Trump perpetuates White Supremacy; won’t rename military bases named after Confederate traitors

Trump’s tweets come two days after an Army spokesman said Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy and Defense Secretary Mark Esper are “open” to renaming the bases.

The authority for naming and renaming bases rests with the Army, but it’s unlikely officials would proceed without Trump’s approval.

The Army said Wednesday it had no comment on Trump’s tweets.

There are 10 Army bases around the country named for Confederate military officers: Fort Lee, Fort Hood, Fort Benning, Fort Gordon, Fort Bragg, Fort Polk, Fort Pickett, Fort A.P. Hill, Fort Rucker and Camp Beauregard. All are located in Southern states.
