God Bless America: Trump's 'beautiful' speech bombarded with praise, 'delivered a strong message to Leftists'
Supporters are spamming President's twitter mentions with gratitude for his 'patriotic' and 'sentimental' Independence Day address at Mount Rushmore
During President Donald Trump's Fourth of July celebration at Mount Rushmore, he delivered a speech that some call "patriotic" while others call it an "adverse joke." As is in most political debates, some users of the social media channel congratulated Trump on his "epic" presidency thanking him for the speech, while other users focused on how the president completely left out the pandemic. The New York Times article titled Trump Uses Mount Rushmore Speech to Deliver Divisive Culture War Message, depicts the sentiments of the people who are dragging POTUS out for the hateful speech.
The publication reported that President Trump said, “Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values and indoctrinate our children. Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders, deface our most sacred memorials, and unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities." Trump supporters wasted no time in bashing the article as they re-tweeted it with fierce statements with one writing, "Leave it to the liberal rag @nytimes to call a speech about patriotism and freedom, dark and divisive! God bless America!" and another adding, "They probably didn’t even watch his speech. @nytimes is filled with hate. Must be a lonely place. I was inspired by President Trump’s speech. He mentioned God many times, which made my heart sing. God Bless America and Our President!"
"THANK YOU [email protected] FOR A BEAUTIFUL SPEECH YOU HAVE MANY OF US WITH CHILLS OF ENTHUSIASM, SENTIMENTALITY AND TEARS SWELLING IN OUR EYES. IT WAS BEAUTIFUL AND SO IT [email protected] HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY SIR GOD BLESS AMERICA," wrote a Trump supporter.
The "beautiful" speech seemed to have "touched" a few hearts as fans of the President tweeted, "What an amazing speech and evening at Mt. Rushmore! God bless you and God bless America! Happy 4th of July! USA USA USA USA USA #Trump2020Landslide #FourMoreYears #IndependenceDay #4thofJuly2020. Another user wrote, "God bless America and [thumbs down emoji] to the Protesters" referring to the protests occurring in many states of the country following the death of George Floyd. Some were also sure to point out the politics that was called out in the speech - "The speech melted my heart! It was beautiful, and delivered a strong message to the Leftists! God bless America," tweeted another user.
"Trump's speech was disgraceful! At an event that should be celebrating our Independence and under a Monument of American Heroes Trump preaches the HATE and DIVISIVENESS that embodies his Presidency! #IndependenceFromTrump," tweeted one user with another adding, "For the simple-minded in Trump's base, let's be honest, it was hate speech. Us vs. them. Real America v. Fake America. Love v. Hate America. It was not about, we are all Americans, let's build a more unified and better America."
Yes, there were many who stood against the President as well, calling out many other users for supporting and thanking the president. "Where are your morals? #f***rumpsspeech," wrote one user under a Trump supporter tweet. "Not me. I refuse to give that thing no more than 1 sec of my life. it's the same idiotic BS ALL THE TIME. Trumps’ speech - spew hate, , blame minorities, Covid hoax, fake news, white is right, law and order, save some dumb statues, russian hoax . SAME OL , wrote one user adding [check mark emoji's to each of the "same old boring criteria," as people are calling it. "my brain is melting from how f****** dumb Trump's speech at Mt Rushmore was. His admin is really... Really doubling the fuck down on this whole fascism thing," wrote another user.
Nevertheless, supporters seemed to be bombarding the President's twitter mentions with gratitude. "Happy 4th of July NYTimes! GOD bless America and GOD President TRUMP!!!!!!!," wrote one user, with another one adding, "If you thought his speech was dark and divisive.. You Are Un-American!!! YOU ARE THE PROBLEM.. GO LIVE SOMEWHERE ELSE!! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!." Another supported added, "@realDonaldTrump delivered an amazingly patriotic speech. I am so proud to be an American. God Bless America."
