Trump takes to Twitter to Defend “Beautiful” Confederate Statues

President Trump on Thursday morning bemoaned the tearing down of Confederate statues and monuments in a series of tweets.

Trump said it was “sad” for the “History and Culture” of the U.S. “being ripped apart” by the removal of these statues and monuments after taking issue with two Republican senators earlier in the tweet storm for their criticism of his remarks where he said both sides were to blame for the weekend’s violence.

The tweets follow his comments from Tuesday where he claimed by removing the statues, governments and activists are “changing history, you’re changing culture.”
