Donald Trump condemns the removal of ‘beautiful’ statues of Confederate generals and slave ownersDonald Trump has again waded into the storm surrounding his comments over the violence in Charlottesville, saying that the removal of statues of Confederate generals makes him “sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart”. Mr Trump’s latest remarks come as the White House looks for ways to manage the fallout from his response to the racially charged protests at the weekend, as he continues to isolate himself amid widespread criticism. The President also tweeted “you can’t change history, but you can learn from it”, appearing to imply that keeping the statues up would be a reminder of the country’s Civil War bloodshed and the scourge of slavery.
