US President Donald Trump is refusing to rechristen US military bases that are named after heroes of the Confederacy, who fought for the preservation of slavery in the 1861-65 American Civil War.

This week, the POTUS issued a series of tweets in which he stated that he was not interested in the idea of changing the names of US military bases that were named after Confederate generals.

Trump wrote that these military bases have become part of a “Great American Heritage,” with a “history of winning, victory, and freedom,” and therefore his administration will “not even consider the renaming of these magnificent and fabled military installations.” He added that the US’ “history as the greatest nation in the world will not be tampered with.” 

The president ended his comments by saying, “Respect our Military!”

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, a US-based civil rights group, has long called for renaming military bases that honor Confederate soldiers, asserting that the Confederate flag glorifies “treason and a hateful history of white supremacy and black subjugation.”

It makes one wonder: does Trump think he’s president of the United States, or the Confederate States?
