experts about avoiding large gatherings due to the corona virus pandemic early in my colleague darren jordan spoke with roslyn jordan has been following events from virginia. it was a political call to arms but i would imagine that as people wake up here in the united states in the next 6 to 8 hours they're going to hear what the president had to say and they're going to point out a couple of facts 1st that a lot of the statues that have been targeted by anti-racism protesters were in fact been removed by local government and the other factor is that these statues in large part basically celebrated people who fought for the confederacy which sought to in shrines of slavery as a political and economic reality in the southern how of the united states and those statues were raised not in the 19th century but in the middle of the 20th century during the last prominent wave of civil rights activities in this country now that
doesn't matter to donald trump he's running for reelection his numbers are down and certainly before a crowd of people who can only be described as some of his perhaps most ardent supporters the president had this to say about those who sit on the other side one of their political weapons is canceled culture driving people from their. shaming just sensors and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees. this is the very definition of totalitarian. let's not forget it's the 4th of july but seemingly americans have very little to celebrate over the holidays you've got the coronavirus pandemic high unemployment mass protests over racial inequality so how is all of this playing out politically for trump with an election just about 5 months away. well certainly you would think that when you're marking the united states birthday independence day being july 4th that you would expect to hear u.s.
president deliver a message of unity instead speech at mount rushmore us versus them there doesn't seem to have been any will attempt to try to bridge the differences between the various facets of the u.s. population while americans are less than 5 months away from a presidential election but many are unhappy with the state of the nation trumping criticised for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic for another daily record rise in new cases the total number of people infected is now close to $2800000.00 the highest in the world nearly 130000 people have died after a historic rise in unemployment figures things have improved over the past 2 months but 14700000 americans still jobless americans lately witnessed its biggest protests against racial injustice since the civil rights movement of the 1960 s.
a black american george floyd died in police custody in minneapolis in may james warren is executive editor of news guardian was the chicago tribune's managing editor in charge of the washington bureau he says that trump speech shows a disregard for the health crisis facing the u.s. . this was very much as trumping as it gets and you took this iconic backdrop and you had the president clearly in a somewhat self-absorbed way likening himself to those who are great folks and doing it as you will notice without a mask everybody on that stage and most of the people seen in the audience mass on a day in which we have again broken national records for folks testing positive and even we've learned in the last hour the girlfriend of one of the president's children one of his sons has herself tested positive so i think this was tended to be very much red meat for his supporters people in an area like this and it was
even by trump in standards rather rhetorically bombastic as having you know light and protesters people who symbolize the values that those 4 great presidents symbolized he's likely in them to fascists and totalitarians somehow and here is what is befuddling that he somehow going to attract to the many independents out there particularly suburban american women college educated women who did vote twice for barack obama then for trump and might have been seen a year or so ago on the fence and now most polling shows are very disturbed as much by issues of personality as they are by a 6 percent of trunks so he clearly for the moment is putting this astonishing health crisis sort of in a rearview mirror in a most curious and i think probably debatable fashion. the humanitarian rescue ship in the mediterranean has declared a state of emergency that its crew say they can no longer guarantee the safety of
