ONN – Donald Trump Wanted To Take Down Confederate Flags In 2015; Some Say He’s Trying To Fool The South
Is President Trump really a true Southern Conservative? If you think the South and its people are all about rejecting flag burning and supporting the Confederate Flag, then you would have to say “yes” given the President’s constant comments.
But if that’s the case, then why did Trump tell reporters during the early part of his run for POTUS in 2015 that he believed The Confederate Flag should be taken down and put in a museum? And why did Donald Trump tell David Letterman he was supportive of flag burning as free speech when he was on Letterman’s show January 8th, 2015?
As ABC News reported:
In an interview with David Letterman on Jan. 8, 2015, just months before Trump launched his presidential campaign, he seemed to agree with Letterman “100 percent” that flag burning is a form of expression.
As first reported by The Washington Post, Trump and Letterman were discussing the terrorist attack on the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo. The conversation turned to freedom of speech and flag burning as an example of it.
“Here’s the example I’m always proud of as an American,” Letterman countered. “People, to demonstrate, they think, ‘We’re really going to stick it the United States. We’re going to set fire to the flag.’”
“Yeah, right,” Trump responded.
“And people get — ‘Oh, my God!’ ” Letterman said. “Well, no. If that’s how you feel, go ahead and burn the flag. Because this country is far greater than that symbol, and that symbol is standing for freedom of expression.”
“Sure. You’re 100 percent right,” Trump said, adding, “I understand where you’re coming from. It’s terrific.”
Why Is The Mainstream Media Giving Donald Trump A Free Pass On The Question Of His Authenticity?
Why is the mainstream media allowing Trump to get away with expressing believes he did not have before he ran for President? If he’s trying to manipulate and divide the country, it would seem the mainstream media is a willing partner in the process. But why?
Was Trump’s blasting NFL Players over kneeling before the National Anthem all part of a game to gin up southerners and midwesterners? If so, it seemed to work.
Whatever the case, someone should investigate this question, and as soon as possible.
