Delivering a message of patriotism on the eve of the July 4 holiday, former President Donald Trump vowed “it will not be canceled,” and American founders and patriots “will never be purged from history or canceled from our hearts.”
“Tomorrow we will celebrate 245 years of glorious American Independence: It will not be canceled, by the way,” Trump told his Save America rally Saturday night in Sarasota, Florida, which aired live on Newsmax. “And we will teach young people across the country that George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson.

“People want to take their names off buildings,” Trump continued. “Can you believe it? They took names of buildings like George Washington. And I told you this is where they’re coming from.

“The mission for all of us here tonight is to preserve the legacy of July 4, 1776, and to defend our liberty from the radical left movement that seeks to cancel this date, demolish our heritage, and destroy our beloved nation.
“In just five months, the Biden administration has launched an all out assault on everything we cherish and we value under Joe Biden and the left.”
Trump began his rally with a call out for patriotism and “free and fair elections.”
“I’m thrilled to be home in the great state of Florida with the thousands and thousands of proud American patriots, who stand strong for faith, and family, of God and country, and never forget free and fair elections and strong borders,” Trump said. Continue reading on Newsmax.
