CNN's Camerota asks if Trump will give 'foaming at the mouth' speech on July 4

CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota asked during an interview Monday if President TrumpDonald John TrumpHillary Clinton responds to Chrissy Teigen tweet: 'I love you back' Police called after Florida moms refuse to wear face masks at school board meeting about mask policy Supreme Court rejects Trump effort to shorten North Carolina mail-ballot deadline MORE's reported plans to speak at a July 4 celebration in Washington, D.C., will include giving a "foaming at the mouth" speech "where people in the crowd clamor for violence."

The question came during Camerota's interview with Washington Post reporter Josh Dawsey on "New Day."

“The president very much wants to give this speech, it sounds like, from the Lincoln Memorial," the former "Fox & Friends" host said to Dawsey, who is also a CNN contributor. "And you write, ‘The president's starring role has the potential to turn what has long been a nonpartisan celebration of the nation’s founding into another version of a Trump campaign rally.' "

“I’m just wondering, Josh, I mean what kind of speech would he give? Would he give a presidential speech, or would he give one of these sort of foaming at the mouth speech that we sometimes see at the rallies where they clamor — you know we heard it just last week — where people in the crowd clamor for violence?” Camerota asked.

"I think his advisers themselves don’t know what he’s going to say before he gets up there,” Dawsey replied. “The speech will supposedly be about America and patriotism and the economy and his administration’s accomplishments and kind of a rah-rah speech."

The Washington Post reported last week that plans are in the works for Trump to address the nation from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on July 4, while moving the city's traditional fireworks display from the steps of the Capitol Reflecting Pool to nearby West Potomac Park.

"But the president often goes off teleprompter, as we’ve seen time and time again," Dawsey added. "So what he would actually say from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial with the assembled throngs out there, it’s really hard to know.”

During a campaign-style rally in Panama City, Fla., on Wednesday, Trump joked with the audience after someone in the crowd yelled that migrants seeking to cross the southern border illegally should be shot.

"Don’t forget, we don’t let them and we can’t let them use weapons,” Trump said about U.S. border agents. “We can’t. Other countries do. We can’t. I would never do that. But how do you stop these people? You can’t.”

“Shoot them!” an unidentified person yelled from the crowd, according to several press reports.
 
Cheers came up from the crowd as Trump smiled and shook his head. 

“That’s only in the Panhandle you can get away with that statement,” Trump said. “Only in the Panhandle.”
