‘SALUTE TO AMERICA’: Trump’s 4th of July Celebration to Feature ‘Largest Firework Show’ in DC History

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.25.19

President Trump’s ‘Salute to America’ on the 4th of July will feature the “largest fireworks show” in the history of Washington, DC, according to a spokesperson with the National Parks Service.

“New details have been released about the July 4th celebration in D.C. Officials say you can expect the biggest fireworks show the nation’s capital has ever seen,” reports Fox DC. “The annual event will be different this year with the addition of President Trump’s ‘Salute to America’ event at the Lincoln Memorial.”

“I think it’s safe to say without much exaggeration that this is going to be the largest fireworks show D.C. has ever seen,” National Park Service spokesman Mike Litterst said.

“Fireworks go off at 1,000 feet. There are no 1,000 feet buildings between here and Capitol Hill,” he said. “If you have watched the fireworks from anywhere up and down the National Mall in recent years, no matter where you’re watching them from, again this year you won’t have any trouble seeing them.”

President Trump will address the nation on the 4th of July in an official ‘Solute to America,’ celebrating the USA’s independence with a firework show accompanied by a military fly-over of the nation’s Capitol.

“There is no more appropriate place to celebrate the anniversary of American independence than among the Nation’s monuments on the National Mall and the memorials to the service men and women who have defended the United States for the past 243 years,” said Department of the Interior Secretary Bernhardt. “For the first time in many years, the World War II Memorial and areas around the Reflecting Pool will be open for the public to enjoy a stunning fireworks display and an address by our Commander-in-Chief. We are excited to open these new areas so that more visitors may experience this year’s Independence Day celebration in our nation’s capital.”

“Additionally, this year for the first time in recent memory, the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool, the World War II Memorial and Constitution Gardens will each be accessible and available as a location from which to view the fireworks. These prime viewing areas are now outside of the fireworks safety zone due to the fireworks launch site being moved from the Reflecting Pool to West Potomac Park. The change of locations also means that the Signers of the Declaration of Independence Memorial will be accessible to the public on Independence Day. In previous years it had been closed due to the old fireworks safety zone,” adds the press release.

The announcement comes just hours after President Trump officially kicked-off his 2020 re-election campaign in Orlando, Florida.

President Trump shattered fundraising records less than 24 hours after officially announcing his 2020 campaign; taking in more than $24.8 million in the first day of his re-election run for the White House.

@realDonaldTrump has raised a record breaking $24.8M in less than 24 hours for his re-election. The enthusiasm across the country for this President is unmatched and unlike anything we’ve ever seen!” posted GOP Chair Ronna McDaniel.

President Trump confirmed this week that more than 100,000 people requested passes to hear his high-stakes speech in Orlando Tuesday night; with massive lines forming hours before the Commander-in-Chief is set to kick-off his 2020 re-election campaign.

“It was a sea of red under the sweltering sun Tuesday as thousands of Trump supporters, decked out in MAGA-inspired attire, waited outside the Amway Center hours before the president’s arrival,” reports Fox News.

AMERICA'S GAME? NFL REJECTS Pro-Veteran SUPER BOWL Ad

The National Football League continued to reach new lows on Tuesday; flat-out rejecting a one-page advertisement in the NFL’s official Super Bowl Program that urged all Americans to “Please Stand” during the performance of the national anthem, reports USA Today.

The ad -submitted by pro-veteran’s organization AMVETS- urged all those attending the big game to remain standing as the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ rings out inside the arena. The material was ultimately rejected by the league for violating the NFL’s commitment to avoiding “political statements” in the program.

“The Super Bowl game program is designed for fans to commemorate and celebrate the game, players, teams and the Super Bowl,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told USA Today.

“It’s never been a place for advertising that could be considered by some as a political statement. The NFL has long supported the military and veterans and will again salute our service members in the Super Bowl with memorable on-field moments that will be televised as part of the game,” he added.

The NFL’s been struggling to come to terms with a disastrous 2017 postseason following months of players “taking a knee” during the performance of the national anthem. President Trump rocketed the issue into the spotlight after he called for a full-fledged boycott of the NFL until league owners demand their athletes remain standing during the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’
