Sheriff Says Deputies Won’t Wear Masks At Trump’s Mount Rushmore Event
South Dakota Sheriff Kevin Thom said his deputies won't be wearing masks at President Trump's July 4th event at Mount Rushmore, because they have "freedom of choice."
"Masks are optional for our deputies. Generally, they won't be wearing them. ... We believe in our independent nature here, our freedom of choice. If they want to wear a mask they can. If they don't want to, they don't have to."
