Will President Trump Speak at the Statue of Liberty?

Some anti-Trump Democrats say the president should be excluded on the ground that his tough immigration stance mocks the statue’s welcoming spirit, epitomized by the famous lines on its bronze plaque from the Emma Lazarus poem: “Give me your tired, your poor, / Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”
“President Trump’s anti-immigrant rants and policies are diametrically opposed to everything the Statue of Liberty stands for,” said Dani Lever, a spokeswoman for Mr. Cuomo. “His attendance would be truly ironic, and the mere symbolism of it should be offensive to all Americans whose ancestors were guided into this country by her torch.”
