In the U.S. state of South Dakota, the president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe has ordered President Donald Trump to cancel a planned visit to Mount Rushmore on July 3rd for his Independence Day celebration.

Julian Bear Runner told The Guardian: “The lands on which that mountain is carved and the lands he’s about to visit belong to the Great Sioux nation under a treaty signed in 1851 and the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1868 and I have to tell him he doesn’t have permission from its original sovereign owners to enter the territory at this time.”

In related news, South Dakota Republican Governor Kristi Noem said Tuesday the thousands of people attending Trump’s Mount Rushmore event will not be required to wear a mask or to remain six feet apart.  Noem told reportes: “We’ll be giving out free face masks, if they choose to wear one, but we won’t be social distancing.”
