HOLD THE DATE! 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!

Trump’s celebration of July 4, 2018 was low key, for him, but he wasn’t running for re-election yet. This year, he’s apparently decided to preside over a big party. With fireworks, bands, and all the pomp, ceremony, and spectacle the federal government can muster. And because he’s Trump, he managed to make it sound like he’s inventing a new holiday that coincidentally falls on July 4.
P.S. If I had to pick a favorite president, it’d be one of the dead ones, because they’re no longer a threat.
