Donald Trump is defending American culture from a vicious onslaught from the American Left trying to erase the nation’s history.
But the President got some bad news.
And it’s all because Republicans just took one vote that will leave Donald Trump red with rage.
Donald Trump recently announced his opposition to renaming military bases named after Confederate Generals.
“It has been suggested that we should rename as many as 10 of our Legendary Military Bases, such as Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Hood in Texas, Fort Benning in Georgia, etc,” the President wrote on social media.
“These Monumental and very Powerful Bases have become part of a Great American Heritage, and a history of Winning, Victory, and Freedom. The United States of America trained and deployed our HEROES on these Hallowed Grounds, and won two World Wars. Therefore, my Administration will not even consider the renaming of these Magnificent and Fabled Military Installations Our history as the Greatest Nation in the World will not be tampered with. Respect our Military!” President Trump added.
But Republican Senators working behind closed doors on the National Defense Authorization Act passed an amendment by Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren – with a voice vote to avoid accountability to voters – to begin the process of renaming bases named after confederate generals over the next three years.
CBS News exclusively reported that:
A source familiar with the proceedings confirmed to CBS News that the GOP-led panel on Wednesday approved the amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) offered by Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts via voice vote. According to a summary of the NDAA released by the committee Thursday, the measure requires the Defense Department to rename posts and assets — streets, aircraft, ships, and other equipment — either named for Confederate officers or that honor the confederacy within three years.
President Trump has said this is a nonstarter for him.
But now Senate RINOs are teaming with Democrats to hold military funding hostage to force President Trump to accept erasing American history.
