Thanks for joining us this Independence Day! We hope you’re enjoying the barbecue and fireworks. President Donald Trump has said the firework display in D.C. will be “the show of a lifetime,” but of course, it hasn’t come without controversy. Many a liberal and libertarian has knocked the idea of military parade. Today we’ll consider what kind of July 4 celebration is most fitting with the American tradition. But first, we’ll play a historic Fourth of July speech from President Ronald Reagan.

We also cover these stories:
-Trump contradicts Department of Commerce on 2020 census, says he is “absolutely moving forward” with citizenship question
-Iran warns Europe it increase uranium enrichment even further if a new deal isn’t reached
-A judge blocks the Trump administration’s policy keeping asylum-seekers detained
