Every institution in America is under attack right now.
Even the U.S. Armed forces.
And Donald Trump gave Democrats an ultimatum over the military that set up this major fight.
The Senate Armed Services Committee recently passed an amendment proposed by Elizabeth Warren to the National Defense Authorization Act that would rename military bases that bore the names of Confederate military generals.
This amendment passed by voice vote because Senators were too afraid to go on the record.
The full Senate is now debating the legislation and Donald Trump threw down a marker threatening to veto any bill that contained the Warren amendment erasing the names of ten American military bases.
“I will Veto the Defense Authorization Bill if the Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren (of all people!) Amendment, which will lead to the renaming (plus other bad things!) of Fort Bragg, Fort Robert E. Lee, and many other Military Bases from which we won Two World Wars, is in the Bill!” the President wrote.
President Trump is standing with the majority of the American people on protecting American history.
A recent ABC/Ipsos poll found 56 percent of Americans opposes renaming military bases that carry the names of Confederate generals.
Just 42 percent support this desire to wipe out American history.
Over 100 years ago the U.S. government decided to name some bases after Confederate generals to promote national healing and reconciliation after the Civil War.
These bases were not monuments to honor racism or slavery.
But now Congress is set for a showdown over how to treat American history.
And President Trump has made it clear that he will not allow the radical Left to erase America’s past.
