WHITE HOUSE - President Donald Trump Friday heads to Mount Rushmore, where he will headline U.S. Independence Day celebrations featuring fireworks for the first time in more than a decade at the national park in South Dakota.

“It's going to be a fireworks display like few people have seen. It's going to be very exciting,” Trump said during a White House event Thursday.

Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a giant sculpture featuring the faces of four American presidents – George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln, carved into a granite mountainside.
