Trump 'will not even consider' renaming Army bases named for Confederate leaders

 


President Trump said Wednesday he will "not even consider" renaming Army bases that were named for Confederate leaders after top military officials indicated recently they are open to the idea.

In a series of tweets, Trump argued the bases have become part of U.S. history that should not be “tampered with.”

“These Monumental and very Powerful Bases have become part of a Great American Heritage, and a history of Winning, Victory, and Freedom,” he tweeted, adding that “HEROES” who won two world wars were trained on the “Hallowed Grounds” of the bases.
