Trump salutes America on July 4, despite critics; Citizenship census question battle not over

Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know as you start the day …

Trump salutes America in elaborate July 4 event, despite critics — and a downpour of rain
Despite concerns that he would use the Fourth of July event as a glorified campaign rally, President Trump used his “Salute to America” speech Thursday evening to praise the men and women of the armed forces and American exceptionalism. With the Lincoln Memorial as a backdrop and flanked by camouflaged Bradley fighting vehicles, Trump stuck mainly to the script during his speech – praising the spirit that “runs through the veins of every American patriot” and attempting to strike a more unifying  and conciliatory tone than he is generally known to take.

While Trump’s speech set a unifying tone, the lead-up to the event was far from harmonious – with Trump’s opponents, especially 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, slamming him on everything from the cost of the event to the perceived exploitation of the holiday for a political purpose. Two outside groups, the National Parks Conservation Foundation and Democracy Forward, want the Interior Department’s internal watchdog to investigate what they say may be a “potentially unlawful decision to divert” national parks money to Trump’s “spectacle.”

White House seeking all options on citizenship question for 2020 census
President Trump on Thursday doubled down on his push for a citizenship question on the 2020 Census, promising that his administration is “working very hard” on the controversial issue — as reports say he is mulling using an executive order to get the question on the census. “So important for our Country that the very simple and basic ‘Are you a Citizen of the United States?’ question be allowed to be asked in the 2020 Census,” he tweeted. He added that the Commerce and Justice departments were “working very hard on this, even on the 4th of July!” Earlier this week, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross announced that his department was going ahead with the printing of the census without the citizenship question, apparently indicating that the administration had dropped the controversial issue. That decision came after a Supreme Court ruling last week that blocked the citizenship question for the time being until more reasoning from the administration was provided.

Ocasio-Cortez calls border officials liars after new report on offensive Facebook posts
In a Twitter message Thursday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., branded the leadership of U.S. Customs and Border Protection as liars after a news site reported that CBP officials knew much longer than they claimed about a Facebook group on which some past and current CBP employees had posted offensive material. Ocasio-Cortez was the subject of some of this material. ProPublica, a self-described non-profit news group, reportedly has obtained screenshots of doctored images of Ocasio-Cortez, including one that shows a smiling President Trump forcing her head toward his crotch.

According to Politico, top CBP officials had known about offensive posts “for up to three years” – even though officials claimed this week that they had only recently learned about them. “Looks like CBP lied,” Ocasio-Cortez charged Thursday, one day after the Politico story appeared. “Reporting shows they knew about it for *years.* This is a big deal.”

Ted Cruz schools Kaepernick, adds ‘context’ after ex-NFL star quotes Frederick Douglass ‘Fourth of July’ speech
Sen. Ted Cruz responded Thursday night after former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick posted a passage earlier on the Fourth of July from a famous speech by Civil War-era abolitionist Frederick Douglass. The passage Kaepernick cites is from Douglass’ speech, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” Douglass delivered to the speech at a meeting of the Rochester Ladies’ Anti-Slavery Society in Rochester, N.Y., on July 5, 1852 – nearly nine years before the Civil War began.

Kaepernick posted the following portion, without adding any comments: “What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence? This Fourth of July is yours, not mine…There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour.” “You quote a mighty and historic speech by the great abolitionist Frederick Douglass,” Sen. Cruz writes in response, “but, without context, many modern readers will misunderstand.”

Closely watched June jobs report to be released Friday
Wall Street will be closely watching Friday’s release of the June jobs report, which could provide insight into whether the Federal Reserve will cut interest rates at its July meeting. As the U.S. enters the longest economic expansion on record, investors are looking at the Department of Labor’s monthly payroll and unemployment data for signs that the rapid job growth over the past two years is softening and lending way to an overall growth slowdown.

Navy Pier ‘chaos’ after Chicago fireworks show leaves 3 stabbed, 14 trampled: reports

At least three people were stabbed and more than a dozen injured in a subsequent stampede after panic broke out at Chicago’s Navy Pier on Thursday following a Fourth of July fireworks show, police said.

The stabbings came after an argument broke out on the pier around 10 p.m., Chicago police Sgt. Rocco Alioto said at a news conference. Police believe someone shouted “Gun!” in the crowd, causing people to panic, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

“Just chaos. Chaos. That’s all it was,” a 45-year-old woman visiting the pier told the newspaper. “We got separated from each other because everyone went in different directions when it started. But thank God, He got us all back together. That’s all that matters.”

“Just chaos. Chaos. That’s all it was.”

— Navy Pier visitor

MAN, 61, DIES IN FIREWORKS MISHAP AS NEIGHBORHOOD KIDS WATCH: ‘THEY’RE PROBABLY TRAUMATIZED RIGHT NOW’

At least 14 people were hospitalized for non-life-threatening injuries suffered in the stampede, Alioto said. The three people with stab wounds were taken to local hospitals in serious-to-critical condition, Chicago’s WMAQ-TV reported.

Earlier reports that someone was also shot were false, police said. A fourth person,  who was originally believed to have been shot, actually suffered a bad puncture wound from banging into an overturned table as he fled the scene, police confirmed. That individual was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, but his condition was unknown, WMAQ reported.

It remained unclear what prompted the stabbings, and the victims were “not cooperating” with investigators, Alioto said. The investigation is ongoing.

Several children were separated from their parents in the uproar. Navy Pier’s Guest Services organized family reunifications, according to Chicago Scanner reporter Eric Tendian, who was tweeting updates as the incident unfolded. Thousands of others live-streaming from the pier showed a heavy police presence at the scene, according to the Sun-Times.

