A U.S. representative from Minnesota says President Donald Trump is hijacking the nation’s Fourth of July festivities. Democratic Rep. Betty McCollum harshly criticized the president for marshaling tanks, bombers and other military machinery for this year’s Independence Day celebration. She says Trump is twisting the traditionally patriotic event into a taxpayer-funded, partisan event to promote a “Trumpian cult of personality.”
