Romney: Gen. Milley Is ‘a Brilliant Man,’ But I Don’t Want Federal Government Imposing a Curriculum on Our Schools

‘I think it’s very important for us as a nation not to, if you will, pour gasoline on racism of any kind’

EXCERPT:

ROMNEY: "You know, Gen. Milley is a person of extraordinary accomplishment and personal character and a brilliant man. I believe he was appointed during President Trump’s term."
TAPPER: "That’s right."
ROMNEY: "By the president. And so he is somebody in whom President Trump had confidence. And so, I think we will listen to what he has to say and weigh it appropriately. Look, I think it’s very important for us as a nation not to, if you will, pour gasoline on racism of any kind. I think it’s helpful for us to recognize that we come together when we express respect and love for other Americans regardless of our differences. I think efforts to divide us and to promote racism are dangerous and awful. At the same time, I certainly don’t want the federal government telling educators what they are allowed to teach in the classroom any more than I wanted to see common core with the federal government imposing a curriculum on local schools.”
