July 4: Trump vows to defeat 'radical left' in Independence Day speech

Despite a nationwide spike in cases, US President Donald Trump used the July 4 address to postpone the country's "progress" against Covid-19.

Amid his criticism of dealing with the epidemic, he said China - the place where the virus originated - should be “fully accountable”.

The president has also appealed to protesters who have broken the monuments of American historical figures in recent racist protests.

"Their goal is to demolish," he declared.

Echoing his Friday night speech at Mount Rushmore, South Dakota, the president pledged to defeat "radical leftists, Marxists, anarchists, agitators, and thieves."

He was spoken to on the lawn of the White House by his wife, Melania, in a crowd of American soldiers and border medical personnel.

Praising "our nation's scientific talent," Mr. Trump said the United States would have a therapeutic and/or vaccine solution before the end of the year.

The head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adenom Genius, warned in June that scientists could not produce an effective vaccine against coronaviruses, saying: "We are predicted to have one vaccine a year. It may be." Scientists say. "

According to data from the Johns Hopkins University, there was the largest number of coronavirus deaths and infections in the world on Saturday, and more than 43,000 new cases of Covid-19 were diagnosed in 24 hours. More than 11,458 new cases were reported in Florida, especially in the spread.

The president made no mention of the nearly 130,000 American deaths associated with the epidemic. He claimed that the US had tested about 40 million people and that 99% of coronavirus cases were "completely harmless" - and he gave no evidence.

Following Mr. Trump's comments, a military flyover with various aircraft, including B-52 bombers and F-35 fighter jets, was used.

Then there was a large-scale fireworks display in Washington, DC, which was witnessed by the crowd as they gathered at the National Mall.

Prior to Mr. Trump's speech, protesters from Black Lives Matter gathered outside the White House - including several anti-racist demonstrations recently in the wake of George Floyd's murder in police custody.

What else has Trump said?

Addressing America's Coronavirus War, the president said his administration was "making great progress" and "our strategy is well underway," despite the nationwide transformation.

Trump, who is facing re-election this year and is eager to burn his conservative base in an appeal to nationalism, has accused China of trying to hide the spread of the virus - a charge Beijing has denied.

"China's privacy, deception and concealment have allowed [the virus] to spread worldwide," he alleged.

Mr. Trump said of his plan to create "National Heroes of American Heroes" featuring statues of famous Americans, and that the nation's rich heritage belongs to citizens of all races.

"The patriots who built our country are not villains," he said. "They are heroes."

How did the US recognize July 4?
Many July 4 events were canceled on public health grounds, the beaches in Florida and California were closed, the city's parade was canceled, and the fireworks were lifted.

In this year's presidential election, Democratic opponent Joe Trump tweeted Mr. Trump, "This is the Fourth of July, the most patriotic thing you can do is wear a mask."

Fireworks are a traditional July 4 attraction, but 80% of cities and towns have canceled their shows.

New York City usually has one hour of extra vacation, but this year it was changed to a five-minute show, hosted by the Macy's Department Store, and last aired on Saturday's television - all unknown. Places.
