"I am signing an executive order to establish the National Garden of American Heroes, a vast outdoor park that will feature the statues of the greatest Americans to ever live," he said.

The order also contained a list of U.S. historical figures who will receive statues in the garden, and it declared that the park should opened for public access before the 250th anniversary of the proclamation of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 2026.
