Leo Terrell slams DNC tweet tying Mount Rushmore to 'white supremacy' as 'the race card at its highest level'

Rep. Andy Biggs says Trump’s critics are trying to sow division with complaints over Mount Rushmore event

President Trump set to kick off a historic July Fourth celebration at Mount Rushmore; reaction from civil rights attorney Leo Terrell, Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs and Jenna Ellis, senior legal adviser to Trump 2020 campaign.

Civil rights attorney Leo Tyrrell told "Hannity" Friday that a now-deleted tweet from the Democratic National Committee that tried to link Mount Rushmore with "white supremacy" made him "embarrassed to be a Democrat."

On Monday, the DNC's Twitter account @TheDemocrats posted the message: "Trump has disrespected Native communities time and again. He's attempted to limit their voting rights and blocked critical pandemic relief. Now he's holding a rally glorifying white supremacy at Mount Rushmore- a region once sacred to tribal communities."

"[Mount Rushmore] is a great place for the president to celebrate our nation's birthday," Terrell told "Hannity" guest host Jason Chaffetz ahead of Trump's address at the national monument.

"That tweet — I want people to hear this," Terrell went on. "The Democratic Party calling this a 'white supremacy' meeting is the race card at its highest level and that came from the Democratic Party."

Tyrrell added that instead of looking to Trump to "find a racist," they should "go back to Joe Biden insulting every African-American … and secondly, Kamala Harris calling Joe Biden a racist."

"The bottom line is simply this," Terrell concluded. "If you are a Democrat, you can be a racist. But the point here is, you accuse the Republicans of being racist and there is no evidence of that whatsoever. It's embarrassing and I am embarrassed to be a Democrat tonight."
