President Trump says in a new interview with the Washington Post that he’s not defending confederate memorials and that he supports “peaceful protests for racial injustice.”
He also rejected the charge he’s promoting hate: “The real hate is the hate from the other side on many of the things that we talk about.”
The interview, with columnist Marc A. Thiessen, took place in the Oval Office. Thiessen posted the first part from the interview Thursday.
Trump addressed media coverage of his Mount Rushmore speech, which several mainstream media outlets characterized as “dark.”
“It was the opposite of dark,” Trump said. “What’s dark is the other side. … They’re trying to take everything down.”
In the speech, Trump criticized the tearing down or removal of monuments of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant and several abolitionists.
Asked if he also was defending confederate statues, Trump told The Post: “Oh, I’m not. But I am adamant about defending the past. It’s part of our history. They’re taking down everything. They’re taking down history, they’re taking down so much, Marc. They’re taking down everything and they call it ‘cancel culture.’ I don’t think it’s a beautiful term, but it’s actually very descriptive. … They want to cancel everything. They want to cancel the good and the bad.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
