‘You can’t change history, but you can learn from it’: Trump says he’s unhappy to see Confederate statues being removed

President Donald Trump in a series of tweets Thursday morning
came out against the dismissal of Confederate statues.

“Sad to see the story and enlightenment of the good country being
ripped detached with the dismissal of the pleasing statues and
monuments,” Trump
tweeted.

“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 the cities, towns and
parks will be severely missed and never means to be comparably
replaced!”

Since the lethal white-nationalist convene in Charlottesville,
Virginia, last weekend, many
cities have sped up or announced plans to mislay Confederate
statues and monuments.

At a press discussion Tuesday, the boss refused to
definitely reject the hatred groups that visited
Charlottesville,
fortifying some demonstrators as wanting only to criticism the
designed dismissal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Critics of such statues contend they worship a coterie that took up
arms against the US to safety slavery.

“So this week it’s Robert E. Lee,” Trump pronounced at the press
conference. “I notice that Stonewall Jackson’s coming down,” he
added.

“I wonder: Is it George Washington next week, and is it Thomas
Jefferson the week after? You know, you really do have to ask
yourself — where does it stop?”
