George Conway's Group Slams Trump for Refusal to Rename Military Bases That Honor Confederates

Path 27

George Conway’s The Lincoln Project is calling out President Donald Trump’s refusal to discuss renaming U.S. Military bases honoring leaders of the Confederacy.

The Lincoln Project released a statement on Wednesday in response to Trump’s tweets doubling down on his refusal to rename military bases named after Confederate leaders.

Labeling him “the Confederacy’s second president,” the group lambasted the president for his stance and his latest actions.

“We never imagined when we named our initiative to defeat the re-election of Donald J. Trump, The Lincoln Project, that the president would go as far as honoring the Confederate Generals who fought against the United States of America to preserve slavery and uphold white supremacy,” the statement reads.

The statement continues, “For all intents and purposes, Donald Trump today became the Confederacy’s second president.” the Lincoln Project wrote, adding, “We cannot allow this.”
