Irate Dems Hate Trump’s Plans for July 4 at the Lincoln Memorial

Democrats appear to resist President Donald Trump on just about anything and everything he does.

In my view, it is getting out of hand — and America is losing out on becoming greater than it could be if everybody was on board with the same agenda.

The president tweeted out earlier this year that he would be attending a July 4 celebration at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.

And Democrats are angry about it.

Do you agree that protesting is acceptable, but rioting is not?

Here’s my analysis.

The Dems are afraid that Trump’s July 4 address at the Lincoln Memorial will be even more moving than his D-Day address was.

As the anniversary kicked off for D-Day and Trump gave his address, I pondered the high cost of freedom that those soldiers sacrificed for all of us — and I thought to myself how so many of our young people know so little or even nothing about our history.

Here are some of the whiners who are complaining about Trump’s visit to the Lincoln Memorial on July 4.

Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) (shown above right): “President Trump’s efforts to insert politics into a celebration of our nation’s history is extremely alarming. Forcing taxpayers to foot the bill for what amounts to a political rally is irresponsible and a misuse of funds. I strongly urge the president to reconsider his proposed event.”

Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.): “In addition to drawing the administration’s attention to the cost, resource impacts and logistical headaches this will cause, we are respectfully asking the president to make himself part of this great celebration rather than attempting to make this great celebration about him.”

Rep. Betty McCollum (D-Minn.): “The Fourth of July celebration is not about any one person; it is not a time for campaigning — but a time to celebrate our unity as a free nation” (source: Fox News)

All of this, in my view, proves that Democrats are against Trump and America.

The Fourth of July should be celebrated, not scorned because people do not get along.

It’s the birthday of our country — and to watch these so-called adults warring over stupidity shows how badly we need a spiritual revival in our nation.

The best part of this is that Hillary Clinton will not be addressing the public from the Lincoln Memorial on July 4 — so there’s that.
