trump from hosting a July 4th party Saturday at the White House, despite objections from public health officials.

This year's Independence Day event is somewhat scaled back – there won't be armored military vehicles on display at the Lincoln Memorial, as happened last year –but the White House still plans to host hundreds of people on the South Lawn for music and fireworks.

Trump also plans to make remarks at the White House a day after a speech in which he took sides in the nation's culture wars while appearing at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota.

Attacking what he called "a new far left fascism" seeking to tear down statues of leaders who owned slaves or fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War, Trump claimed "our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, and indoctrinate our children."
