Sen. Duckworth Refuses to Say Whether Monuments with Washington’s Name Should Come Down
DUCKWORTH: "I’ll say we should start off with having a national dialogue on it. Right now we’re in the middle of a global pandemic. And one of our countries that are opposed to us, Russia, has put a bounty on American troops’ heads. What struck me at the speech at Mount Rushmore, he spent more time honoring dead confederates than he did the lives of our 130,000 Americans who lost their lives to Covid-19, or by wanting Russia off putting bounties off American’s heads. His priorities are wrong. What are we going to do to push Russia back? Instead he had no time for that. He spent all his time talking about dead traitors."
