Donald Trump Sadden By Removal of Confederate Statues: ‘You Can’t Change History’

After making controversial statements last weekend following the race riots in Charlottesville, Virgina, Donald Trump continues to show subtle support for white supremacy.

In several tweets made on Thursday morning (Aug. 17), Trump stated that he thought it was “so sad” that the history and culture of the United States is being “ripped apart” by those who are removing Confederate statues and other monuments across the nation.

Trump also added that, while you “can’t change history,” you can “learn from it.” He applies the current line of thinking, in terms of removing any physical manifestation or reference that can be seen in public to Robert E. Lee or Stonewall Jackson, to something that could harm the images or former Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Both of those men were also slave owners at one time in history.
