a quantum and social hell is being presented in iran yes way inlets in america as a false equivalence in which by demanding. the problem 'd and seeing as things are just normal these will bring back to normality while staying in south america and the police in bolivia have fired tear gas at protesters calling for an end to the virus quarantine. local media is reporting demonstrators are detaining 15 people to raise the stakes around in their demands the authorities said they moved in to free those being held and to take down a blockade set up by the protesters security officials say the situation is still unfolding the government securing the former president. and his supporters being behind the unrest. meanwhile the world health organization is ending its trial into
3:04 am
the use of hydroxy chloroquine as a treatment for coronavirus patients the us president had touted the drug as a game changer he also said a few weeks back that he was taking it the world health organization says interim results from the trial showed the drug produced little or no impact on the death rates of those hospitalized with covert 19. it's the 4th of july in the united states a day commemorating the declaration of independence from britain president trump has been hosting the annual salute to america event at the white house celebrations across the country and jutes of the virus pandemic with many states canceling their festivities the president reiterated parts of his speech from the mount rushmore event on friday. we will safeguard our values traditions customs and beliefs we will teach our children to cherish and adore their country so that they can build its future together we will fight for the american dream
3:05 am
and we will defend to protect and preserve american way of life which began in 1492 when columbus discovered america rob reynolds is our correspondent following the story of america i guess today rob it would be fair to say the backdrop to yesterday at mount rushmore today at the white house of course it's the coronavirus pandemic what are the latest figures on that in the u.s. . well the total death toll in this country peter is climbing steadily towards 130000 the number of positive identified cases of covert 19 hit a record of over $57000.00 that was announced on saturday by public health officials and in various states the numbers are exploding in florida for example
3:06 am
11000 new cases reported on friday in texas there were 7000 cases and a very. sort of worrisome note there in that state it has the largest medical complex in the country it's called the texas medical center it's in houston and the the doctors there say the i.c.u. the intensive care units there are overwhelmed they are at 100 percent capacity so that doesn't auger well. for people in texas now the crowd at the national mall in washington to hear the president speak and to watch the fly over of vintage warplanes and. fireworks heard a speech that was sort of veered from that sort of praising american exceptionalism
3:07 am
that you heard in his comments about christopher columbus and also towards the this sort of divisive vision of a radical leftist mobs that are trying to tear down the country and tear down its heritage in the form of monuments as as you know there have been many monuments to slave holding. politicians and leaders of the 19th century as well as of confederate general from the u.s. civil war in the 19th century president trump announced plans for a vast garden of american heroes as he called it is what he had to say about that. to celebrate america's majestic and heritage yesterday i sided executive order to create a brand new monument to our most beloved icons the national guard
3:08 am
of american heroes will be a vast outdoor park that will feature the statues of the greatest americans who have ever lived we will honor extraordinary citizens from every community and from every place rob is that garden of heroes i mean do we know any more details a person and do you think what 4 months away now from the election just over 4 months away is that an election issue because he's done a couple of big set piece interviews recently and he doesn't seem to know what his 2nd term if he gets a 2nd term will be all about. yes that's right peter he was asked in an interview in one of the american networks to explain what he wants to do in his 2nd term and he was not really able to come up with a very coherent response to that i think that given the state of the race now the
3:09 am
president is kind of flailing around this garden of american heroes certainly appeals to patriotic people it may also appeal to people who. have. anger over the tearing down of confederate monuments as as i mentioned those are going down all over the country even in richmond virginia the former capital of the confederacy so in that context i guess this garden is is part of the appeal to the base. it's a dia the president apparently came up with quite suddenly over the past couple of days we don't know where it's going to be we don't know how big it's going to be we don't know whether it's going to require funding from the federal budget or would be done through private subscriptions it could be
3:10 am
a way of sort of. a wedge issue if you will if for example the president says he wants a certain sum of money and ask the u.s. house which is dominated and controlled by the democrats to fund his garden of american heroes and the house doesn't want to do it then he can say well you see the democrats in the house they hate american heroes and so forth but i think you're seeing the president sort of throwing everything out there and seeing what's going to stick he hasn't really i think captured the spirit of the times with polls showing vast numbers of people in support of black lives matter and polls showing. vast numbers of americans believing the country is not heading in the right direction polls showing that people want a more unifying tone the president's coming up with this more divisive tone and he
3:11 am
apparently believes that's best for him politically but at this stage with several months still to go before the election joe biden is well ahead of the president just by the way peter biden was also speaking today he had a video presentation on line because he's not doing these big public events and he said he wanted to focus on the quest for full racial justice and saying that americans should seize the opportunity to make a reality of the words in shrine in the declaration of independence that was signed 244 years ago today that all men are created equal in the eyes of god something that has been honored in in words but not in facts in the united states throughout its history ok rob many thanks for that rob reynolds our correspondent reporting live from l.a.
