Trump stands his ground despite push after George Floyd death to rename U.S. Army bases

As people continue to protest police brutality and racial discrimination after the death of George Floyd while he was in the custody of a Minneapolis police officer. Now they are coming for the names of our U.S. Army bases. President Donald Trump said in a tweet about the matter, “we will not even consider” changing the names of our U.S. Army bases named after generals who fought for the confederacy states during the civil war.

The president also tweeted, “Our history as the Greatest Nation in the World will not be tampered with. Respect our Military!”. This all came about when a spokesman for the U.S. Army said, “The secretary of the Army is open to having a bipartisan conversation regarding the renaming.”. They are not even going for one they are trying to change the names of up to 10 U.S. Army bases, including Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Hood in Texas, Fort Benning in Georgia, and many more.

According to CNBC

Trump, in a multitweet post, rejected that idea, by contending that the Confederate names of the bases have become part of the nation’s great “heritage.”

“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. These Monumental and very Powerful Bases have become part of a Great American Heritage, and a history of Winning, Victory, and Freedom,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

“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,” the president wrote.

The White House’s Twitter account later posted a video from Trump’s spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany to reiterate his position.
