President Trump on Twitter: 'Sad' to see Confederate monuments removed

How Charlottesville Hasn’t Yet Changed The Confederate Monument Debate

President Donald Trump said on Twitter yesterday that he was "sad" to see U.S. history torn apart by the removal of "our handsome statues and monuments".

Trump was widely condemned by Democrats and Republicans alike for those remarks, which critics argued amounted to a defense of white supremacy.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan also pushed to remove a statue of Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger Taney, who authored the landmark 1857 Supreme Court Dred Scott decision that said blacks were not considered American citizens and the federal government couldn't regulate slavery. Confederate women's groups helped raise funds for numerous monuments.

Ignoring the outcry over his response to the Charlottesville protests, President Trump on Thursday further waded into the controversy, calling it "foolish" to remove "our attractive statues and monuments". Similar reports are coming from other parts of the country as well.

"Robert E Lee, Stonewall Jackson - who's next, Washington, Jefferson?" There are parks, schools and army bases named after confederate leaders and generals.

"I would say that's up to a local town, community, or the federal government, depending on where it is located", he said Tuesday.

At least seven people were arrested in Durham County, North Carolina, for tearing down a statue of a Confederate solider on their own on Monday. She said she told herself: "There are enough grandstanding speeches being made". We are ashamed of the monument'.

The list of Confederate symbols also includes 109 public schools - at least 39 of which were built during the civil rights movement, after the Brown v. Board of Education case desegregating public schools in the United States. "Confederate memorabilia have no place in this country and especially not in the US Capitol", he said.

Mentioning that the current unfolding of events in Virginia is not linked to his presidency, Trump said, "It has been going on for a long time in our country - not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama".