Everyone who entered Navy Pier for the fireworks display had to go through a police checkpoint, Alioto said. The stabbings occurred outside the “secure” area of the pier, he said.

Nashville officer killed after 17-year-old driving without a license slammed into his police vehicle while on duty, police say

A Tennessee police officer was killed while on duty Thursday when his marked police car was struck by a 17-year-old motorist who was driving without a license, according to the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department.

Officer John Anderson, a four-year veteran of the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (MNPD) and a father of an 18-month-old son, was hit around 3 a.m. Thursday when he was heading to an interstate to assist a fellow officer with a pedestrian who was reported to have been in a traffic lane waving his arms, police said.

Anderson’s police vehicle was “violently struck” on the driver’s side by a 2016 Ford Fusion driven by 17-year-old Jayona Brown, according to police.

NASHVILLE MAN CHARGED WITH LGBT HATE CRIME IN CONNECTICUT OVER CHURCH VANDALISM: POLICE

Brown was booked into juvenile detention on charges of vehicular homicide by recklessness, felony evading arrest, aggravated assault by recklessness, driving on a suspended license and juvenile curfew violation.

According to a preliminary investigation, Anderson, 28, was hit by Brown after she failed to stop for a flashing red traffic light at Woodland Street and Interstate Drive in Nashville, police said.

Officer Anderson died at the scene.  Brown was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, where she was treated and released. Police said Brown’s passenger was critically injured and is being treated at another local hospital.

Minutes before the collision, police said a DUI unit officer in an unmarked police car saw the Ford Fusion commit a lane violation and got behind the car.  The officer activated his blue lights to stop the car and police said Brown pulled to the right and slowed down, but did not stop.  When the officer activated his siren, Brown sped away, police said.

Police said the car was not reported stolen since it belonged to Brown’s aunt, and the officer decided not to pursue it. The officer did, however, radio that the car did not stop for him and provided the license plate number, according to police.

Nashville’s mayor, David Briley, tweeted on Thursday that “this tragedy is a stark reminder of our officers’ selfless pledge to protect and serve our city – and we will be forever grateful.”

“When our city experiences tragedy, we come together as one community to support and lift each other up. I know that will happen today and in the weeks to come. My thoughts are with the family and friends of Officer Anderson and our entire police force,” Briley also tweeted.

Anderson graduated from the MNPD academy in June 2015 and was also a member of the department’s Drill & Ceremony Team. He was a member of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve as well.

MISS HOOTERS TENNESSEE CONTESTANT ARRESTED FOR ALLEGEDLY THRASHING BOYFRIEND’S HOUSE: REPORT

Officer Anderson received the MNPD’s Lifesaving Award in 2017 for saving a victim who had a deep wound after being stabbed. Police said Anderson minimized his blood loss until medics arrived on scene.

Anderson received the Lifesaving Award again in 2018 for saving a suicidal man who was about jump off a bridge.

Anderson also received the Department Commendation Award in 2019 for responding to a reported robbery of a business and arresting two suspects after a “several hours long standoff,” police said.

When Anderson and other officers first responded to the business “all appeared normal,” according to police.

“Rather than just leave, they continued to investigate and found a clerk hiding in a cooler in the back of the convenience store,” police said, adding that the clerk advised that the two suspects were in the office and that one was armed with a gun. Police added that the clerk told officers she had hidden in the cooler after calling 911.

Eva Kor, Holocaust survivor, dies peacefully at age 85

Eva Kor, a Holocaust survivor who founded the CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Educational Center in Indiana, died peacefully on Thursday during her annual trip to Poland. She was 85.

Kor, a Jewish native of Romania, was sent to the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp in 1944, where most of her family was killed.

Kor and her twin sister, Miriam Mozes Zeiger, survived but were subjected to inhumane medical experiments by Nazi doctor Josef Mengele before they were rescued in 1945.

LIBERAL SITE RIPS HOLOCAUST MUSEUM FOR ITS ‘DREADFUL’ INTERVENTION IN ‘CONCENTRATION CAMPS’ DEBATE

Zeiger died in June 1993.

A longtime resident of Terre Haute, Indiana, Kor preached forgiveness, even to the Nazis who tortured her and her sister.

She spent the past 40 years sharing her story with students, teachers, doctors, senators, historians and civic groups both nationally and internationally.

In 1995, Kor opened the CANDLES museum to prevent prejudice and hatred through education about the Holocaust. In 2003, the museum was destroyed by an arsonist. Kor vowed to rebuild and, with the public’s help, reopened the museum in 2005.

“Eva Kor has touched hundreds of thousands of people over her 85 years through her message of overcoming tragedy, finding forgiveness, and healing,” the CANDLES museum said in a statement. “We hope Eva’s story continues to change the lives of those who hear it for many years to come.”

Museum officials said the center will be closed until Tuesday in honor of Kor’s memory.

In 2017, Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb awarded Kor the Sachem Award, the state’s highest honor.

Holcomb tweeted Thursday that “the world just lost a giant.”

“Everywhere she went, Eva brought light into darkness & provided comfort to those in pain, unlike anyone we’ve ever met. From her against all odds survival as a young girl in Auschwitz to her peace-spreading message based from home in Terre Haute, Indiana, her relentless and optimistic example inspired the world. Her angelic spirit will live on in the countless souls she saved from ongoing confusion and torment,” Holcomb tweeted.

A public memorial service will be planned.
