Even as many Republicans and conservatives fold to the left-wing mob, President Donald Trump is standing strong and defending patriotic Americans who fly the Confederate Flag.
President Trump appeared on an edition of “Fox News Sunday” where he discussed the controversial flag and gave his opinion about its use. He was asked if he found the flag to be offensive.
“It depends on who you’re talking about, when you’re talking about,” Trump said in response. “When people proudly had their Confederate flags they’re not talking about racism. They love their flag, it represents the South. They like the South … I say it’s freedom of many things, but it’s freedom of speech.”
President Trump is bucking the trend of throwing U.S. history under the bus to appease unruly Black Lives Matter supremacists. He has stood against the push to rename military bases named after Confederate generals as well.
Big League Politics reported on how Trump has gone as far as threatening to veto legislation that would rename the military bases:
President Donald Trump threatened to veto any edition of the annual National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that requires the renaming of U.S. military bases named after Confederate Army generals. Democratic Senators, including Elizabeth Warren, are pushing a provision that will rename the facilities.
The President made it clear any NDAA that renames that bases won’t receive his signature. In a tweet, President Trump cited the legacy of the bases in America’s victory in the two World Wars of the twentieth century.
Republicans had declined to stand up against the drive to purge the names of iconic American military installations such as Fort Bragg and Fort Benning, with only populist conservative Josh Hawley offering opposition to the cultural cleansing attempt when it passed through the Democrat-controlled Senate Armed Services Committee.
Polling conducted on the matter reveals that a strong majority of the American public opposes purging the names of the bases from record because of their association with the Confederacy.
There are ten total U.S. Army bases named after Confederate military leaders, most of them located in the southern United States and named as such as a gesture of reconciliation to the South in the Reconstruction period and beyond.
When asked about renaming the military bases named after Confederate generals, President Trump had another colorful response for biased fake news anchor Chris Wallace.
“Go to that community where Fort Bragg is, in a great state, I love that state, go to the community, say how do you like the idea of renaming Fort Bragg, and then what are we going to name it?” Trump asked.
“We’re going to name it after the Reverend Al Sharpton?” Trump added. “What are you going to name it, Chris, tell me what you’re going to name it?”
President Trump is a cultural force against political correctness and for common sense. He is hoping that will be enough to win a second term in the White House against a backdrop of virus hysteria and race riots.
President Donald Trump Reduced Afghanistan War Casualties by 98 Percent Compared to Obama’s First Term
This is what “America First” foreign policy is all about.
President Donald Trump’s foreign policy achievements have largely been hidden from the public, with the fake news media and Democrats preferring to focus on fake Russian collusion stories rather than highlighting the president’s efforts to get the troops out of harm’s way.
Libertarian-leaning Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) pointed out the facts regarding the president’s foreign policy record, showing that Trump’s foreign policy in Afghanistan has resulted in a sharp reduction in casualties in America’s longest war:
Why won’t the press report this? US Military casualties in the war in Afghanistan:

The majority of Obama’s casualties came in his first term, when he doubled down on the Afghan war with a troop surge. He sent more troops into harm’s way without anything to show for it except for more blood. There were an incredible 2,196 troops killed in Afghanistan during Obama’s first term, and he was given a Nobel Peace Prize before his brutal policies ever really took effect.
Big League Politics reported earlier this month when President Trump pledged to bring all U.S. troops home from Afghanistan by Christmas:
President Trump issued a surprise announcement on the American military presence in Afghanistan, stating that all troops would be removed from the country by Christmas in a Wednesday evening tweet.
The announcement represents a new imperative to end the American presence in Afghanistan, which has qualified as the lengthiest war in American history.
Deep State bureaucrats have consistently fought to stonewall President Trump’s initiative to end American involvement in the failed state once and for all.
Afghanistan has been made the beneficiary of billions of dollars in American foreign aid and military assistance, but the nation’s government is still largely unable to stand on its own two feet. The Afghan Taliban continues to govern large swathes of the country, and regularly carries out terrorist attacks that inflict significant casualties on the Afghan Army.
Joe Biden is largely silent on Afghanistan, stating that he’ll end the war but clarifying that he only plans to return home the “majority” of service members stationed in the country. President Trump has already withdrawn thousands of American military personnel deployed to the country. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo has been overseeing efforts to reach a final peace agreement with the Taliban in which they’d recognize the country’s feeble government.
The leaked Afghanistan Papers have revealed an enduring pattern of misconduct and deception on the part of senior government officials, who regularly sugarcoated the progress that the military was making in installing a Jeffersonian-style democracy in the troubled central Asian nation. Afghanistan is bitterly divided along sectarian, tribal and religious lines, and the region’s involvement in the decline of the Soviet Union and the British Empire have led some to style it as the “graveyard of empires.”
President Trump has made great progress toward putting the troops first despite tremendous institutional impediments from the military-industrial complex. He is clearly the peace candidate, running against the reckless imperial foreign policy of Obama/Biden, on the ballot for this election.
