Defiant Trump Doubles Down, Defends “Beautiful” Confederate Statues

Defiant Trump Doubles Down, Defends “Beautiful” Confederate Statues:

President Trump just dropped a brand new tweet storm doubling down on comments he made at an impromptu press conference earlier this week that sparked a media firestorm and left many calling, yet again, for his immediate resignation.

Responding to actions taken around the country to remove confederate statues in the wake of the violence in Charlottesville last weekend, Trump said it’s “sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart.”

Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments. You can’t change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson – who’s next, Washington, Jefferson? So foolish!

Also the beauty that is being taken out of our cities, towns and parks will
be greatly missed and never able to be comparably replaced!

 

We’re awaiting confirmation from CNN that these tweets are just the latest evidence of Trump’s sympathy for white supremacist groups which prove that he is unfit for office.
