    “Trump Believes That He Is Losing Because He Hasn’t Been Racist Enough” https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2020/07/trump-is-losing-2020-polls-racism-black-lives-matter.html
    On Wednesday, three Trump confidants told Axios that the president regrets heeding Jared Kushner’s advice to broaden his appeal by embracing milquetoast police and criminal-justice reforms; as one source summarized Trump’s thinking, he wants “no more of Jared’s woke shit.”

    This account of Trump’s private reasoning comports with his public actions in recent days.

    “State senator charged with ‘injury’ to Virginia Confederate monument” https://www.politico.com/news/2020/08/17/virginia-confederate-monument-397503
    Sen. Louise Lucas, faces charges of conspiracy to commit a felony and injury to a monument in excess of $1,000, Portsmouth Police Chief Angela Greene said during a news conference. The protest occurred in June.

  3. Psalm 18:9 says:

    “Hurricane Laura’s howling winds in Louisiana tore through roofs, shattered windows and forced thousands of people to seek shelter. The hurricane also toppled a controversial Confederate monument in the heart of downtown Lake Charles.
    Just two weeks ago, the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury voted 10-4 to keep the South’s Defenders Monument in place in front of the Calcasieu Parish Courthouse.
    But Laura — with sustained winds of 150 mph when it made landfall early Thursday morning — knocked the 105-year-old statue off its base.” https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/27/us/hurricane-laura-damaged-confederate-monument-trnd/index.html
    The South’s Defenders Memorial Monument featured a young flag-bearing soldier, looking out over the lawn of the Calcasieu Parish Courthouse, where it has stood for more than 100 years.

  4. Historical negationism says:

    President Donald Trump on Wednesday vowed to defend statues of Confederate leaders during a trip to North Carolina, saying, “we’re not ashamed of our country.” https://www.newsmax.com/us/donaldtrump-confederate-statues-northcarolina/2020/09/02/id/985180/ “We’re not ashamed in America. We’re not ashamed of anything,” Trump said
    “Were Confederate Generals Traitors?” https://www.creators.com/read/walter-williams/06/17/were-confederate-generals-traitors “…Confederate generals were fighting for independence from the Union just as George Washington and other generals fought for independence from Great Britain. Those who’d label Gen. Robert E. Lee as a traitor might also label George Washington as a traitor. I’m sure Great Britain’s King George III would have agreed.” Walter E. Williams, a professor of economics at George Mason University.
    “Confederates Weren’t Patriots, They Were Traitors : And every Confederate soldier, by definition, committed treason” https://medium.com/our-human-family/confederates-werent-patriots-they-were-traitors-85862182f1b5
