a controversial move trump chose the venue for this year's festivities in a divisive speech he criticized recent protests against racial injustice as a quote campaign to wipe out our history. while trump has also promised a night to remember on the national mall in washington d.c. tens of thousands are expected to gather to watch flyovers and fireworks displays in other parts of the country though 4th of july displays and parades have been canceled due to fears of a further spread of the coronavirus with experts calling on americans to practice social distancing at public and private gatherings not many feel like celebrating the national holiday didn't use all of his ballot has more last chance to enjoy mt washington mall before the celebrations begin this is where a large crowds will cheer to fly overs and fly a works on america's national holiday because already for tens of thousands of
visitors but not everyone here feels will of being among masses of people at the height of a global pandemic and makes me anxious to be like around the crowd to be honest so that's what i want to be. but i think i think it. sucks that you know we won't be able to celebrate the way we used to those past years but we're going to try to make the most of it with you know family and close friends that we've been kind of with during the last few months. this year the 4th of july will be a completely different holiday number one because a security fence will set up you're keeping people away from the white tolls for security reasons us we're expecting many protests potentially riots on the 4th of july and later on saturday this is where the president will deliver his speech addressing the nation. at the black live smatter applause a t. shirt vendors are hoping for a good business and a large turnout. so
a lot. of. liberties that we have achieved for over 200 years. should apply to everyone and obviously this. demonstration sure problematic for everyone i just hope that more and more people will wearables my ass because that is so critical at this point. holiday under strain by the pun demick and racial divisions this year not everyone feels like celebrating. well let's cross over to ian as poll data is washington bureau chief in as today's the 4th of july a big holiday for americans but how is the country celebrating as corona virus infections are surging across the country yeah right really differently you know i'm right here in front of the white house where president will deliver another
speak and she promises the biggest fireworks ever but they are actually really few people here are in the constitution avenue where normally the big parade is taking place is going to happen this year but hardly anybody is out here yet and when you talk to people you hear that many rather stay at home because other than the president their fear to get infected. all right will president trump a barely mentions the coronavirus during his earlier speech at mount rushmore instead use the appearance to accuse protesters who've been toppling confederate monuments of trying to erase history let's listen to a short short clip from that speech there is a growing danger that threatens every blessing. a recess for so hard for struggled they bled to secure our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history to fame our heroes a race of values and indoctrinate our children all right and as what's your take on
all this well you know the united states is in the really critical phase there is in the one hand cope with 19 in many parts of the country the health care systems are just overwhelmed then sure we have also the economical implication of this pandemic but here it's another problem this country is as divided as never before and instead of using this moment to bring people together to uni fi people president trump was staring fear of cultural change and as we just heard he says frames protesters as leftwing mob that will destroy america as we know it so instead of calming the country bringing it together on this very holy day on this important holiday he's putting oil in the fire well with that level of division and
mind are you expecting to see protests alongside the celebrations. yes indeed we do there at least 20 protesters also already announced and we had the chance to talk to some of them this morning on the streets there actually quite some native americans who also want to protest against what trump said president trump said last night obviously that black lives measure the movement will be on the streets so we will keep you guys posted what's going on today in as paul in washington d.c. thank you. well let's go now to some of the other stories making news around the world pubs in england are welcoming patrons again after a 4 month coronavirus shut down restaurants and hair salons have also been allowed to reopen the changes don't apply to wales or scotland or northern ireland which have been setting their own timetables for easing restrictions. on german

sports correspondent oliver moody who is standing by in front of berlin's olympic stadium good to see you all over but there's barely a fan in sight as i still feel like cup final day. it does not really clever be honest with you i've been in berlin for plenty of german cup finals and usually you see the city full of passionate football fans like the ones we met in the report just there the trains to the stadium are packed as well today i just had a very eerie kind of walk from the station to the olympic stadium here behind me there are a few fans milling about i think just sort of curious about how a cup final without supporters looks but really there's no atmosphere at all to speak of we've seen from a sporting perspective that the strategy that german football has followed has more or less work to allow the bundesliga to get through to the end of the season successfully and i'm sure the players a used to it too i don't think they'll be too badly affected by it but i think i speak for everybody who loves german football when i say that i hope this is not
just the 1st ghost final we have but also the last one i'm sure there are many with the same sentiments but unlike in the bundesliga the german cup has had several different winners in the last 5 years do you think leverkusen it can challenge byron well certainly by and have lost a couple of finals over the last decade including just a couple of years ago against frankfurt and on top of that leverkusen are certainly one of the teams in germany that you would say could give byron a run for their money they have indeed beaten by an once already this season in the league they had a good season they were unlucky to finish outside of the champions league places this would be the perfect way to make good on that they have a very talented squad particularly in the form of chi habits who is possibly the most wanted player in the bundesliga and pitt's a boss will be hoping to continue the dutch tradition of winning german cup finals no doubt coaches of the last one and all of a movie at the olympic stadium that thank you so much for your reporting.
