Trump Backs Off Confederate Veto, But Don’t Worry, The Senate Chairman Promised Him Names Will Not Change

What’s Happening:

Despite a lack of support among regular Americans, Democrats and their left-wing activists want to “whitewash” our history.

They support the destruction of national monuments as well as historic statues. Even in Congress, lawmakers want to rename military bases named after Confederate leaders.

Trump promised to veto the upcoming Pentagon funding bill if it includes a section to rename bases.

But, according to what one Senate Chairman said, he won’t have to:

I spoke to highly respected (Chairman) Senator @JimInhofe, who has informed me that he WILL NOT be changing the names of our great Military Bases and Forts, places from which we won two World Wars (and more!). Like me, Jim is not a believer in “Cancel Culture”.

President Trump tweeted that Sen. Jim Inhofe promised that Congress will not be changing the names of military bases and forts.

This might be the first time the president himself mentioned the dreaded term “cancel culture” to describe the trend of left-wing activists of erasing our history and way of life.

The president reminded the country that these Army bases helped us win two world wars. Our military troops were trained and prepared these bases and others.

For years, President Trump has refused to embrace the movement to remove or rename Confederate leaders.

He warned that if we let radical activists erase the names of men like Robert E. Lee—because of their connection to slavery—it wouldn’t end there.

Trump said they would go after Founding Fathers like Washington and Jefferson. And, once again, Trump was right.

In recent months, radical activists have attacked statues of George Washington and other Fathers. They didn’t stop there. They also vandalized the Lincoln Memorial, dedicated to the man who ended slavery.

The president knows that removing statues and changing names is just an attempt to erode our national identity.

It is a common tactic among radicals who seek to overthrow society. Get people to forget or hate their history—and you can rewrite as you please.

Those behind this movement are admitted Marxists. There is nothing about our history or values they want to keep.

President Trump refuses to let them get away with it. And it looks like Congress is responding to his leadership.

Key Takeaways:

  • President Trump opposed a bill that would rename military bases named after Confederate leaders.
  • Inhofe promised that Congress will not be renaming these bases.
  • Trump has been a long-time critic of the movement to erase parts of our history.
