“Most presidents have celebrated the Fourth of July without trying to corrupt it with propaganda and monarchical pageantry, but that’s obviously not his style,” said Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) in an interview.

Independence Day is “a great holiday” that shouldn’t become “a state-organized propaganda event,” he added.

In a statement, House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) said, “The President’s decision to insert politics into a celebration of our nation is deeply concerning. The estimated cost would be significant, and would essentially amount to a taxpayer-funded campaign rally.

“I hope the House committees of jurisdiction will closely examine the President’s proposal. The Trump Administration ought to rethink this decision.”
