CNN’s biggest drama queen Jim Acosta went to Trump Tower to complained that President Trump is comfortable saying ‘white nationalist’ ideas, such as not wanting to tear down George Washington’s statue!
“[Trump has] felt very comfortable espousing some views that are — very, I mean, I would say they’re almost white nationalist-lite, in that, he was complaining, bemoaning the removal of Confederate statues across the country and asking whether or not George Washington and Thomas Jefferson are next,” said Acosta. You hear that? If you don’t want George Washington’s statue torn down you are ‘white nationalist-lite’.
“Those symbols of the Confederacy cause so much hurt, cause so much pain for so many Americans across the country, that it is really understandable to most level-headed, rational Americans that these kinds of monuments, these kinds of symbols eventually just need to come down,” said Acosta.
“And to compare them to George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, I think that is just also going to be taken, Wolf, as a sign that the president perhaps needs a refresher course, needs to go back to History 101. Because I think those kinds of remarks are just going to be deeply, deeply unsettling. And keep in mind, in just the last several minutes, David Duke, the former Grand Wizard of the KKK, put out a statement thanking the president for what he said, praising the president for what he said,” said Acosta.
Since President Trump made his comments, Al Sharpton, CNN, and others have advocated for tearing down the statues of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington.
