Critics Slam Trump's Defense Of Traitors Of The U.S.

In US news and current events today, critics continue to slam President Donald Trump over his refusal to rename military bases that are currently named in honor of treasonous Confederate generals who took up arms against the United States and killed thousands of Americans in the pursuit of keeping an entire race enslaved.

As President Donald J Trump Press Secretary pointed out, President Trump has no intention of renaming Ft. Bragg and numerous other military bases named after Confederate traitors. This comes on the heels of numerous Confederate statues being removes and the Confederate flag, the stars and bars, being banned in an increasing number of places. Confederate hagiography isn't a valuable historical lesson, these monuments were created during Jim Crow as a reminder to Black people that while the war may have been lost, many in the South and across the US continue to fight against equality and racial justice. In a new Lincoln Project ad and VoteVets ad, the Lincoln Project video and the Vote Vets video both take Trump to task over his reluctance to condemn the Confederacy, a position which is becoming increasingly untenable in light of the Black Lives Matter movement and Black Lives Matter protests that rose to global prominence after the police killing of George Floyd.
