He just made a big mistake.
According to Breitbart News, CNN host Jake Tapper attacked President Donald Trump stating “he wants to continue to honor” confederate leaders.
Tapper said, “It has been a rough period for President Trump and military leaders with his former Defense Secretary, retired Marine General James Mattis assailing him for diving the country. A sentiment given an Amen by Trump’s former chief of staff, retired Marine Colonel John Kelly, not to mention criticism from General Colin Powell, Admiral Bill McRaven, General Martin Dempsey, General John Allen, Admiral Mike Mullen.”
He continued, “The president and his supporters have had plenty of nasty things to say about these men who have served our country, of course, no need to report them, you have access to Twitter. There is one group of generals, however, that the president is standing firm with, dead, racist losers. More specifically, the Confederate commanders, after whom ten Army bases are currently named. Days ago, the Pentagon said they want to begin a bipartisan conversation about renaming these ten bases, but the president shut it down — he wants to continue to honor them.” You can read the full article here.
