The people flipping out are at best 5% of the population. Most Democrats don't care. And yes, the 5% do think they own the public square.

People are upset because Trump is seeking to politicize a revered national holiday for his benefit. He seeks to do something previous presidents have for the most part have not done.

Even moderates don’t want to see July 4th politicized, stop kidding yourself that these are extremists.

If you dont like it, dont watch. Duh..

He is the President..talking to the citizens on a national holiday is hardly scandalous..

He seeks to talk to the people..why do libs have an issue with that?

The President that kept the union together is a great place to celebrate the birth and union of the nation !!!

Don't you agree freedom lovers ?

Dems fume over Trump plans to address public from Lincoln Memorial on July 4
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/dem...rial-on-july-4

“HOLD THE DATE!” Trump tweeted. “We will be having one of the biggest gatherings in the history of Washington, D.C., on July 4th. It will be called “A Salute To America” and will be held at the Lincoln Memorial. Major fireworks display, entertainment and an address by your favorite President, me!”

I think that folks have trouble with changing traditions.

I think folks like the location that has been used and don't want to see it changed.

Is it just Dems?

Using the 4th for political gain doesn't make America great, besides the fact that we were already pretty great. Trump doesn't care about anyone but himself, he couldn't even stop tweeting after the D-Day celebration. He made a great speech and then digressed into criticizing Mueller and Pelosi with the cemetery in the background, I expect he would use the 4th to even divide us more.

Past presidents have stayed out of the limelight, instead leaving it as an apolitical peoples’s celebration.
I hate seeing something we all agree on, our love of America, turned into a political rally.
