President Trump is visiting Mount Rushmore on July fourth.
Naturally, Democrats felt they had to attack him for this and criticize the event, but they went too far and even they know it.
They linked the national monument to racism in a tweet and quickly decided to delete it but not before people made copies.
The DNC’s Tweet About July 4th Event Was So Bad They Deleted It
The official Twitter account of the Democratic National Committee accused President Trump of “glorifying white supremacy” over a planned celebration of July 4th at Mount Rushmore.
Last month, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem announced that fireworks would be coming back to Mount Rushmore for Independence Day celebrations and that Trump would be attending. She thanked him for working with her administration to make it happen, as the displays had previously been canceled over fire dangers.
But it wasn’t the environment the DNC was concerned about in their Monday tweet. Rather, it was “white supremacy”.
“Trump has disrespected Native communities time and again,” the Democrats wrote. “He’s attempted to limit their voting rights and blocked critical pandemic relief. Now he’s holding a rally glorifying white supremacy at Mount Rushmore- a region once sacred to tribal communities.”

Astounding, isn’t it?
The Democrats think Mt Rushmore is a display of white supremacy.
There’s no saving this country if Biden gets elected.

Would be curious to hear @TheDemocrats explain what part of shooting off fireworks at Mt. Rushmore for the 4th of July "glorifys white supremacy". The fireworks? Mt. Rushmore itself? The 4th of July? https://t.co/B3uSUkTBQs

Those are excellent questions.
