This is What the White House Had to Say About DC Mayor’s Plan to Remove National Monuments

The White House has issued a statement in response to DC Mayor Muriel Bowser’s plan to move or remove our national monuments.

“By publishing a plan that recommends potentially removing the Washington Monument, Christopher Columbus Statue, Andrew Jackson Statue, and Jefferson Memorial — among many other ludicrous recommendations — the radically liberal mayor of Washington, D.C., is repeating the same left-wing narrative used to incite dangerous riots: demolishing our history and destroying our great heritage,” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said.

Will the fact that Donald Trump is president stall these developments? McEnany thinks so. She said “as long as President Trump is in the White House, the mayor’s irresponsible recommendations will go absolutely nowhere, and as the mayor of our Nation’s capital city — a city that belongs to the American people — she ought to be ashamed for even suggesting them for consideration.”

Bowser is not ashamed. What’s going to happen if we allow anarchists to tear down monuments to our nation’s great founders and leaders, men who drafted documents to ensure that Americans had the right to criticize their government? Do these rioters understand the irony?

The president does have the power and authority to prevent the monuments’ physical destruction, but he can’t stop historical revisionism.

The White House said that our nation’s capital “is rightly filled with countless markers, memorials, and statues to honor and respect the men and women who built this country.”

  1. Congress needs to change DC mayoral term to four years coinciding with presidential elections and voted for on the same ticket nationwide. DC belongs to America.

  2. There are a few basic questions that matter here and also regarding the previously attacked and destroyed statues and monuments. Based on our National Capital being Washington it not FEDERAL PROPERTY owned by ALL Americans? Do ALL monuments and statues sit on Federal property? What does this excuse for a Mayor actually govern? Hasn’t ALL destruction we’ve seen been CRIMINAL allowed by weak supportive LEFTIST Mayors? Could the local and state police handle this outrageous crime of looting rioting arson be eliminated if NOT for these complicit Mayors? Does DJT Constitutionally have the power to stop ALL to protect ALL Americans? I DO NOT support Confederate statues and monuments outside the South..especially Washington DC!
