Trump’s face was added to it.
According to CNN, though, the President wants more.
It reported that a White House aide reached out to Noem last year to inquire about possibly adding Trump’s face to the landmark.
It’s not possible, according to Business Insider, because there’s no stable surface left for carving a fifth face.
But, according to the reports, it’s a dream of Trump’s and it’s something he has brought up more than once. In fact, Noem told South Dakota’s Argus Leader, he mentioned it during their first meeting in the Oval Office.
“He said, ‘Kristi, come on over here. Shake my hand,’” she said.
“I shook his hand, and I said, ‘Mr. President, you should come to South Dakota sometime. We have Mount Rushmore.’ And he goes, ‘Do you know it’s my dream to have my face on Mount Rushmore?’”
Noem said she started laughing.
“He wasn’t laughing,” she said. “So, he was totally serious.”
