Trump Sides With White Supremacists Again, Praises ‘Beautiful Confederate Statues’

President Donald Trump on Thursday continued his early morning tweet storm by lamenting that “our beautiful” Confederate statues are being taken down all across the U.S. and saying it’s “sad.”

“Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments,” the president wrote on Twitter.

He followed up by saying, “You can’t change history, but you can learn from it. Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson – who’s next, Washington, Jefferson? So foolish!”

And then, “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!”
