First daughter and special counselor Ivanka Trump also spoke out about her pride in Americans and her appreciation for the country.
"I am proud on so many levels, and really traveling this country has made me even more of a proud American today than at any other point in my life," she said in an interview with Fox News on Tuesday. "You see the spirit, the tenacity. You see the sacrifice."
"You meet with soldiers and sailors and their families, and you think about all the things that they're doing to ensure that the America we know remains true and can continue on," Trump continued.
The fireworks celebration on the National Mall is a large-scale event that attracts people from across the country to see the sparks fly in the nation's capital.
Trump is expected to hold a picnic honoring military families before watching Fourth of July fireworks this Tuesday.
