The famous monument in South Dakota was suddenly in the news. But would another head fit on Mount Rushmore?
Famous Mount Rushmore. Although U.S. President Donald Trump called the news a fake, he did admit that he liked the idea itself.
So, the New York Times, citing its own source, wrote about President Trump’s dream. He allegedly once told someone that he wanted to “add his character” next to four great US presidents.
Donald Trump immediately refuted mainstream media, but he liked the idea:
This is fake news (…) Never offered this, although based on many things I’ve achieved in the first three and a half years, perhaps more than any other president, it sounds like a good idea to me! twitter
– Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 10, 2020.
The retraction from the head of the White House appeared on Twitter, Trump’s favorite communication channel.
Shortly before his answer, the American president tweeted his picture next to the four presidents on Mount Rushmore – George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.
The memorial was created on famous Mount Rushmore in 1941. It took 14 years to build the monument. This landmark attracts more than two million tourists a year.
