Trump takes aim at looters and anarchists at Fourth of July speech


President Donald Trump has vowed to “safeguard” America’s values from enemies within in a speech to celebrate the Fourth of July.

Mr Trump watched paratroopers float to the ground in a tribute to America, greeted his audience of front-line medical workers and others central in responding to the coronavirus pandemic and opened up on those who “slander” him and disrespect the country’s past.

“We are now in the process of defeating the radical left, the anarchists, the agitators, the looters, and the people who, in many instances, have absolutely no clue what they are doing,” he said.
