Trump Says Putting His Face On Mount Rushmore ‘Sounds Like A Good Idea,’ Dems Lose It Over Suggestion

President Trump got the last laugh after a new hit piece by The New York Times claimed he had inquired about adding his face to Mount Rushmore.

According to the report, Trump said: “Kristi, come on over here. Shake my hand,” to the North Dakota Governor. “I shook his hand, and I said: “Mr. President, you should come to South Dakota sometime. We have Mount Rushmore. And he goes: “Do you know it’s my dream to have my face on Mount Rushmore?”

Trump denied the story and then mocked the Times and all his doubters by saying he does deserve to be up there and “it sounds like a good idea to me.”


The Dems were not happy and immediately mocked Trump for the suggestion causing him to tweet out a picture with him and the monument.

From The New York Post:

President Trump on Sunday denied reports that the White House contacted the governor of South Dakota about carving his face into Mount Rushmore — but said that adding his likeness to the historic monument “sounds like a good idea to me!”

“This is Fake News by the failing @nytimes & bad ratings @CNN,” Trump fumed in a Twitter in a post linking to the report.

“Never suggested it although, based on all of the many things accomplished during the first 3 1/2 years, perhaps more than any other Presidency, sounds like a good idea to me!”

The New York Times article, published Saturday, states a White House rep reached out to South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem last year, inquiring about the process of adding Trump’s face to the nearly 80-year-old monument.

The story, which was later picked up by CNN, also notes Trump previously spoke to Noem about it himself during a meeting in the Oval Office.
