Will Four Seasons Total Landscaping be added to National Register of Historic Places? Petition gets 3K signatures
Four Seasons Total Landscaping has been in the news since President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani held a press conference there. Here’s a refresher. On November 7, shortly before the AP and other news outlets called the election for Joe Biden, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to announce that his lawyers would be holding a “big press conference” in Philadelphia. White House reporter Josh Wingrove posted screenshots of the president’s tweet writing, “Trump, a hotelier at heart, announces a press conference at Philadelphia's "Four Seasons" at 11, before specifying it's at Four Seasons Total Landscaping at 11:30.”

Big press conference today in Philadelphia at Four Seasons Total Landscaping — 11:30am!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 7, 2020
First Trump tweeted it would take place at the “Four Seasons, Philadelphia,” later corrected himself and said that the news conference was going to be held at the Four Seasons Total Landscaping. The Four Seasons Hotel sent out its own tweet, making sure everyone knew that the news conference would not be held there but rather at the landscaping business as they wrote, “To clarify, President Trump’s press conference will NOT be held at Four Seasons Hotel Philadelphia. It will be held at Four Seasons Total Landscaping— no relation with the hotel.”

It will be held at Four Seasons Total Landscaping— no relation with the hotel.
As mentioned in the report by MEAWW, Four Seasons Total Landscaping was founded in 1992. In 2017, it celebrated 25 years of service to the Tri-state area. The property is solely owned by Marie Siravo and is certified by the Minority Business Enterprise Council through the City of Philadelphia.
Now, a petition has been started in Change.org with the headline: Add Four Seasons Total Landscaping to the national register of historic places. The statement on the page reads: “We as a nation need to remember where the travesty of the Trump administration died with a whimper.” The signature goal has been set at 5,000, out of which more than 3,000 have signed at the time of publishing this story. One supporter commented, “This is an important historical landmark and the pinnacle of democracy.” Another said, “I’m signing because I strongly feel the Four Seasons Total Landscaping Co. is worthy of historic designation status. Rudolph Giuliani made it an American landmark.” One said, “My grandchildren need to know I’m not lying when I said this happened.”
The Philadelphia landscaping company is also selling a variety of merchandise on its website. These include hoodies, T-shirts with slogans, in fact, including slogans that read ‘Make America Rake Again’ and ‘Lawn and Order’.
On the other hand, according to CNN, on Tuesday, November 17, Giuliani tried to make a case against mail-in voting in a federal courtroom and faced questions from a judge. Judge Matthew Brann of the Middle District of Pennsylvania at one point asked, "You're alleging that the two individual plaintiffs were denied the right to vote. But at the bottom, you're asking this court to invalidate more than 6.8 million votes, thereby disenfranchising every single voter in the Commonwealth. Could you tell me how this result could possibly be justified?” As per the report, Brann even asked why the campaign had come to a federal court, when allegations about local officials could have been taken to state court. Giuliani's responses largely stated generalizations, as noted by CNN, that Democratic-leaning counties had conspired against POTUS, and that absentee voting was unfair when counties administered it differently.
These remarks were made by the internet and individual organizations, MEAWW cannot confirm them independently and nor does it support these claims being made on the Internet.
