Noem has noted in advance of Trump’s “dream” to have his encounter on Mount Rushmore, the Coolidge-era sculpture that attributes the 60-foot-tall faces of Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.
“He stated, ‘Kristi, arrive on around in this article. Shake my hand, and so I shook his hand, and I claimed, ‘Mr. President, you must arrive to South Dakota sometime. We have Mount Rushmore.’ And he goes, ‘Do you know it really is my dream to have my experience on Mount Rushmore?'”
Trump also toyed with the concept of adding himself to Mount Rushmore in 2017 at a marketing campaign rally in Youngstown, Ohio.
“As we fulfill here tonight there is a increasing risk that threatens each blessing our ancestors fought so really hard for,” Trump warned.
A White Property formal mentioned to the New York Moments that Mount Rushmore is a federal, not a condition monument.
