Unemployment funds, taxpayer money used for Trump’s visit on July 4th

Unemployment funds, taxpayer money used for Trump’s visit on July 4th

But KELOLAND News has found that the biggest chunk of money went to the federal agency responsible for managing the monument, the National Park Service. $350-thousand dollars went to Pyro Spectaculars Inc. The fund was created during the Mickelson administration to pay for things like school labs and job training programs. State government spending records filed with the state auditor’s office show the governor’s administration authorized transfers totaling $470-thousand dollars. $300-thousand on July first, 2020, and $170-thousand on July 22nd.

KELOLAND News has learned that Governor Noem used money set aside for the state’s unemployment fund to pay for the fireworks. 7,500 people got the privilege of seeing South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem host then President Donald Trump for a rare fireworks show.

Federal agency charged South Dakota taxpayers for Noem to host Trump at Mount Rushmore President Trump speaks at Mount Rushmore, announces plans for National Garden of monuments

So far, it doesn’t look like there will be a repeat performance this 4th of July. In March the National Park Service rejected South Dakota’s request to allow fireworks at Mt Rushmore citing potential risks to the monument, Native American objections and the Pandemic.   Source www.keloland.com Gov.

That information wasn’t previously disclosed. The payments went to the National Park Service office in Omaha, Nebraska.
