Lizza to McEnany: Does Trump Believe ‘It Was a Good Thing the South Lost’ the Civil War?
LIZZA: "The President has repeatedly inserted himself into this debate, and I think a lot of people trying to understand what his view of memorializing the Confederacy is, and the proper place for the Confederate flag. So, a couple of questions. One, does he believe, does President Trump believe that it was a good thing that the South lost the Civil War? And then, two, is he interested in following NASCAR's example and banning the Confederate flag at his own events?"
McENANY: "Your first question is absolutely absurd. He's proud of the United States of America. Second, with regard to our statues, Americans oppose tearing down our statues. There's a Harvard Harris poll released just last week that shows 60 percent of respondents said the statues should remain. And 71 percent said local governments should block groups from physically destroying the statues. So he stands on the side of preserving our history."
