The Biden Administration is canceling the National Garden of Heroes Monument that the Trump administration had planned to build.
From The Daily Caller:
President Joe Biden revoked a swathe of former President Donald Trump’s executive orders Friday, including one directing the construction of a new national monument.
Biden revoked six Trump-era executive orders, orders that sought to prevent online censorship, hike consequences for vandalizing statues, build Trump’s “National Garden of American Heroes” and prevent certain regulatory overreach. Trump announced the new monument at an Independence Day celebration in front of North Dakota’s Mount Rushmore in 2020.

Trump had framed the orders on building the monument and penalizing vandalism of monuments as a rebuke to the widespread and often violent protests and riots taking place across the country at the time. (RELATED: Biden Has Issued 94 Executive Immigration Orders In His First 100 Days)
“Americans must never loose sight of this miraculous story,” Trump said of the American dream while announcing the monument. “So today under the authority vested in me as president of the United States, I am announcing the creation of a new monument to the giants of our past. I am signing an executive order to establish the National Garden of American Heroes, a vast outdoor park that will feature the statues of the greatest Americans to ever live.”
Trump has signed the executive order revealing who was going to be in the garden just days before he left office, this effort was never meant to be a partisan measure but celebrating American history has become partisan with the rise of Critical Race Theory.
