The vicious, left-wing press asked Press Secretary Kayleitg McEnany what the President thought about renaming current military installations that are currently named for Confederate military commanders. 

Her reply:  It's a non-starter.

Good for President Trump.  Forts Benning, Bragg, Polk, and Hood, among others are part of our great military history.  Many units in the Army today trace their lineage back to before the Civil War and some of those units served in the Confederate Army.  One such unit, the 141st Field Artillery (Washington Artillery) has served in every American conflict since the War of 1812. 

Re-naming poss today is a non-starter with President Trump, and I agree with him.

A better place to start would be renaming all the federal buildings, naval vessels and other places that are named for the signers of the Southern Manifesto. That was a true racist document signed by actual racists.

I really wish they'd just stop with the re-writing of history in the US.
