FNC: Va. Church Removing George Washington Plaque as Parishioners Feel ‘Unsafe’
EARHARDT: “President Trump warned of what could happen if we keep erasing history.”
TRUMP: “George Washington was a slave owner. Was George Washington a slave owner? So, will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down — excuse me, are we going to take down statues to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson? What do you think of Thomas Jefferson? Do you like him? Okay, good. Are we going to take down the statue because he was a major slave owner? Now are we going to take down his statue? You know what? It’s fine. You’re changing history. You’re changing culture.”
EARHARDT: “Now history is being erased at Christ Church in Virginia. Leaders there deciding to remove a plaque honoring president George Washington because it makes some parishioners feel unsafe."
